Kruger 2016: discovery Physics at the LHC
The workshop Kruger 2016 on discovery Physics at the LHC will be held in Portia Shabangu Road, Skukuza, Mpumulanga, South Africa, 5-9 December 2016.
Five days of plenary talks and parallel sessions where some of the very latest experimental results in high energy physics will be presented. The study of excited nuclear matter, as it emerged from the primordial matter created by the Big Bang at the beginning of the Universe. The latest results on searches for the Higgs boson.
Major topics of KRUGER 2016 are:
- The status of the CERN Large Hadron Collider.
- Heavy ion collisions, Dense hadronic matter, Jets, Flow.
- Standard Model physics at hadron colliders, status of the Brout-Englert-Higgs boson, SUSY and exotic particle searches.
- Discussions on the latest Monte Carlo tools, cross-section calculations for signal and background processes to higher orders, as well as strategies for new physics searches are expected.
