Understanding the TeV Scale Through LHC Data, Dark Matter, and Other Experiments

The 36th Johns Hopkins Workshop (http://physics-astronomy.jhu.edu/workshops/) will be organized in the context of the GGI Workshop Understanding the TeV Scale Through LHC Data, Dark Matter, and Other Experiments , on October 16, 17, 18, 19, 2012 and it will be held in Arcetri, Florence, on the premises of the Galileo Galilei Institute (GGI) for Theoretical Physics. The GGI is located on the hill of Arcetri, near the house (Villa Il Gioiello) where Galileo spent periods of his life and died in 1642. The Conference will be held during the second week of the Workshop and it will have the aim of presenting and discussing the new data from the LHC. At this time the LHC will have completed its initial run, and this will be an exciting opportunity to understand the results. In addition to hearing from the LHC experimentalists, we plan to have input from the Tevatron, as well as dark matter direct and indirect detection, flavor physics, and other related searches.

- Particle Physics in the middle of the LHC results;
- The physical origin of the Fermi scale;
- Interplay of LHC with Dark Matter and Flavour Physics;
