Searching for New Physics at the LHC



Abstract
As we enter the LHC era, a wide range of data will craft our thinking of physics at the weak scale. The leap forward from the LHC will be accompanied by the ongoing search for the Higgs boson and other new states at the Tevatron. Altogether, this promises to unlock the nature of electroweak symmetry breaking and the hierarchy problem. Simultaneously, cosmic ray experiments may provide clues to the nature of dark matter, while direct detection experiments will probe a broad range of WIMP parameter space. New proposals for low-energy experiments can explore the possibility of lighter, weakly coupled states. On the eve of this major transition, we aim to bring together scientists pursuing the reach of these experiments from a variety of directions to consider the broad range of signals that may await us. The conference will be a concluding event for the "Searching for New Physics at the LHC" workshop at GGI.
