Beyond the Standard Model after the first run of the LHC

May 20, 2013 - Jul 12, 2013

The first run of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is planned to be over by the end of 2012. By then the Standard Model Higgs boson mass range from the LEP bound to about 700 GeV will have been explored, providing the first hint of the origin of electroweak symmetry breaking. In addition the LHC will have provided the first significant tests of the main Beyond the Standard Model ideas and model predictions. We propose to discuss the status of theoretical ideas and their confrontation with the data from the first LHC run in a GGI workshop in Florence during the spring of 2013, both from the bottom-up perspective starting from the experimental data and from the top-down perspective starting from theoretical models and their UV completion.

Dates of the Conference: July 9-12, 2013
Dates of the Training Week: June 10-15, 2013

General schedule of the topics:

- May 20- June 14:
Electroweak symmetry breaking : elementary or composite Higgs ?
Strongly-coupled and holographic models
Extra U(1)s and TeV scale new physics models
Complementarity between LHC and dark matter searches

- june 17- july 12:
Low energy supersymmetric models and supersymmetry breaking
Non-standard supersymmetric spectra at the LHC
Possible connections of TeV scale physics with cosmology and string theory

Training week: June 10-15, 2013

Lectures on:

- The State of Supersymmetry after Run I of the LHC (Nathaniel Craig)
- CFTs for Physics Beyond the Standard Model (David Poland)
- Composite Higgs: Principles and Applications (Andrea Wulzer)
