and Format of the Workshop
Workshop is the second in a series whose aim is to bring together
theorists and experimentalists working on the phenomenology of the upcoming
colliders. This year, the topics cover primarily the physics at the
Tevatron and the LHC, although issues relevant to the next generation of
colliders as well as the impact of cosmology and astrophysics will be addressed.
Themes to be covered in the Workshop range from Quantum Chromodynamics
to the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking, notably Higgs
Physics, Supersymmetry and the phenomenology of extra-dimensions. The strong
interplay between the signals from the New Physics and their respective
backgrounds will be emphasized. Three Working Groups have been set
up covering these different aspects of the searches at the colliders. The
projects are to start in January 2001 and should be completed by the end
of the year.
meeting at les Houches, between May 21st and June 1st, will be the culminating
point of the Workshop where, besides the Working Group activities, a few
lectures and review talks are planned.
to the Workshop is open to all, however due to space limitation in Les
Houches, attendance to the meeting is limited to 70 participants.
Houches Centre for Physics is located in the French Alps, about an hour
from Geneva and an hour from Annecy. The Centre has a tradition of organising
Schools, Workshops and Conferences for more than three decades now and
boasts an excellent library. For the purpose of this Workshop a special
computing system will be installed.
