Workshop on Emerging New Physics at the LHC, to be held May 18-20 at the UO

The world’s most powerful particle accelerator, located in Europe and where the UO has a strong presence, will operate in its second run with more energy than ever with a promise of finding new fundamental particles. The first run delivered the long-elusive Higgs boson.

Just what may be the next discovery? That’s the focus of a three-day conference, Emerging New Physics at the LHC, to be held May 18-20 at the UO. Participants will represent 12 institutions, including 17 UO physicists, four from the University of Washington and 11 other scientists.

The workshop, says co-organizer Spencer Chang, assistant professor in the Department of Physics, is designed to foster discussion and collaboration. It will be held in the Institute of Theoretical Science conference room on the fourth floor of Willamette Hall.
