New Physics at the LHC

The New Physics part will meet at Les Houches during the period 17-26 June 2009, but people should form an idea of the studies they would like to pursue before that. All work should be completed by the end of 2009. The preference will be for studies focused on recent developments in new physics possibilities.

Discussion sessions:

Thursday, 15:00 Auditorium: BSM with top, incl. jet structure

Friday, 9:00 Auditorium: Dark matter & colliders, hidden sectors/valleys

Saturday (note the change!), 11:00 Auditorium: Dictionaries mapping signatures to models, incl spin/mass determination and model-independent searches.

xxxx: Flavour violating Higgs couplings (Kaustubh Agashe).

Monday, 14:00, QCD room: Four top events (Ben Gripaios).

Monday, afternoon: Dark Matter from Extra Dimensions at the LHC (Giacomo Cacciapaglia)

Saturday, 14:00, QCD room: Use of polarized tops (Ritesh Singh).

(Before registration, we had listed some possibilities:

   - Hidden valleys (and other models with long-lived particles)
   - New physics decaying to top quarks
   - Exotic quarks
   - 4th family (mirror or sequential)
   - LHC-dark matter: LHC signals related to hints from PAMELA, ATTIC, DAMA

Furthermore, it would be interesting to further develop guidelines for follow-ups after a potential discovery: if we see X then what should we look for?)
