Welcome to the website of the
LHC-D working group on SUSY and BSM Physics
This working group is part of an initiative of the
Elementarteilchenphysik (KET), which includes five physics topics:
The purpose of the working group is to provide a platform for
communication and collaboration among theorists and experimentalists
who are interested in SUSY and BSM physics at the Large Hadron
Collider. The working group is particularly aimed at young scientists
within the German/Swiss/Austrian physics community.
The first meeting of the SUSY/BSM group was held in Aachen on March
7-8, 2006 (program
for some photographs of the first meeting.
The second meeting of the SUSY/BSM
group will be held in Bonn on February 22-23, 2007.
The program can be found here.
The list of registered participants can be found here.
We have organised three topical working groups to foster discussions and collaborations on specific issues:
If you are interested in participating in one of the topical working
groups, please contact the respective conveners listed above.
- SUSY/BSM parameter determination and benchmarks
(conveners K. Desch and

- non-commutative models
- strong electroweak symmetry breaking
- SUSY parameter determination: NMSSM versus MSSM
- R-parity violating SUSY models
- threshold effects in SUSY parameter determination
- determination of SUSY masses
- SUSY/BSM tools
(conveners W. de Boer and
between the hadronic background for SUSY/BSM from the major generators
(Pythia, Herwig, Sherpa,...)
problems in specific studies discovered sofar (which generators for
which background in which process are bad, incomplete,
- strategies for
relating new signals with SUSY parameter space and other BSM
- Model independent searches
(conveners P. Biallass and
- the potential of such strategies to search for unknown physics and
models with huge parameter numbers like Supersymmetry
- development of novel search strategies
- concepts for early LHC data taking
- ways to determine the origin of a signal
There is also a LHC-D Wiki
page where we try to keep a record of required and available theoretical
tools for the LHC.
