In order to apply/register for this program, the Institut Pascal first invites you to create an IPa-account, which will serve as a way for you to have direct access to your program registration and allow you to update your preferences directly into the IPa-system. Creation of an account is a two-step procedure. First, please click on the log in button. After creating your profile you will receive an email containing a confirmation link which will prompt you to enter your password. Once your IPa-account is created, you will be able to sign up for the program of your choice within the list of all IPa-programs.
The LHC, albeit having collected only approximately one percent of its projected dataset, has been extremely successful with landmark results such as the discovery of the Higgs boson and a vast program of Standard Model measurements and searches for new phenomena. The outstanding goal of the LHC community is now the exploitation of the full potential of the machine and in particular in its reach in precision Standard Model measurements, in the challenging environment of hadron collisions. First milestone measurements, such as the coupling properties of the Higgs boson by both the ATLAS and CMS experiments and the W-boson mass by the ATLAS experiment, which is to date the most precise single experiment measurement to date with the CDF measurement at the Tevatron, were carried out.
Electroweak and Higgs precision measurements at the LHC not only require the utmost control of experimental aspects, but also relies greatly on the physics processes modeling and theory predictions. Progress in these area will necessarily involve a close collaboration of the experiments with the theory, phenomenology and simulation community. This project proposes a long term series of workshops to pursue the current precision measurements program and explore extensions of the program at the LHC. It is an essential component to complete the success of LHC program. This series of workshops will also serve as an input in the crucial and forthcoming elaboration of the European Strategy for particle physics to be held in 2020.
