This is the 8th general workshop of the “Forum on the interpretation of the LHC results for BSM studies”, or LHC Reinterpretation Forum (RIF) for short. Its aim is to review new developments on the tools, phenomenology, and experimental sides and to prepare for the Run 3 results of the LHC. In this context, the major topics of this workshop will be: 


Continuing the conversation from the last workshop session, we would like to include general best practices for the reinterpretation/reuse of experimental results beyond the LHC and particularly welcome contributions regarding results from precision or astrophysical experiments.

Background: The purpose of the RIF is to discuss topics related to the BSM (re)interpretation of LHC data, including the development of the necessary public recasting tools and related infrastructure, and to provide a platform for continuous interaction between theorists and with the experiments. So far, seven general workshops have been held at CERN, Fermilab, and Imperial College London. They resulted in the 2020 report on Reinterpretation of LHC Results for New Physics: Status and recommendations after Run 2, arXiv:2003.07868, and the white paper on Publishing statistical models: Getting the most out of particle physics experiments, arXiv:2109.04981 (both published in SciPost Physics), which will be the basis of this meeting.
