Organised by ECFA-UK and IPPP, Durham, this workshop is intended to bring the community together for a physics (rather than strategic) focused workshop.  This will discuss the major physics goals of the next decades of particle physics and encourage the UK contributions to analysis studies which can be submitted to the strategy process, either as individual studies, or as submissions by already-established consortia, or as inputs to the ECFA e+e- study (as an example).  Further, it will provide talks on opportunities and challenges in detector R&D and accelerator physics.  This is intended to be open to all, with participation across all particle physics scientific interests - theorists and experimentalists - and across the community demographic.  If you have an ongoing study in any aspect of future physics, please contact the session chairs noted in the indico. It is not intended to discuss preferences for facilities at this meeting, rather to inform the next steps in our national discussion.  We then plan around a month later to hold the first "drafting day" for the UK to form views on strategic statements as input to the ESPPU process.


If you have topics to contribute please contact the session chairs (in each case the ones marked with a * indicate ECFA-UK members helping with that area):

  • Detector R&D: Chris Parkes, Daniela Bortoletto*, Joel Goldstein*
  • Accelerator R&D: Phil Burrows, Jim Clarke, Stewart Boogert, Matthew Wing*, Haroon Rafique*
  • Theory cross-cutting the below areas: Michael Spannowsky, Sinead Farrington*
  • e+e-: Guy Wilkinson, Aidan Robson*
  • eh: Uta Klein, Matthew Wing*
  • 10 TeV pCM colliders: Andy Pilkington, Karol Krizka and Sarah Williams*
  • HL-LHC: Jon Butterworth, Sinead Farrington*
  • Neutrinos: Kirsty Duffy, Sarah Williams*
  • Direct Dark Matter: Sally Shaw, Sarah Williams*
  • Non-collider experiments: Carl Gwilliam, Mark Lancaster, Joel Goldstein*
