Workshop on electroweak corrections for LHC physics

Europe/London
IPPP Durham

IPPP Durham

Description
The primary goal of this workshop is to review the status of electroweak corrections for relevant LHC physics processes. It should guide experimenters in choosing in how far their analysis is impacted by such corrections and provide ample time for discussions on further projects. The focus will mainly be on Standard Model signatures and measurements, and how they are impacted by electroweak corrections. The workshop will take place from Monday 24th September to Wednesday 26th September at the IPPP in Durham. A workshop in a similar spirit was organised in 2003 and held in Grey College.
