Kinematic Variables for New Physics at the LHC, Caltech October 4-6, 2013

Paritally sponsored by Caltech's Division of Physics, Mathematics and Astronomy

The workshop will discuss in detail numerous innovative kinematic variables and analyses approaches towards the discovery and characterization of new dynamics at the LHC, focusing on dark matter (SUSY and beyond) and associated applications of the new variables and methods in higgs physics. Experimental, theoretical, and phenomenological aspects will be brought forward for discussion with emphasis on traps, pitfalls and challenges in our explorations ahead.
