Event description: 

Particle physics is now in an era where discovery will require thoughtful exploration, looking for highly motivated signatures that have, for one reason or another, failed our experimental searching. Beyond the notable discovery of the Higgs Boson, the LHC otherwise has not rewritten textbooks, despite all indications that there are new phenomena to be discovered. This talk will discuss some of those motivations and a few promising research thrusts that should lead to some answers to the Standard Model’s mysteries. These will range from long-lived particle signatures, R-parity violating supersymmetry, and the future of higher energy colliders.
