5th FCC Physics workshop

7—11 February 2022 | Liverpool, UK

Venue: University of Liverpool
Organizer: CERN
Registration deadline: 16/01/2022
Contact: Prof Carsten P Welsch

Following the recommendations from the European Strategy for Particle Physics, CERN has now launched the FCC Feasibility study (FCC-FS), of the FCC colliders (ee and hh) as a global project with its international partners. The study goals include optimization of the placement and layout of the ring and related infrastructure, and demonstration of the geological, technical, environmental and administrative feasibility of the tunnel and surface areas, as well as the preparatory administrative processes required for a potential project approval, together with the Host States. The study will deepen the design of FCC-ee and FCC-hh and their injectors, supported by R&D on key technologies. The financial feasibility study will focus on the first stage (tunnel and FCC-ee). One of the pillars of the FCC-FS organization is the Physics Experiments and Detectors (PED) study, in which the physics case and detector concepts will be consolidated for both colliders (FCC-ee and FCC-hh, with its heavy ion programme and with the e-p option).

The 5th FCC Physics, Experiments and Detectors workshop will reflect the status and achievements of FCC PED studies and initiate new activities. All PED Working group packages will be represented, Physics Programme, Physics Performance, Detector Concepts and Physics Software and Computing, as well as the joint FCC-ee Accelerator-Experiment working groups (machine-detector interface (MDI) and centre-of-mass energy calibration, polarization and monochromatization (EPOL)). Joint sessions and tutorials will reinforce the synergies between working groups.

The workshop welcomes the widest community, geographically, thematically (colliders and beyond), and members of other ‘Higgs factory’ and future projects.
