Prospects for Charged Higgs Discovery at Colliders
Charged 2010 27-30 September 2010 Uppsala University, Sweden
The third international workshop "Prospects for Charged Higgs Discovery at Colliders" was organized in Uppsala 27-30 September 2010. This was the third workshop of this kind - the first two ones were held in September 2006 and 2008 in Uppsala. At the time of the workshop, the LHC has been in operation for about six months and a few tens of inverse picobarns were collected by the experiments. This has allowed to make some first investigations based on physics data of QCD backgrounds, calibration methods based on Standard Model signals, analysis tools, reconstruction efficiencies and fake rates as well as trigger schemes. Moreover, new theoretical and phenomenological ideas concerning charged Higgs bosons have been developed since the last workshop in 2008. Further investigations of the charged Higgs discovery reach of the experiments have also been carried out. The plan of this third workshop was to bring together experimentalists and theorists to review the development, since the second workshop, of charged Higgs searches at colliders, in particular with regard to data analysis tools and triggers in the various experiments, theory/phenomenology and generator level simulation and strategies for experimental data analysis. New results in these fields were presented and discussed at the workshop.
CHARGED2008 16-19 September 2008 Uppsala, Sweden
The second international workshop "Prospects for Charged Higgs Discovery at Colliders" was organized in Uppsala 16-19 September 2008, following the first workshop under the same heading held two years earlier also in Uppsala. The 2008 workshop was organized primarily in view of the upcoming experimental program at the LHC. The plan with this workshop was to bring together theorists and experimentalists to review the development, since the first workshop, of charged Higgs searches at colliders, in particular with regard to theory, phenomenology and Monte Carlo generators as well as to strategies for experimental datasimulation, for triggers and for data analysis in the various experiments. New results in these fields were presented in invited and contributed talks to the workshop and discussed in special break-out sessions. Special emphasis was placed on the potential for charged Higgs discovery at the LHC."
