Results and future plans of the MoEDAL experiment
The unprecedented collision energy of the LHC has opened up a new discovery frontier. Unfortunately, signs of new physics have yet to be seen. The LHC's first dedicated search experiment, MoEDAL, started data taking for LHC Run 2. MoEDAL is designed to search highly ionising particle avatars of new physics using pp and heavy-ion collisions at the LHC. The planned upgrade for MoEDAL at Run 3 - the MAPP detector (MoEDAL Apparatus for Penetrating Particles) - will extend MoEDAL's physics reach to include feebly interacting and long-lived messengers of physics beyond the Standard Model. This will allow us to explore a number of models of new physics, including dark-sector models, in a complementary way to that of conventional LHC collider detectors. This article focuses on recent results and plans for the LHC Run 3.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
