Subject: CMS: the next generation -- A story from the frontier
Join us for a special coffee hour after the colloquium in the Tate Church St Atrium, jointly sponsored by the Climate committees of SPA and ESci

We are now a decade into the running period of the Large Hadron Collider. During this time we have discovered the Higgs boson, and have measured Standard Model processes with ever greater precision. Unfortunately, no smoking-gun signature of new physics, beyond the Standard Model, has appeared.

In this talk, I will highlight the exciting ways in which the CMS experiment is pushing the frontier of particle physics. This includes using new analysis techniques such as machine learning to extend our discovery reach to as-yet unprobed and challenging signatures, as well as building the next generation of the experiment in preparation for the High-Luminosity running period of the LHC starting in 2026.
