The Third Annual Large Hadron Collider Physics Conference


St. Petersburg, Russia on August 31 – September 5, 2015.

The LHCP2015 conference is the major international conference of the experimental collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Geneva. This conference is a result of a recent merger of two international conferences: "Physics at Large Hadron Collider" and "Hadron Collider Physics Symposium". The first two conferences in this series were held in Barcelona, May 2013 (LHCP2013) and in New York City, June 2014 (LHCP2014).

The program was devoted to a review of the latest experimental and theoretical results on hadron collider physics, especially the results of the new LHC Run 2, and a discussions on the outlook for the coming years. The conference provided a lively discussion between experimenters and theorists on topics such as the Standard Model Physics and Beyond, the Higgs Boson, Supersymmetry and Heavy Ion Physics and planning for the high luminosity upgrades during the plenary talks, parallel and poster sessions.

The LHCP2015 conference was hosted by: 

National Research Center "Kurchatov Institute" (NRC KI) 
Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute (PNPI NRC KI)
High Energy Physics Institute (IHEP NRC KI) 
Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics (ITEP NRC KI) 
Joint Institute of Nuclear Research (JINR)
