Aim of the workshop:
The workshop will deal with several open issues in high-energy physics in the era of the LHC. We shall discuss topics ranging from Standard Model (QCD) phenomenology to fashionable new physics models, such as supersymmetry or Dark Matter theories. Most speakers will be young fellows working or collaborating with the phenomenology groups in the Rome area. All talks will be presented in a pedagogical way and plenty of time will be scheduled to allow discussion among participants.
