Title from opening screen.
Abstract: The results from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have redefined the boundary conditions for the discussion of future facilities for High Energy Physics. On one side, the discovery of the Higgs boson clearly defines the needs, the challenges and the prospects of future precise measurements of its properties. On the other side, the lack of signals for new physics stimulates reconsideration of theoretical scenarios, and opens a broad discussion of the best ways to move forward. In this lecture, the speaker reviews these issues, summarize the most recent initiatives, and provide some personal perspective.
Dr Michelangelo Mangano received his PhD in Theoretical Physics from the Scuola Normale Superiore. He held research positions at Princeton University, the Fermi US National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), and the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics, before he joined the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in 1995. He is currently a Senior Scientist at CERN?s Theoretical Physics Department.
Dr Mangano's research focuses on the properties of high energy particle collisions and their relevance to the exploration of fundamental interactions. Between 1988 and 2000, Dr Mangano also collaborated with the Collider Detector at Fermilab experiment at the Tevatron accelerator, contributing to the discovery of the top quark. He leads the LHC Physics Centre at CERN, which contributes to the interpretation of the LHC data, and coordinates the exploration of the physics potential of a 100 TeV proton collider, in the context of CERN's studies for a Future Circular Collider.
Dr Mangano was part of the scientific program committee of over 50 international conferences and workshops, as well as of the review committee for several institutions and laboratories, and of the editorial board of various international scientific journals.
