SWHEPPS 2016, the StrategicWorkshop on High Energy Particle Physics in Switzerland, was a 2.5 day workshop that took place from 8-10 June 2016 at Seminarhotel Aegerisee. It was modeled as a plenary session-only retreat of primarily senior CH researchers and PIs engaged in CHIPP pillar 1 activities, i.e. research at the high energy and low energy frontier (an introduction to the pillar structure of CHIPP can be found in the CHIPP roadmap).
SWHEPPS 2016: Strategy Workshop on High-Energy Particle Physics in Switzerland
After the successful strategy workshop on astro-particle and neutrino physics (SWAPS 2014), the CHIPP Executive Board has proposed to have a similar workshop on “High-Energy Particle Physics”. This workshop will focus on CHIPP's activities in the so-called Pillar 1 and thus on the HEP frontier and also on the high-intensity and low-energy precision experiments. The workshop also represents an ideal kick-off to prepare a Pillar 1 white paper.
