Searching for SUSY at the LHC and interplay with astroparticle physics
With the LHC now running, the community is looking forward to the upcoming influx of new data, which are eagerly awaited to shed light on supersymmetry. At the same time, there have been several exciting recent developments both on the direct and indirect dark matter detection fronts. This workshop addresses the question of what we can expect to learn about SUSY from the upcoming LHC data, both from the physics and the statistical point of view, and of the interplay with astroparticle probes, and more specifically with direct detection methods. The emphasis on the convergence between the two techniques will aim at favouring the exchange between the two communities, working respectively on the accelerator and on the direct detection sides.
