Status of searches for EW-scale supersymmetry after LHC Run 2

Abstract: The second period of data taking at the Large Hadron Collider has provided a large dataset of proton-proton collisions that is unprecedented in terms of its centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV and integrated luminosity of almost 140/fb. These data constitute a formidable laboratory for the search for new particles predicted by models of supersymmetry. The analysis activity is still ongoing, but many results on supersymmetry have already been released by the general purpose experiments ATLAS and CMS. The aim of the seminar is to provide a user map into this remarkable body of research, which spans a multitude of experimental signatures and phenomenological scenarios. An overview of the main results will also be given.
