New Physics Searches in Heavy Ion Collisions

17 May 2021 — 21 May 2021

In the recent past, several proposals have been made to exploit heavy ion collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to search for new phenomena in particle physics, including axion-like particles, long lived particles beyond the Standard Model and magnetic monopoles. The objective of this workshop is to bring together members of the involved communities to exploit the potential of these ideas, either during scheduled LHC runs or in dedicated efforts at the LHC or future colliders. We want to create a unique opportunity for exchange between scientists working in different fields of experimental physics, theoretical physics, accelerator physics and detector physics that otherwise have little connection.
