CERN is the pivotal facility in particle physics. After the discovery of the Higgs boson, the next frontier will be the search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Crucial connections exist with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at all faculty levels, spanning from Monte Carlo event generation (HERWIG, CalcHEP) to real data analysis, from numerical tool provision (MVAs, BDTs, Machine Learning algorithms, etc.) to database exploitation (HEPMDB). We have leading roles in ATLAS (Sussex, QMUL) as experimentalists, or CMS (Southampton) as theorists.
