The Roadmap for Discoveries at the LHC
from the LHC)
AbstractSince a few years experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have started exploring the physics at the high energy frontier. A rich harvest of initial physics results has been obtained by the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations that allow one already to test, at highest energies ever reached in a laboratory, the Standard Model (SM) of elementary particles, and to make searches Beyond the SM (BSM). Significant results have already been obtained in searches for the Higgs Boson, which could establish the postulated electro-weak symmetry breaking mechanism in the SM, as well as for BSM physics like Supersymmetry (SUSY) with its possible relevance for the Dark Matter in the Universe, Extra Dimensions, production of new heavy particles and others. The status of these BSM searches, and their future prospects at the LHC, will be emphasized in this talk, whereas the details on the Higgs search will be central to a forthcoming Colloquium by Prof. S. Bertolucci.
