Some Information

This Workshop is the third in a series whose aim is  to bring together
theorists and experimentalists working on the phenomenology of the
upcoming TeV colliders . This year, the  topics cover primarily the
physics at the Tevatron and the LHC, although issues relevant to the
next
generation of colliders as well as the impact of cosmology and
astrophysics will be addressed. Themes to be covered in the Workshop
range
from Quantum ChromoDynamics to  the mechanism of Electroweak Symmetry
Breaking , notably Higgs physics , Supersymmetry and the
phenomenology of Extra-dimensions . The strong interplay between the
signals from the New Physics and their respective backgrounds will
be emphasized.  Three Working Groups have been set up covering these
different aspects of the searches at the colliders. The projects are
to start in February 2003 and should be completed by the end of the
year.

The meeting at les Houches, between May 26th and June 6th , will be the
culminating point of the Workshop where, besides the Working
Group activities, a few lectures and review talks are planned.
Participation to the Workshop is open to all however due to space
limitation in
Les Houches attendance to the meeting is limited to 70 participants.

Les Houches Centre for Physics is located in the French Alps, about an
hour from Geneva and an hour from Annecy. The Centre has a
tradition of organising Schools, Workshops and Conferences for more than
five decades now and boasts an excellent library. For the
purpose of this Workshop a special computing system will be installed.
