Off the Beaten Track: Long-Lived Particles at the LHC
Tova Holmes, University of Tennessee, Knoxville,

The LHC has reached a new era: nearly a decade without any large jumps in energy or luminosity. For those interested in finding Beyond the Standard Model (BSM) physics, a paradigm shift is required. In my talk I'll discuss a search program looking for long-lived particles, which often escape detection from standard BSM searches, due to the difficulty of triggering on and reconstructing their unconventional signatures. These challenges result in a long-lived particle landscape full of unexcluded territory, opening up opportunities to find TeV-scale Supersymmetry, hidden sectors, right-handed neutrinos, and more. My talk will focus on the challenge of triggering in these searches, and how we can expand our capability to explore these new signatures.
