Charge/Theme of the session:

  1. NP searches:
    • What are the most promising NP models?
    • What are the best discovery signals for such models?
    • What are the most constraining observables for a given model?
    • Given a set of observables, what are the limiting factors, and which additional measurements are needed for improvement?
    • Are present and future experiments covering all potentially interesting channels/observables?
    • What is the complementarity of direct and indirect searches for given models (eg. SUSY)
