In the recent past, several proposals have been made to exploit heavy ion collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to search for new phenomena, including axion-like particles, long lived particles or magnetic monopoles. The objective of this workshop is to bring together members of the involved communities to exploit the potential of these ideas, either in a parasitic mode or in dedicated runs at the LHC or future colliders. We want to provide a unique opportunity for theorists, experimentalists and accelerator physicists who previously had no or little exchange with each other to discuss new approaches as well as practical and fundamental limitations and form collaborations for future research.

There is no fee. Formal registration (required to join the conference dinner) closes on Friday November 30th at 12:00. Everyone is, however, very welcome to join the talks and discussions without registration!


Video streaming of the talks is available via this link.

We hare happy to announce that the workshop resulted in an input to the European Strategy for Particle Physics (ESPP) and was covered by the CERN Courier (page 22).
