What is the LPCC

The LPCC collects a set of initiatives in support of the LHC physics programme. These include the coordination of the joint LHC working groups, the organization of Workshops, the support of the development of event generators and other physics tools and the maintenance of this web page, which is intended as a portal into LHC physics resources for the whole HEP community. All LPCC initiatives are documented throughout these pages. Feedback is welcome!


A Newsletter is distributed by Email every few weeks, with updates on the publications of the LHC experiments, announcements of forthcoming events, and other news.
