A decade ago, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), was started with the mission of exploring the universe of particles with unprecedented energy. In 2012, the announcement of the discovery of the Higgs boson crowned the effort of the particle physics community in its search for the last missing link of the Standard Model. However, the theory remains incomplete, as it incorporates only three out of the four fundamental forces. Fundamental questions remain and physicists are convinced that there is new physics beyond the Standard Model and are looking for new phenomena that would open up new perspectives and provide answers to these fundamental mysteries. From the discovery of new particles to precision measurements, the session will discuss the status of research at the LHC and its future. By 2025, the LHC will become the high-luminosity LHC, allowing the exploration of the subatomic world in even more detail: what are the technological and scientific challenges ahead? The panel will also look at the longer-term future: what could be the new machines and experiments for tomorrow, which would further push the limits of our knowledge? This session will be illustrated live by French cartoonist Lison Bernet.
