 Abstract

 

The Large Hadron Collider is now taking data for its second run after an upgrade from the run that discovered the Higgs Boson. The new run will clarify the properties of the Higgs Boson and search for evidence of new physics that will help to shape our understanding of the small-scale structure and origins of the universe. We will discuss the physics background and expectations of the current experiments and long-term plans for the future of CERN.
