Description: 
This Workshop is the ninth in a series whose aim is to bring together theorists and experimentalists working on the phenomenology of TeV colliders. The emphasis in this series of workshops has been on the physics at the LHC and the Tevatron. The highlight of the 2015 Les Houches Edition is to take full advantage of the data that has been collected at the LHC so far and prepare for the future runs. With this much data, following the discovery of a Higgs-like particle, one aim of this Workshop is how to best sharpen our tools and techniques in order to reconstruct the profile of this particle and possibly uncover New Physics. An equally important aim is to reassess some of the still open fundamental questions in the light of this discovery and investigate which kind of New Physics such a particle may be hinting at. In view of the above considerations, the Workshop will devote particular attention to: (i) Higgs physics, and how it shapes our view on the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking; (ii) related searches for New Physics and (iii) progress in new techniques for the calculations and simulation of Standard Model processes.
