VBScan COST action ended - but will live on!

The active funding for VBScan has come to an end with the final meeting, the International Multiboson Interactions Workshop (MBI), co-organised by VBScan at the end of August 2021 in Milan (https://indico.cern.ch/event/1027184/). This website documents the status of VBScan at the end of the COST action. However, the network and connections we have forged will live on -- and we hope to see each other again at conferences, during collaborations meetings and the like and to find out something new together.

Our final report: Resources for the VBScan physicist

The main goal of the VBSCan project is to investigate the Vector Boson Scattering (VBS) process and its implications for the Standard Model, by coordinating existing theoretical and experimental efforts in the area and by best exploiting hadron colliders data, thereby laying the groundwork for long-term studies of the subject and creating a solidly interconnected community of VBS experts.


Vector Boson Scattering processes are key for the understanding of the Standard Model of particle physics and involve the internal scattering of bosons. They have been measured in 2017 for the first time ever - exciting times for particle physicists exploring these new territories!


The main goal of the Action is declined in a set of deliverables, which are listed with their completion status at this link.
