The final panel discussion at the Maryland SEARCH workshop — six theoretical particle physicists talking about the 2011 experimental results from the Large Hadron Collider [LHC] and looking ahead to the 2012 data — has finally been posted online, along with the rest of the presentations at the workshop. I wrote about the workshop, which took place in mid-March, here and here. In the latter post, I wrote:

The workshop concluded with a panel discussion — the only point during the entire workshop when theorists were formally asked to say something. The panel consisted of Michael Peskin* (senior statesman [**and my Ph.D. advisor*] famous for many reasons, including fundamental work on the implications of highly precise measurements ), Nima Arkani-Hamed *(junior statesman, and famous for helping develop several revolutionary new ways of approaching the hierarchy problem)*, Riccardo Rattazzi *(also famous for conceptual advances in dealing with the hierarchy problem)*, Gavin Salam (*famous for his work advancing the applications of the theory of quarks and gluons, including revolutionary methods for dealing with jets)*, and myself *(famous for talking too much… though come to think of it, that was true of the whole panel, except Gavin.)* And Raman Sundrum, one of the organizers* (and famous for his collaboration with Lisa Randall in introducing “warped” extra dimensions, and also anomaly-mediated supersymmetry breaking [which was competitive with a paper by Rattazzi and his colleagues])* informally participated too.
