Abstract

We report on the status of efforts to improve the reinterpretation of searches and measurements at the LHC in terms of models for new physics, in the context of the LHC Reinterpretation Forum. We detail current experimental offerings in direct searches for new particles, measurements, technical implementations and Open Data, and provide a set of recommendations for further improving the presentation of LHC results in order to better enable reinterpretation in the future. We also provide a brief description of existing software reinterpretation frameworks and recent global analyses of new physics that make use of the current data.

Current status:
Publication decision taken: accept

Editorial decision: For Journal SciPost Physics: Publish
(status: Editorial decision fixed and (if required) accepted by authors)



Author comments upon resubmission

This version incorporates the feedback from the referees, which was broadly positive but encouraged clearer presentation of the concrete recommendations, and finessing of some text. Thanks for the constructive process and your patience.

List of changes

Introduction of end-of-section lists of concrete recommendations; refinements to discussions of motivation, pseudocode, and MC sample sharing; small updates to MadAnalysis and Contur text and citations.
