Aim of the workshop:
We are all aware that the so-longed discovery of some kind of physics beyond the standard model that could be responsible for stabilizing the electroweak scale has so far escaped all experimental efforts (LHC Run 1, B-factories, EDM searches, etc.). As we know, the expectation that new physics should show up around the electroweak scale has been mainly motivated by naturalness arguments. Therefore, while all our community is eagerly awaiting the results of LHC Run 2, we believe that an unbiased scientific attitude should also reconsider issues related to the naturalness paradigm.
During this 3-day workshop, we plan to have only three or four talks each day, and plenty of time to discuss and reanalyze jointly issues like: the naturalness paradigm, its predictivity, its survival chances, possible alternatives and time scales for crucial tests.
