Enabling Searches for Long-lived Particles and Precision Timing at CMS
Cristian Peña, Fermilab,

Enabling new long-lived particles (LLPs) searches at the LHC presents HEP research with unique opportunities. Novel experimental techniques to identify and reconstruct LLPs will open up new possibilities for discoveries with striking signatures. I will present the current status of long-lived particles searches with a focus on CMS experimental results. I will follow a detector and trigger-based path and discuss the current efforts and  approaches to enhance the reach. 

As we approach the high luminosity era of the LHC, the CMS detector will be equipped with precision timing information in the form of two dedicated systems: the barrel timing layer and the endcap timing layer. These  upgrades will increase the capabilities of CMS with 4D-reconstruction for the first time and  significantly enhance the physics reach of the LHC.
