Exploring the Lifetime Frontier
Jose Zurita (IFIC Valencia)

In the last years there has been a renewed interest in the particle physics theoretical and experimental communities on the study of exotic (non-standard) signatures at colliders, including Long-Lived Particles (LLPs).
In this talk I will first give a brief overview of the theoretical motivations for long-lived particles. Later I will illustrate the impact of LLPs in the current LHC physics programme, including new LHC detectors specifically hunting for LLPs (MoEDAL, FASER, SND@LHC), detector proposals under consideration (MATHUSLA, ANUBIS, FPF) and relevant upgrades to the ATLAS, CMS and LHCb experiments. Finally, I will present snapshots of novel signatures and the implications of LLP searches in the context of neutrino, axion, dark matter and Higgs physics.
