Desperately Seeking SUSY

Abstract:

The theory of supersymmetry has existed for over thirty years. It remains possibly the only consistent theory extending the Standard Model to higher energies which is not experimentally excluded, and it still enjoys enormous popularity. Now that the final data from the LEP experiments have been analyzed, we can look back over what LEP was expected to discover about supersymmetry and what was actually found. I will review the current situation and discuss prospects for supersymmetry from current and future experiments. I will also try to answer the commonly asked question: "When are you going to give up on SUSY and just look for something else?"

Refreshments will be available in the lounge after the talk.
