The activity of the network is organized in 7 Work Packages (WPs). The activity of the WPs, their inter- relations, and their connections to the industrial partners will be overseen by the Supervisory Board (SB). The SB will comprise named representative for each WP, these representative will summarize regularly the activity of the WPs. In each area we identify key objectives, and discuss their relevance and timeliness. We highlight the expertise available in the network teams for a successful achievement of the objectives, and the impact of these activities on the training of young researchers.

WP1: (Ultra) Minimal Walking Technicolor

Combine phenomenological studies and lattice results to investigate clear signals of new physics that could unveil a Minimal Walking theory at the LHC.

WP2: Fundamental representations – Partially Gauged Technicolor

This WP aims at phenomenological objectives similar to the WP1, namely to combine phenomenological studies and lattice results to identify clear signals of new physics that could unveil partially gauged technicolor at the LHC. The lattice investigation will take into account the fact that the fermions belong to the fundamental representation rather than the higher ones.

WP3: Orthogonal and Symplectic Technicolor

This WP aims at phenomenological objectives similar to the WP1, namely to combine phenomenological studies and lattice results to identify clear signals of new physics that could unveil OT/ST technicolor at the LHC. These models have the advantage to be quite surely non-conformal and possessing very intriguing dark matter candidates. We will develop the technology to initiate the lattice simulations of these models.

WP4: Orientifold planar equivalence

1) Determine the large-N equivalence between the bosonic sectors of the two theories by computing the spectrum at various N and extrapolating to infinite N. 2) Compute the corrections in 1/N to establish whether the theory at N=3 (which has the same colour content as real-world QCD) is close to the large-N limit. 3) Com- pare the lattice results with predictions coming from supersymmetric yang-Mills (e.g. degeneracy of the scalar and of the pseudoscalar) in the large-N limit.

WP5: Dualities, Suspersymmetry

Develop a novel and comprehensive understanding of the gauge dynamics of supersymmetric gauge theories vial supercomputers. Introduce new analytic ways to explore the gauge dynamics of nonsupersymmetric theories by initiating the Seiberg program for these theories.

WP6: Nonperturbative Extra Dimensions

Development of an efficient and flexible code for simulations of higher dimensional lattice gauge theories.

WP7: Software development and Hardware Testing

We aim to develop a common software framework using the new emerging standards, like the new OpenCL framework, to create a simple-to-use environment to make efficient use of these new machines. Such framework will have applications stretching beyond the physics community to many other applications. (milestones 1-3). Develop and maintain a set of benchmarks that can quantify the performance of a parallel platform with an index that is meaningful for real-world applications. (milestones 4-8).
