> Title:  Jet Physics at the LHC Run II
> Abstract:  This year marks the beginning of the second run of the LHC. The increased center-of-mass energy will make more stringent studies of properties properties of the Higgs boson possible and it will extend the reach of searches of physics Beyond the Standard Model. The exploration of this new energy regime cannot be successful without a careful  (re)consideration of Standard Model processes and backgrounds, often dominated by strong interactions.

On the other hand, the large center-of-mass energy implies that we have to understand processes with many high-pT jets.
