After a first successful operation of the LHC in September 2008, the 27 km long Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN (Geneva/Switzerland) will begin colliding protons in 2009, becoming the world?s highest energy particle collider. The main goals of the LHC are the search for the Higgs boson, the last remaining undiscovered particle of the Standard Model of particle physics, and the search for physics "Beyond the Standard Model (BSM)". Using a few BSM searches as illustrative examples , I will talk about what we expect to see, what we might see, and how we are planning do it.
