The "Precision SUSY Higgs Mass Calculation Initiative" (also known as KUTS) was launched in 2014 to provide a forum for discussions between the different groups involved in Higgs-mass calculations in supersymmetric models.
After eleven biannual meetings held in nine different European institutes (See the web page https://sites.google.com/site/kutsmh/) a working-group report was published at the end of 2020 (Eur.Phys.J.C 81 (2021) 5, 450). The report provided a comprehensive overview of the topic, documented all of the developments discussed during the KUTS meetings, and outlined the prospects for future improvements.
After a COVID-imposed hiatus, we are organizing a second generation of KUTS-style meetings. In this new series of meetings the focus will broaden to include the precision calculation of several Higgs-boson properties beyond the mass -- and possibly of other observables in the EW sector, such as the $W$-boson mass -- in both supersymmetric and non-supersymmetric models.
The meeting at CERN will serve as the kick-off meeting of the renewed KUTS initiative, and it will include a discussion of the aims of the initiative.
At the organizational level, we plan to follow the same format as in the original KUTS initiative: three-day meetings (one afternoon, one full day, one morning) in which relatively few talks are presented and discussions proceed freely, without a strict schedule.
