The latest results on searches for evidence of new physics (not including supersymmetry) from the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations will be presented. The focus will be on Run 2 results at 13 TeV. Topics include searches for diphoton and diboson resonances, dark matter, high mass di-jet and ttbar resonances, vector-like quarks, and long-lived particles. Additional topics will be added as available.

We present predictions for the electroweak production of top-quark pairs at the LHC in the presence of a new neutral gauge boson based on a new calculation which includes the NLO QCD corrections implemented in the parton shower program POWHEG. The interference effects of Standard Model and New Physics contributions are properly taken into account and the QED singularities, first appearing at...

The preferred channel for the search for new heavy spin-1 particles is the Drell-Yan di-lepton production, and traditionally, these searches have exploited the Narrow Width Approximation (NWA) for the signal, thereby neglecting the effect of the interference between the additional Z'-bosons and the Standard Model Z and photon. Recently, it has been established that both finite width and...

Dark matter searches at the LHC are exploring new models and new regime with every new result. I take a specific example of monojet dark matter searches at the LHC and sketch their impact on two dark matter scenarios. The two models under considerations are, dark matter motivated explanations of the 750 GeV diphoton excess and dark matter interactions with the Standard Models involving...

Fermionic and vector resonances are a generic prediction of theories where electroweak symmetry breaking is triggered by new strongly interacting dynamics at the TeV scale. We work in a concrete, predictive "discrete" **two site** prescription of the **Composite Higgs model** where the spontaneous breaking of the SO(5)/SO(4) coset and gives the Standard Model gauge bosons and six heavy...
