Abstract

The discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC is one of the greatest scientific achievements this centuries.   Still, despite the anticipation, no unambiguous signal of physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics has been observed at colliders or at experiments that search for dark matter, to date.   In this talk I will review the current theoretical and experimental state of particle physics, in light of dark matter experiments and the LHC results.  I will then discuss the near future plans in the field and shortly speculate on the various possible outcomes and their implications to particle physics.
