Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 616)


We discuss the status of the LHC machine, review the progress on the construction of the CMS experiment and the expected performance of CMS in Higgs and SUSY searches, with the expected mass reach for the various MSSM Higgses and sparticles, and some aspects of sparticle mass reconstruction.
