With the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) providing pp collisions data at √ s = 7 TeV, plans are already advancing for a series of upgrades leading eventually to about 5 × 10 34 cm −2 s −1 some ten years from now in the super-LHC (sLHC) project. The goal is to extend the dataset from about few hundreds fb −1 expected by 2020 to few thousands fb −1 by around 2030. High instantaneous and integrated luminosities are the challenge that will require many changes to the ATLAS detector. The designs are
