The Large Hadron Collider is the world’s largest and highest centerof- mass energy particle accelerator. During the Phase I operation it is expected that the LHC operated at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV will deliver to the CMS experiment total integrated luminosity of ~300 fb-1 till 2023. The High Luminosity LHC upgrade is expected to run at a centre-of-mass energy of 14 TeV and will allow ATLAS and CMS to collect integrated luminosities of the order of 300 fb-1 per year, and up to 3000 fb-1 during the HL-LHC projected lifetime of ten years. The large expected integrated luminosity enables the exploration of the multi-TeV scale by searches for particles with high masses as well as by investigation of processes with very low cross sections such as Flavor-Change Neutral Current interactions in top quark sector. In this report we present a proposal for the top quark FCNC searches at HL-LHC based on Monte-Carlo simulation of the upgraded CMS detector.
