LHC Lumi Days
503-1-001 - Council Chamber
The aim of this workshop will be to review the results of the first luminosity calibration measurements at the LHC and to stimulate a discussion on future measurements. A total accuracy of around 5% seems achievable with the current instrumentation, on relatively short term. The need for and the challenges associated with a more precise determination will be debated. The importance of knowing the cross section scale to a given precision will be reviewed. Direct luminosity calibration methods will be compared to indirect methods, including recent experience at other cyclical colliders. Physics motivations, systematic uncertainties, proposals for optimal running conditions for future luminosity calibration experiments, etc., will be openly discussed.
