The MCnet-LPCC school on Event Generators for LHC is the 6th school organized by MCnet. The school is aimed at doctoral students and young post docs and is intended to impart a deeper understanding of event-generator physics for both experimental and theoretical uses. It will be held at CERN from Jul 23 - Jul 27 2012. Lectures take place in the TH Auditorium (Building 4, top floor).

Topics:
  • Monte Carlo Methods (L. Lonnblad)
  • Event Generators (M. Seymour)
  • Jets (M. Cacciari)
  • Matching to Matrix Elements (S. Hoeche)
  • Monte Carlo for Higgs (C. Mariotti)
  • MC Uncertainties and Tuning (H. Schulz)
  • Monte Carlo modeling for Heavy Ions (A. Beraudo)
  • Beyond the Standard Model (G. Servant)
  • Rivet and Event-Generator Tutorials (D. Grellscheid & H. Hoeth)
