The 17th MCnet school will be held CERN.

The school provides a five day course of training in the physics and techniques used in modern Monte Carlo event generators via a series of lectures, practical sessions, and discussions with event-generator authors. The school is aimed at advanced doctoral students and early-career postdocs.

Our core sessions comprise a series of introductory lectures on the physics of event generators, further lectures on a wider range of associated topics, a series of hands-on tutorials using all of the MCnet event generators for LHC physics, and evening discussion sessions with Monte Carlo authors.

The full list of lectures is:

  • Introduction to Event Generators - Michael Seymour (Manchester)
  • Parton Showers, Matching and Merging - Marek Schönherr (Durham)
  • Aspects of the EW Standard Model - Alessandro Vicini (INFN Milano)
  • Model-Independent Measurements - Monica Dunford (Heidelberg)
  • Event Generators for Heavy Ion Collisions - Korinna Zapp (Lund)
  • Machine Learning and MC Event Generators - Manuel Szewc (Cincinnati)
  • Software Sustainability - Caterina Doglioni (Manchester)
  • Journey to Industry - Joanna Huang (Faculty AI)
  • Diversity and Inclusion in HEP - CERN Diversity and Inclusion Programme

Tutorials:

  • Computing on GPUs - Enrico Bothmann (Göttingen)
  • Herwig7 - Stefan Kiebacher (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology)
  • Pythia8 - Christian Bierlich (Lund)
  • Sherpa - Max Knobbe (Göttingen), Peter Meinzinger (Durham)
  • MadGraph5+Rivet+Contur - NN
