Europe/Zurich timezone
The workshop will cover progress, issues and prospects of MC generators for the LHC, in view of recent experimental results and needs. In addition, progress in higher order physics processes needed for the next phase of LHC operations will be discussed.


Session chairs:

  • ATLAS: A. Buckley and T. Kuhl
  • CMS: P. Lenzi and S. Padhi
  • LPCC: M. Mangano

Two tutorials sessions on recent tools are foreseen for the mornings:
a) aMC@NLO on 19th Nov. : 09:00 - 12:30
Tutorial location: /afs/cern.ch/project/theory/LPCC_MC_Workshop/tutorial1
b) Sherpa + NLO on 20th Nov. : 09:00 - 12:30
Tutotial location: /afs/cern.ch/project/theory/LPCC_MC_Workshop/tutorial2

The afternoon sessions will be driven by a few talks, one theoretical and one experimental per session. They will cover topics such as the latest trends in NLO MC generators, treatment of heavy flavour production in the "matched" generators, underlying event tuning, future developments in electroweak radiations, rare decays in  LO and NLO level, generators with SUSY and EXO processes, etc.
