Basic concept is to have three half-day sessions for newcomers and oldcomers - both students and more experienced people. Two of the three sessions will be overview talks/discussions; the third is a visit to the P5 site.
Main presenters and discussion leaders should be the CMS Management, Subsystem Managers and Coordinators. Presentations should be simple, focus on CMS-specifics and include pointers to more information.

Overview of CMS objectives, “CMS detector design drivers” and “major decisions”, present detector - including magnet, results so far. Also include management structure (systems, coordination areas), role of the CB, decision-making process, long-term plan (including upgrades in Phase I and Phase II). Brief intro to LHC operations inc. lumi measurements and safety aspects (BRiL)
Overview of particle tracking using the pixels + tracker + muon detectors, including descriptions of each detector, alignment loop, project organizations, people. Needs input from AlCa, TK/MUON POG. Example results of performance - vertex location precision, pT resolution, 2-track separation, muon id efficiency, muon trigger efficiency etc. as functions of pileup (# vertices). Longevity & upgrades.

Overview of offline workflows for the preparation of the data for publications. The talk covers topics in the area of Offline, Physics Performance and Datasets (PPD and Computing: prompt reconstruction and Prompt Calibration Loop, Datasets,
Data distribution and Tier structure of our computing, CMS software (CMSSW), Validation and Data Quality Monitoring, MC Production, Alignment & Calibrations, Data Certification, Luminosity bookkeeping.
Overview of organization, publications workflows and related committees: publication committee, statistics committee, etc. CMS specifics like particle flow, analysis release, how to access the data and summary of main aspects of CMS data analysis school will also be given. The physics analysis objectives for 2015 and beyond, based on Run1 results, will be summarized.
Overview of CMS schools (data analysis, upgrade etc). code of conduct, computing rules, communication aspects (hypernews, egroups, meetings, WGM), CMSSW practicalities, the .cms network. Expectations from being a member of CMS (EPR, shifts, authorship). Secretariat (CMS and user’s office), conferences (CINCO, rules for assigning points, priorities, how/who can nominate), publications (CMS Notes of all types, journal publications etc.), CMS guiding
