CMSDAS is designed to help CMS physicists from across the collaboration to learn, or to learn more, about CMS analysis and thereby to participate in significant ways in any physics analysis including future discoveries. It enables physicists beginning analysis to easily join an ongoing analysis in a productive way. Since 2012, our first global year, schools were held at FNAL, Pisa, Taipei, DESY, and Kolkata. More than 400 CMS students have now participated in the program. The format for each CMSDAS is very similar and some of the same facilitators attend each school.
A few key components of the CMSDAS School are required “homework”, assigned to registrants prior to attending the school and the sessions during the workshop whicl emphasize "hands on" work with CMS data. Each school starts with a morning devoted to inspirational plenary talks. The essential features of the school are the execution of a series of short and long exercises.
Prior to the school, attendees are required to complete a list of pre-exercises in order to be able to tackle more realistic problems at the tutorial sessions. There include for example, introducing CMSSW, DBS, fitting, etc. which ensures a fast start at the event.
The short exercises (several hours duration) cover all of the objects from jets to muons and many techniques from event generators to setting upper limits occur during the first half of the school. In the second half of the school detailed physics measurements are performed with the CMS data set (the long exercises) in a 2.5 day intensive period by focused teams of about 6-8 students. Both the short and long exercises are designed and facilitated by teams of 2-3 CMS experts. Some long exercises go beyond the current state of the art of the corresponding CMS analysis. Thus providing opportunities to get plugged in to a CMS measurement through a long exercise at the school and become a part of the CMS measurement team on the paper.
