        Supporting Monte Carlo generators at the LHC 20m
        Working group meet on Tuesday 18th AM. The general support of Monte Carlo services for the LHC is currently delegated to LCG. The workshop offers an opportunity to re-evaluate some of the issues dealing with the development and maintenance of the Monte Carlo software relevant for both the experimental and the theoretical communities.

      CERN

      Because a number of interested people are here, we propose
      to have a session devoted to CLHEP. I'd like to clarify the
      status of CLHEP, find out who is using what parts, and
      discuss related topics.

      Show room on map

      We will use this workshop to (1) discuss issues regarding
      the use of jet algorithms at the parton, hadron and detector
      level, (2) review the experience at the Tevatron, and (3)
      try to arrive at some accords that will apply at the LHC.

      This meeting will use the Sky virtual room.
