We invite you to a workshop focusing on the future of jet substructure algorithms and their use in physics analyses, to be held at the Fermilab LHC Physics Center over a 2-day period from November 30 - December 1, 2016.
The first day of this 2-day workshop will bring experimentalists and theorists together to discuss the latest developments in the field of jet substructure, and to plan experimental measurements which can provide important feedback to the theory community. We will discuss effects such as parton shower modeling, pileup mitigation methods, and their effects on substructure algorithm performance in data and simulation. During the second day of the workshop we will hold a CMS-only session. We would like to take stock of the current efforts for substructure validation and application to 2017 Moriond analyses, including the performance and optimization of triggers and algorithms, background methods, and jet calibrations. We hope to also plan for future studies of new substructure algorithms and measurements using CMS datasets.
We hope you will join us at Fermilab for this exciting and important workshop at the end of November.
