Computing Technology for Physics Research
In this talk we pragmatically address some general aspects about massive data access in the HEP environment, starting to focus on the relationships that lie among the characteristics of the available technologies and the data access strategies which are consequently possible. Moreover, the upcoming evolutions in the computing performance available also at the personal level will likely pose...

Data Analysis - Algorithms and Tools
The LHC was built as a discovery machine, whether for a Higgs Boson or Supersymmetry. In this review talk we will concentrate on the methods used in the HEP community to test hypotheses. We will cover via a comparative study, from the LEP hybrid "CLs" method and the Bayesian TEVATRON exclusion techniques to the LHC frequentist discovery techniques. We will explain how to read all ...

Methodology of Computations in Theoretical Physics
In the last years, much progress has been made in the computation of one-loop virtual matrix elements for processes involving many external particles. I this talk I will show the importance of NLO-accuracy computations for phenomenologically relevant processes and review the recent progress that will make their automated computation tractable and their inclusion in Monte Carlo tools possible.
