        Hands on collider tools - jets and boosted objects (1h) 1h
        Speaker: Gregory Soyez (IPhT, CEA Saclay)

        The material for the tutorial can be downloaded here:

           http://www.lpthe.jussieu.fr/~soyez/data/2017-Corfu-WW-tutorial.tar.gz

        Once you have unpacked it, there are instructions either in the README file or in the fastjet-WW-tutorial.pdf file. Prior to the hand-on session you might want to install fastjet (easier to do it in the same directory) following the instructions from

          http://fastjet.fr/quickstart.html

        The tutorial requires events file which I will circulate on a USB stick. If the internet connection is good enough, you can also get them by executing the "get-event-files.sh" script in the event-files directory

        Speaker: Pat Scott (Imperial College London)

        Here is the link for downloading GAMBIT: 
        http://www.hepforge.org/archive/gambit/gambit-1.0.1.tar.gz

        In the README.md file there is a list of other packages that are needed 
        to install and run GAMBIT. I've pasted the list below for convenience. 
        It's mostly standard packages, but I suspect not everyone will have will 
        have packages like Eigen, yaml and hdf5 installed.

        -------------------

        GAMBIT is built using the CMake system. The following libraries and 
        packages must be installed prior to configuration:

        COMPULSORY:

          - gcc/gfortran 4.7.1 or greater, or icc/ifort 12.1.0 or greater
          - Python 2.7 or greater (Python 3 is not supported)
          - Python modules: yaml, os, re, datetime, sys, getopt, shutil and 
        itertools.
          - Boost 1.41 or greater
          - GNU Scientific Library (GSL) 1.10 or greater
          - Eigen 3.1.0 or greater
          - LAPACK
          - PKG Config

        OPTIONAL:

          - the h5py python module (for use of the hdf5 printer)
          - MPI (required for parallel sampling)
          - axel (speeds up downloads of backends and scanners)
          - graphviz (required for model hierarchy and dependency tree plots)
          - HDF5 (for use of the hdf5 printer)
          - ROOT (required for the Delphes detector simulation, or the GreAT 
        scanner from ScannerBit)

        Whizard (25'+5') 30m
        Speaker: Jürgen Reuter (DESY Hamburg, Germany)
        This is a Docker image. It can be downloaded from here: http://whizard.hepforge.org/tutorials/tutorial-2017/
        (either gzipped oder bzip2ed)

        In that folder there is also an explanation how to install and use docker. You basically load the docker image to be downloaded, and then
        you have something like a virtual machine.
      • 12:00
        PySecDec (25' + 5') 30m
        Speaker: Stephan Jahn (MPI)

        All important information about (py)SecDec is linked from our web page:

        http://secdec.hepforge.org/


        Installation instructions are available in the manual:

        http://secdec.readthedocs.io/en/stable/installation.html


        An introduction to the basic usage is provided in the manual:

        http://secdec.readthedocs.io/en/stable/gettingstarted.html

        The distribution tarballs come with a variety of examples. All examples

        are listed on the bottom of the "Getting Started" section in the manual.

        Additional information and a more extensive discussion of the examples

        can also be found in our paper [1703.09692] (submitted to CPC).


        Feel free to send feedback, suggestions, or bug reports to our mailing list:
