Parallel Beyond the Standard Model Beyond the Standard Model

Vector like quarks appear in many theories beyond the Standard Model as a way to cancel the mass divergence for the Higgs boson.  The current status of the ATLAS searches for the production of vector like quarks will be reviewed for proton-proton collisions at 13 TeV.  This presentation will address the analysis techniques, in particular the selection criteria, the background modeling and the related experimental uncertainties.  The results and the complementarity of the various searches will be discussed.
