Description

The Pythia event generator has seen a lot of progress relating to modeling heavy ion collisions, in the parton-level stacking framework known as Angantyr. Several of the ideas behind Angantyr are, however, not local to Pythia, and it is therefore possible to implement them in a generator independent way.
We present the initial version of such an implementation, which essentially allows for input from all three main generators. As this has been suggested as a topic for this years MCnet summer school tutorials, we show some suggestions to how such a tutorial can be organized, and invite for discussion.
