Description

The 2019 MCnet Summer School on Event-Generator Physics and Techniques will be held at Cumberland Lodge, located in Windsor Great Park (about an hour from Central London), with arrival on Monday (morning) July 29th and departure on Friday (afternoon) August 2nd 2019.

The school provides a five day course of training in the physics and techniques used in modern Monte Carlo event generators via a series of lectures, practical sessions, and discussions with event-generator authors. The school is aimed at advanced doctoral students and early-career postdocs.

Our core sessions comprise a series of introductory lectures on the physics of event generators, further lectures on a wider range of associated topics, a series of hands-on tutorials using all of the MCnet event generators for LHC physics, and evening discussion sessions with Monte Carlo authors. The full list of lectures is:

  • Introduction to Event Generators - Stefan Gieseke (Karlsruhe)
  • Measurements and Monte Carlo - Emily Nurse (UCL)
  • From Lagrangians to Events - Céline Degrande (UCLouvain)
  • Matching and Merging - Stefan Prestel (Lund)
  • Precision MC for the HL-LHC and beyond  - Jonas Lindert (IPPP Durham), Simone Amoroso (DESY)
  • Computational Challenges - Elizabeth Sexton-Kennedy, Holger Schultz (Fermilab)
  • Industrial Applications - Michael König (Blue Yonder)
