Description
This a meeting to discuss the treatment of parton shower uncertainties in LHC Higgs Cross Section Working Group 1, following up on discussions at the December 2018 workshop (https://indico.cern.ch/event/740110/timetable/#20181211, Tuesday morning, “PS systematics”). The goal of this meeting is to raise the profile of such activities, discuss ongoing studies and expertise within each subgroup, and identify areas of shared interest across all WG1 subgroups.
