Please note that the Wednesday sessions are ATLAS UK meetings with attendance limited to ATLAS members and interested theorists.
Buffet lunch at IPPP or served lunch at Collingwood College?
With the exception of the dedicated NLO talk, the talks in this session are not meant as advertisement talks for the tools (the NLO talk will of course support the idea that NLO is better than LO!).
Instead they should center around the assessment of uncertainties in the approaches, for example:
- dependence on merging systematics (for the LO merging)
- dependence on different treatment of higher-order terms (for the NLO matching)
- scale choices and uncertainties
- treatment of error-pdfs
- dependence on underlying event and other soft stuff
Although the reserved slots are 20 minutes each, something more like 2-3 slides per generator are anticipated.
Proposal: Spanish Tapas place opposite the Victoria Pub.
