Welcome to Tools 2012!
NEWS! With the support of the Oskar Klein Centre, Stockholm University, The Swedish Research Council, Enigmass and LAPTH we are happy to announce that we have decided to reduce the workshop fee to 0 SEK.
The program for the workshop is available by the link Timetable in the left-hand menu. You can also click here for a direct link.
The aim of the workshop is to review the main calculational tools, such as generators and Monte Carlos, for searches of the New Physics at present and future colliders as well as in non-collider physics experiments such as dark-matter searches. Issues and codes pertaining to the background will also be covered. Ultimately, the goal is a first comparison of all such tools with real data from the LHC and elsewhere.
The workshop is structured around (i) a series of talks (with and without software demo), (ii) tutorials, and (iii) round-table discussions. The talks give an overview of available tools, the tutorials convey hands-on information of the main packages, and in the round-table discussions we hope to discuss how the existing programs could be improved, how to incorporate different existing constraints, how to best present future data, and how modules from different codes could be sewn together and interchanged.
We plan to have the following themes:
The program will consist of both invited talks, contributed talks, tutorials and round table discussions.
