LHC working groups

The LHC working groups provide a common forum for discussion among the LHC experiments and the theoretical physicists. Their goals include:

  • to propose common standards for the interpretation and representation of the LHC results
  • to discuss common systematics, e.g. those arising from the use of theory tools
  • to combine/average LHC results
  • to facilitate the validation and tuning of MC tools
  • LHC working groups are established by common agreement among the LHC experiments and the LPCC, from suggestions of the LHC experiments’ physics coordinators
  • Their members include experimental conveners, proposed by the experiments, and experts from the experiments and from the theory community.
