Theory Experiment 2010

Theory Experiment Interplay at the LHC Workshop


8 - 9 April 2010
Royal Holloway, University of London

This workshop is dedicated to the memory of Thomas Binoth.

This joint IPPP-NExT workshop with ATLAS and CMS participation will facilitate an update and the continuation of the activities of the SM and NLO Multi-Leg Working Group of the Physics at TeV Colliders Workshop 2009 in Les Houches.  It will complement the Perturbative higher-order effects at work at the LHC Workshop at CERN in June/July 2010 by focusing on the themes of the Observables and Higgs Phenomenology subgroups.

Covered topics will include identifying/analysing observables of interest (e.g. with reduced systematic uncertainty) that can be measured very precisely in early LHC running and an update on experimental and theoretical systematics for Higgs searches as well as data-driven estimation and validation methods with focus on how they can benefit analyses while LHC data is still limited.
