LHC@BNL: Joint Theory/Experiment Workshop on Early Physics at the LHC

Description
Understanding data from the LHC will require significant interactions between experimentalists and theorists. The LHC@BNL effort is aimed at facilitating these interactions and fostering future collaborations. A one-day workshop on March 16 will be focused on early (100 pb-1) physics at the LHC. The early physics will center around rediscovering the Standard Model: W's, Z's, tops, and jets. We plan a series of talks by both theorists and experimentalists focusing on the importance of early physics for understanding the LHC detectors and Monte Carlos, and as a basis for future discoveries. The day will have ample time for discussion. We particularly encourage New York area graduate students, post-docs, and faculty to attend. Organizing Committee Sally Dawson Hong Ma
