Standard Model Benchmarks at the Tevatron and LHC

November 19 - 20, 2010

11/24/2010: Fermilab Today article about the Benchmarks Workshop

A link to the workshop poster is here...

Hosted by: The CTEQ Collaboration, the LHC Physics Centers @ CERN, DESY, & FERMILAB & the ATLAS Physics Analysis Center @ ANL

The workshop will consist of four half-day sessions dealing with

  1. The underlying event and minimum bias
  2. W and Z production
  3. Photon and jet production
  4. Heavy quark production

The workshop structure will allow for lively discussion between Tevatron and LHC experimentalists and phenomenologists on precision predictions and comparisons of data to these standard model cross sections. More information and registration is at:
