Regional Hadronic Final State Forum Workshop
April 8-10, 2009
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Menlo Park, California
Venue: Kavli Auditorium
This meeting is organized by the US ATLAS Hadronic Final State Forum and SLAC. It is open to all ATLAS collaborators. This is a follow up on similar meetings held at the University of Victoria in December 2005, and SLAC in March 2007 and January 2008. The structure of the meeting is informal, with an emphasis on small working groups looking at various aspects of hadronic final state reconstruction important for the first collision data expected for ATLAS in fall 2009.
The tentative program includes guided discussion sessions with short introductions to general jet, missing Et, tau and b-jet reconstruction in ATLAS. These are followed by working sessions on selected topics of common interest. Exchange and informal discussions are encouraged. The workshop is concluded by a summary discussion session. Participants are invited to express their interest in possible working topics before and during the workshop.
