Taming the accuracy of event generators (Part 2)

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 04/10/2021 - 22:08

At the dawn of the precision era at the LHC, Monte Carlo Event 
Generators constitute the main bridge between theory and experiments. In 
this scenario, it becomes paramount to understand quantitatively the 
perturbative accuracy of the underlying algorithms in view of assessing 
precisely their theory uncertainty, and of formulating new methods to 
achieve higher perturbative accuracy in the simulations. In parallel, 
this theoretical progress crucially requires an efficient exploitation 
of modern computing technology to address the substantial CPU demand for 
event simulations at modern collider experiments. The goal of this 
workshop is to bring together leading experts in the field to analyse 
recent progress and encourage new collaborations to tackle the main open 
problems.
