This is the third workshop in the LHC Olympics series. It is
hosted by the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at Santa Barbara,
and takes place on August 25th
and 26th, 2006, (just before the
String Phenomenology 2006
Conference at KITP).
The first two LHC Olympics workshops were held at CERN, Geneva in
July 2005 and
The LHC Olympics is a collective effort by theorists to familiarize themselves
with the language and formats used by experimentalists to present
data, and to train themselves in establishing a correspondence between
theoretical models and experimental signatures using collider simulation.
This is done by developing and
distributing user-friendly versions of existing simulation and data
analysis tools, and via a series of black box data exercises, in which
theorists are challenged to disentangle simulated LHC data sets. The LHCO
workshop aims to bring together experimenters, experts on MC tools,
and theorists with widely varying levels of expertise in collider
physics. The program consist of instructive talks by experts, discussion
sessions, and reports by
participants on their progress in deciphering the black box data sets.
