This is a continuation of the First MC4BSM Workshop,
held at Fermilab on March 20-21, 2006. The aim is
to bring together theorists and experimentalists interested in developing and using Monte Carlo
tools for Beyond the Standard Model Physics.
Since a large number of excellent tools already exist for the study of low energy
supersymmetry and the MSSM in particular, the MC4BSM workshops are focusing on tools for alternative
TeV-scale physics models.
Note that this meeting is held in conjunction with the "LHC Olympics" and the Physics at the LHC workshop, also taking place at Princeton, March 21-24, 2007. There is joint registration for all three meetings.
The main goal of this second MC4BSM workshop is to produce concrete results in the form of Monte Carlo packages for new, non-SUSY physics models. The format of the workshop will evolve from that of the first meeting. To maximize efficiency and productivity, there will be less emphasis on the survey of models and general introductions. Instead, now more time will be devoted to the presentation of actual implementations of new models in the Monte Carlos, as follows:
