Northwest Terascale Research Projects:
Using jet substructure to find new physics at the LHC
The small size and informal nature of this workskhop allows us to revise the schedule as we go. Thus the information listed below is subject to change.
We will meet in the Institute of Theoretical Science conference room on Monday, then in the Center for High Energy Physics conference room on Tuesday through Friday. Starting on Tuesday afternoon, the Institute of Theoretical Science conference room will be available at most times for discussions among subgroups of us.
