BsmJamboree2006 - Beyond the Standard Model CSC Notes Jamboree


We are organizing a Beyond the Standard Model CSC Notes Jamboree at the BNL ATLAS Analysis Support Center. The meeting will have a concerted focus on the SUSY and Exotics notes thanks to the participation of BSM experts (including North American CSC notes editors). The meeting will be an excellent opportunity for those engaged in this work to have in-depth discussions, plan and initiate new work, and to give a chance for new people to get involved.

Contact persons:

  • Kamal Benslama
  • Hong Ma
  • Frank Paige
  • Stephane Willocq

Dates and Agenda Outline

The dates for the Jamboree
Dec 18-20, 2006

We expect to cover at least the following CSC notes,

  • DiBoson final states
  • Lepton + Jets
  • Lepton + Missing Et
  • Dileptons + Diphotons
  • SUSY inclusive Search
  • Heavy Flavor background for SUSY

We expect most of the editors for these notes will participate in the Jamboree.

The agenda for the Jamboree can be found here
We expect to start with the status of the notes on Monday morning, end with a summary on Wednesday afternoon, with working sessions in between.

The participants are welcome to stay longer at BNL if they find it beneficial, but please check the availability of personnel you intend to interact with. We hope that this environment would provide an added benefit for bringing collaborators of similar physics interests to work together, not just at the Analysis Week, but thereafter as well.


The meeting will take place in BNL Physics Department, Building 510A, Room 2-160 for general meeting on Monday-Tuesday, and Room 2-84 for Wednesday, and additional space for breakout sessions in Room 1-105 and Room 1-113 in the same building, and a coffee lounge in Room 1-100.

Please refer to the BNL Map for directions to lab and the physics department.


We require a registration for the BSM Jamboree because space is limited, and we would like to know in advance the topics to be discussed. There is no registration fee, but please send e-mail to Hong Ma (hma@bnl.gov) with cc to Linda Feierabend (feierabe@bnl.gov), notifying your attendance. Please let us know the dates of your visit and if you hold a BNL guest appointment.

Attendees who already hold a valid BNL Guest Badge may come on site without notification to the main gate. Attendees who already have approved guest appointments, but not a Guest Badge will have to notify the BNL main gate of their arrival by checking in here. All others must apply for the BNL guest appointment by completing the Brookhaven's Guest Registration Form well in advance of the meeting. You will be notified when the guest appointment is approved. Obtaining a BNL computer account at USATLAS Tier-1 also requires an approved guest appointment. When you arrive at BNL with the approved guest appointment for the first time, you must stop at the security office by the main entrance where you will be issued a temporary pass, then proceed to the RHIC/AGS Users' Office to complete the check-in procedure.

NON-US citizens without BNL guest appointment should complete the registration form as soon as possible, since it takes additional time for the approval process, especially for people from sensitive countries.

BNL Visitor information is http://www.bnl.gov/bnlweb/userindex.html .

Computing Environment

We assume everyone will bring a laptop to work on, and has BNL computer account at the Tier-1.

Network connections, Wireless

All computers connected to BNL network need to be registered with the BNL ITD. When you first connect to the network, your web browser will be connected to a page to register your computer. Enter the appropriate information on the page (your Guest number is needed), re-start the network connection, you will then be connected.

The physics building has visitor wireless network, which is outside the BNL firewall. The name of the wireless access point is VWZ (Visitor Wireless Zone). A few wired connections (inside firewall) are available in rooms 2-84 and 1-105. You need to set http proxy in the web browser after registration, go to http://www.bnl.gov/cybersecurity/www.asp for instructions.

Tier-1 computer account.

If you have not logged onto your BNL account lately, you should be aware that using ssh private key is required. Follow this link

We have asked for ten more interactive nodes be made available during the Jamboree (acas0200 to acas0209). They are included in the pool of the interactive machines, so using "rterm" is sufficient.


On the acas farm, if you want to print, you should log on to atlas00.usatlas.bnl.gov. The printer queue is atlasdc, and the command is

lpr -Patlasdc filename
Either text file or ps file can be printed.

There is a printer on the visitor network for laptops which use wireless. The printer is in room 1-105 (next to the coffee lounge). To print from your laptop, you need to set up a printer queue on your laptop.

  • For windows, Goto Control Panel==> Add a Printer ==> A network printer ==> connect to a printer on internet, and use this url http://extnetreg.bnl.org:631/printers/phyconfrm.bnl.org .
  • For unix machine, the IP address for the printer is, and you should use CUPS to set up the printer queue.
