FASER Physics Coordination

This page is work in progress Work in progress, under construction


The coordination of the physics activities within FASER are overseen by the Physics Coordination (PC) Team, currently consisting of Carl Gwilliam, Eric Torrence and Aki Ariga.


The PC is responsible for ensuring a timely and high-quality physics output of the experiment. The role includes organising the higher-level structure of the relevant activities, and making sure that human resources are effectively distributed across these activities (avoiding too much duplication of work, and making sure all necessary tasks are covered). These activities do not only include the direct physics analysis, but also the data quality, detector performance (including calibration and alignment), background studies, which need to be organised in collaboration with the relevant detector system1. The PC ensures that the physics output of the experiment is of high-quality and follows best scientific practices, including requiring that the analysis is reproducible and well documented. The PC must liase closely with the offline software group, providing input on the detector reconstruction and simulation in terms of including new features and defining the timescale for samples to be available for physics and performance studies. The PC and the offline software PL will share the responsibility for the physics analysis software and analysis level software tools. The PC, in conjunction with the EB, will be responsible for the procedures for the internal review of physics results before they are released, and the review of the final physics papers. Finally, the PC together with the rest of the EB will be involved in assigning FASER conference talks.

Dedicated physics meetings take place every other Wednesday at 16:00 CERN time, alternating with the Test Beam meeting, can can be found on indico


Descriptions of available monte carlo samples can be found on the FaserMC page.


Monte Carlo campaign for 2022 analyses.

Mock Data Challenge

The Mock Data Challenge (MDC) is designed to test the production chain from generation all the way through to analysis so as to ensure readiness for data taking.

  • Information about the MDC items, including high priority areas, and who is working on these can be found in the google doc
  • Discussions can be had on the Mattermost channel
  • Results should be uploaded to the Livepage and presented in the bi-weekly meeting (see above)
