Dear all,

The first fall SUSYBSM meeting will be take place on September 6, Tuesday, at 40-s2-a01, vrvs venus modification passwd: sept6-susybsm

Please let us know if you will be presenting on Sept 6 asap.

For the PTDR analyses that have not sent a summary please do so. We have an uncommitted draft of the SUSYBSM session with the contributions of ~ 10 analyses. We shall commit when we have the rest of the preliminary contributions in, and preferably before/around the September 6 meeting.

Please go through the users guide and send us the .tex and figures contributions.

* Note on SUSYBSM definitions: Please use the susybsm definitions from the global definitions file. /ptdr2/general/ptdr-definitions.tex If there are definitions you need that don't exist there, please send them to us so that we incorporate them.

* Note on references: - find the paper in SPIRES - click on the entry BibTeX from which you can copy the reference

* Note on Figures and Tables: - Table captios go ABOVE the tables - Figure captions go BELOW the figures - For figures use PDF format. The acceptable way to convert EPS files to PDF files is using epstopdf, as described in the TDR guidelines: Keep in mind that some later versions of PDF (e.g. 1.5) will conflict with the pdflatex machinery on lxplus. Try to build your section only and check that figures are inserted properly before sending to us.

When we have a first quasi-homogenious edited version of the contributions and commit it to CVS, you will start from the committed version of your file and edit on that. We will send technical details on this (including individual commit privileges) at a later time. Please keep for your records a dated version of what you send to us.

We will also post the table with the systematics to be studied per analysis in the SUSYBSM page and send an announcement. In the meantime please don't forget to check the theoretical systematics guide and

The detector systematics guidelines are due very soon from the detector-PRS and we shall communicate them to you as soon as we have them.

Please don't forget to put some time on the 0.1fb-1 and 1 fb-1 luminosity benchmarks. It is important to think on what we can do with the first data.

For announcements, news and bug fixes relevant to SUSYBSM, please be checking

(includes the fix for GenJets in 8_7_4 and pileup in FAMOS instructions)

with great appreciation for all your hard work towards the PTDR and best regards,

Luc, Maria.

p.s. * Length, content guidelines *

The draft of the contribution means the summary of the analysis and results. The summary should be a summary, i.e. not what you copy and paste for the analysis note (simultaneously or later). Instead a short (~3 pages) comprehensive, executive, compact, to-the-point summary of the results. For example describe your final signature and state within which model it appears but don't explain the standard model, supersymmetry, technicolor or string theory and general relativity, please. (In specific analyses that might not be included in the chapter's global theory introduction we will ask the authors to include the description themselves) Similarly for the detector, algorithms, objects, variables, etc. : state which detector elements and algorithms are important for your analysis but don't rewrite Volume I -- taking a look at PTDR Volume I you will know what to reference. Some overlap will be unavoidable but we should try to keep it under control from the early stages. Think of it as a short letter or rapid communication that contains the following discussion:

what is you final state signature (objects)

what is the backgrounds (SM or SM+SUSY, fakes etc )

what is the CMKIN selections

what are the x-sections for signal and background

what is the trigger path L1 all the way to HLT and corresponding trigger efficiency

what backgrounds will be measured from data and with what kind of uncertainties

what is the offline selection requirements and efficiencies

what is the major signal systematics

for 0.1 and 1 fb-1 what is the major startup systematics
