Fuks Benjamin I wish to work on new developments for FeynRules, especially regarding the implementation of supersymmetric theories. I would like to dedicate time to the implementation of the gravitation superfield and an automatic derivation of the RGEs for any SUSY theory (in the prospects of a spectrum generator generator). In addition, I would like to use the full chain "Model > FeynRules > Matrix element generators > parton showering > hadronisation > detector simulation" to work on specific pheno SUSY projects with the people attending the meeting. I would like to emphasize that I wish to focus on beyond the MSSM models, not only on the widely studied MSSM, and try to devise a strategy search in order to disentangle different SUSY theories in the case of a SUSY-like discovery at the LHC.

Harper Sam I'm an experimentalist currently working on searches at CMS involving high pt electrons. As such I'm very interested in early data model independent searches, both in interpreting limits model independently and distinguishing between models should any signal be found. I also have a soft spot for alternatives to EWK symmetry breaking, having done some work on technicolor in the last Les Houches workshop and in my thesis.

Sekmen Sezen BSM: In general, BSM interpretation of the first few fb-1 LHC data. - Application of Bayesian techniques (in particular, the referece prıors) to the solution of multi-parameter problems, which are central in new physics, especially SUSY searches - Inference on SUSY dark matter using the eary LHC data. - Using the 3rd generation in new physics searches Tools: - With the start of LHC, interest in interpreting the LHC results in terms of BSM physics by both theorısts and experımentalists grows. Les Houches is a good opportunity to discuss standard requirements for such projects. One such requirement is a common repository of an ınclusive set of SM background events. This project was initiated in Les Houches 2009, and it could be continued in 2011. Another necessity is a fast generic detector simulator. The recently developed Delphes is a very promissing candidate. Thorough studies could be performed on this tool such that it is in a position to be blessed officially by ATLAS and CMS as a tool that can represent the simulation of these detectors
Shepherd-themistocleous Claire Leading various analyses in CMS in Exotics searches. Z', Quantum Black Holes, Boosted Zeds, Hidden Valley signatures. Interested in simulation issues, interpretation of observations in LHC data, novel signatures. By the time of Les Houches we should have significant data from the LHC. Interested in exploring the inferences we will be able to make.
