-- coffee --
11.00-12.35 Experimental framework and MC implementation
11.00-11.45 Experimental framework: cross-sections, backgrounds, triggers, acceptance etc., J-R Hansen/NBI
11.45-12.30 Implementation of new physics in PYTHIA, T. Sjöstrand/Lund
-- lunch --
14.00-15.30 Past case studies: analysis tools
14.00-14.25 SUSY MSSM/GMSB studies in ATLAS: variables, cuts, typical backgrounds etc., J. Sjölin/Stockholm

14.50-15.30 Higgs and SUSY studies in CMS, R. Kinnunen/Helsinki
15.30-19.00 Brainstorming session
   This will be based on ideas and tools presented here. For each topic, summarize
   We foresee to be able to discuss the topics one after another, so that all can participate. The discussion will be lead by a theorist and an experimentalist.
