Topologies for Early LHC Searches

I will discuss a new proposal for framing and parametrizing new-physics searches, and the results of the "Workshop on Topologies for Early LHC Searches" at SLAC in late September 2010.  The aim of that workshop ( was to develop a list of event topologies representative of the range of new physics possibilities that could appear at the LHC. . We are presently compiling summaries of 'simplified models' that generate each event-topology of interest, including Monte Carlo implementations, kinematic variables of interest, and suggested parametrizations of search results (
