## Current revision

The Tools/MC Group spans both Les Houches sessions. To minimize confusion, each session has been assigned its own wiki page;

# Tentative Proceedings Table of Content (120p total)

We have assembled the combined document in this repository. If you would like direct access to this repository, please see the instructions on the link. If you prefer to work independently, that's fine, just use the templates properly and mail your contributions to the conveners.
