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)

NOTE: All page assignments are VERY tentative. Please expect and/or do not get extremely upset when/if you end up being asked to reduce by a page or so.

NOTE 2: The order is also very tentative. Probably, contributions will be included in the order received, so submit early to get front page.

NOTE 3: We will assemble 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.
