Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

The efficient identification of jets from bottom quarks (b-jets) is one of the most important techniques for many physics analyses at the Large Hadron Collider, including studies of the Higgs boson, the top quark, and searches beyond the Standard Model. The performance is characterized by b-tagging efficiency (probability to identify a b-jet as such) and the mistag rate (probability to mistakenly accept a non-b-jet).The mistag occurs as a result of finite detector resolution, presence of long-lived particles, and material interactions. As these effects can be different between the experimental data and Monte Carlo (MC) simulation, it is important to measure the b-tagging performance in data and derive the MC correction factors. I will describe various methods to measure the performance of b jet identification in pp collisions at √ s = 13 TeV with the ATLAS detector and will report on Direct Tag method which is recently developed in the ATLAS collaboration for Light jet calibration.
