​Possible tasks:  

(Some of these are already underway)​​.  Participants should feel free to suggest and refine tasks, and to coordinate with others.​

  • Implement and test time distribution in generators
  • Energy resolution studies
  • ​Develop gamma tagging algoritms, brems vs deexcitations
  • Implement angular distribution
  • Implement NC, nuebar cross sections in generator
  • Use realistic photon sim info to improve resolution, define photon efficiency requirements
  • Create smearing file for Snowglobes based on new sims
  • Background simulation improvement, cosmogenics vs radiologicals​
