Description

We discuss prospects for SUSY searches in all-hadronic events in the CMS experiment with exclusive jet reconstruction. Due to their generic nature, these signatures are expected to be amongst the most sensitive to many SUSY models, but they are also very challenging. Several methods for data-driven background determinations are presented, along with results from tests on early 7 TeV data samples. These studies allow us to start to probe the behavior of the QCD background, and to study its kinematic properties with respect to several discriminating variables used in SUSY searches.
