This school will introduce details of Monte Carlo event generation. Basic lectures cover the wide range of physics behind the commonly used multi-purpose event generator programs. In line with today's quest for higher precision there are special lectures about next-to-leading order calculations and their matching and merging with parton shower programs. Practical hands-on tutorial sessions will show the use and application of the popular event generators for the example of Higgs production with a special emphasis on systematic uncertainties.
