Title: Physics with Jets in ATLAS: First Results and Prospects


The LHC has recently concluded its first successful run at the highest center-of-mass energy ever achieved in a collider. The high performance of both the collider and the experiments has set into motion ambitious physics programs that will shed light into some of the most important questions in particle physics. This talk will discuss the main 2010 physics measurements and searches for physics beyond the Standard Model with jets, stressing the importance of jets and the ineluctable subtleties of jet reconstruction and calibration in ATLAS. Some of the improvements in jet calibration and energy scale systematics currently under development for the 2011 analyses are also discussed, together with the prospects for jet physics in light of the 2011-2012 run.
