The scientific endeavour of the Large Hadron Collider experiments depends critically on the swift analysis of the data produced by the collider. A vital component of that analysis is the large-scale production of simulated collisions to be compared with the observed data. The production campaigns usually comprise tens of billions of simulated collisions, with each collision taking more than one minute to be fully simulated. Recent developments in deep learning techniques - generative models and graph networks - may allow to speed up that process. This project proposes an in-depth study of the suitability of those techniques for the simulation process, using the CMS detector as a benchmark scenario. (AU)
