    I don't know how to put it in a context, I've heard things like "production of flat Monte carlos" etc...

    Sounds like slang, and google hits are as good as non-existent.
    Flat in some distribution (pileup?)?
    Flat in terms of file format (no hierarchy of particles)?
    No event weights?
