Precise luminosity calibration at bunched-beam hadron colliders like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is critical to determine fundamental parameters of the standard model and to discover or constrain beyond-the-standard-model phenomena. The results of luminosity determination at LHC interaction point 5 with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector, using proton-proton (pp) collisions in 2018, is reported. The calibration is derived by analyzing the data of the van der Meer (vdM) scan program. The total uncertainty is 2.5% (similar to previous years) and is dominated by the contributions due to the x-y factorization assumption and luminometer linearity.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
