In this publication the construction of an automatic algorithm to subtract infrared divergences in real QCD corrections through the Catani–Seymour dipole subtraction method [1,2] is reported. The resulting computer code has been implemented in the matrix element generator AMEGIC++ . This will allow for the automatic generation of dipole subtraction terms and their integrals over the one-parton emission phase space for any given process. If the virtual matrix element is provided as well, this then directly leads to an NLO QCD parton level event generator.
