We describe QUAERO, a method that (i) enables the automatic optimization of searches for physics beyond the standard model, and (ii) provides a mechanism for making high energy collider data generally available. We apply QUAERO to searches for standard model WW, ZZ, and tt¯ production, to searches for these objects produced through a new heavy resonance, and to the first direct search for W′ → WZ. Through this interface, we make three data sets collected by the D0 experiment at √s = 1.8 TeV publicly available.
