We present a search for high-mass dielectron resonances produced by pp collisions at a center-ofmass energy of 7 TeV, using an integrated luminosity of ∼1 fb −1 recorded by the ATLAS detector in 2011. The reconstructed invariant mass spectrum is compared to Standard Model expectations. Possible signals include decays of heavy neutral spin-1 gauge bosons and the Randall-Sundrum graviton. In the absence of a signal we set exclusion limits for various models using a Bayesian approach.
