EST timezone
As a follow-up to the DS@LHC2015 (http://indico.cern.ch/event/395374/) we are organizing a hands-on workshop/hackshop on Data Science in High Energy Physics at the Simons Foundation in NY on July 5-7 2016. The workshop will bring together computer/data scientists and physicists and we expect to formulate new ideas and solutions for a variety of detection and physics analysis challenges. We will work on focus topics such as tracking, calorimetry, anomaly detection and newly emerging paradigms in machine learning (such as density ratio estimation) and try to stay close to challenges that involve the raw data. Given queries for remote participation the final program will be modified during the weekend of July 2 to accommodate remote participation. Please stay tuned and check back for updates on Monday.
