The Game of Flavours workshop will be held at the Inter-University Center in Dubrovnik, from today to May 3rd, and it will gather 50 researchers active in experiments at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
The aim of the workshop is to discuss and exchange experiences on the latest developments in the identification techniques of the so-called heavy quarks, which is among the known particles of the highest mass matter. These particles play an important role in the precise determination of the properties of the newly discovered Higgs boson (Nobel Prize in Physics 2013) and in search of new particles. New developments that will be the focus of the workshop are based on new and better particle detectors, but also on the increasing use of the so-called machine learning or artificial intelligence. Theoretical physicists, as well as experts in the field of artificial intelligence will contribute to the workshops.
Researchers from the Ruder Boskovic Institute who are actively involved in CERN research are responsible for the local organization of the workshops in cooperation with the IUC. The workshop was organized under the Croatian Science Foundation project.
