Workshop on Efficient Computing for High Energy Physics (ECHEP)

The Efficient Computing for High Energy Physics (ECHEP) project is funded by STFC's opportunities call. The aim of the project is to enable the UK HEP community to contribute to harnessing modern computing architectures and improve software and computing efficiency. This will directly address the HL-LHC computing problem. Please ...

Cluster Algebras and the Geometry of Scattering Amplitudes

The aim of this meeting is to bring together physicists and mathematicians who are interested in the connections between cluster algebras and the geometry of scattering amplitudes. This is intended to facilitate increased interaction and collaboration between these fields, and to provide an avenue for the articulation of interesting and ...

Fundamentals of Growing Active Matter

A wide variety of physical properties of living systems arise from interplay between activity and growth. These include pattern formation in bacterial colonies, ordering in actin networks and the emergence of resistance in tumours. The workshop's main goal is to gather together researchers working on different systems and using ...

yt User and Developer Workshop

The yt project is an open-source, community driven Python package for analyzing large, complex geometric and spatial datasets. Originally designed for astrophysical simulations, yt has expanded into a number of other domains with spatial analysis needs, including the geosciences, medical imaging, nuclear and plasma physics, and seismology. This week-long workshop ...

Celestial Sphere: holography, CFT and amplitudes

This workshop will explore and establish connections between flat space holography, conformal field theory and scattering amplitudes. Newly discovered structures relating these three areas have arisen in the context of the 'celestial sphere,' the space of generators for the null conformal boundary of an asymptotically flat space-time. It is hoped ...
