Rare B decays in 2015 - experiment and theory

11.05.2015 to 13.05.2015
Roman Zwicky, Kostas Petridis, Greig Cowan, Matt Needham

Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics

Key Speakers:
Blake (LHCb), Patel (LHCb), Bevan (Atlas), Ishikawa (Belle) & theorists

This workshop aims to bring  together the people who are active in rare B decays from the theoretical as well as experimental side. Particular focus is given on the exclusive decays B->K(*)ll and Bs->phi ll, Bs->phi gamma. It is the goal to discuss the new 3fb^-1 data from LHCb (as well as Atlas and CMS). Members of the Belle collaboraton will also be present.
