Gravitational Waves: The Present and the Future / van den Brand, Jo (speaker) (NIKHEF, Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
Gravitational waves detection and measurements, the discovery of which was announced to the world in 2016, is a fast moving field. Several events have been detected in LIGO and LIGO+VIRGO, and in spectacular coincidence with gamma ray burst detectors. [...]

Evolutionary Psychology Lecture 1: Willpower: Self-Control, Decision Fatigue, and Energy Depletion / Baumeister, Roy (speaker) (University of Queensland, St. Lucia, Australia)
A new understanding of how people control themselves has emerged from the past decade of research studies. Self-control depends on a limited energy supply, and each person’s willpower fluctuates during the day as various events deplete and then replenish it [...]

Evolutionary Psychology Lecture 2: Thinking about the Future: Whether, When, Why, How, Who, What ... and So What? / Baumeister, Roy (speaker) (University of Queensland, St. Lucia, Australia)
A planful, future-oriented mindset is probably the most effective way to find success in life, but psychology has focused much more on the past than the future. This talk reports ideas and findings emerging from our recent research program on thinking about the future. [...]

Speeding up Scientific Codes in HPC Architectures by Code Modernization: Lessons Learned / Garcia, José M. (speaker) (University of Murcia, Spain)
The computational resources required in scientific research for key areas, such as medicine, physics, bioinformatics or climate modelling, are continuously increasing every year. To meet this demand, high-performance computing (HPC) systems keep growing in scale and complexity. [...]

Flavour Physics: Old problems, recent hopes and challenges” / Isidori, Gino (speaker) (University of Zürich, Zürich, Switzerland)
These lectures provide an introduction to flavour physics, with special emphasis on the subject of Lepton Flavour Universality (LFU). We review in particular the present hints  of LFU in B decays, discussing their reliability from a theoretical point of view, their phenomenological interest, and how they fit in the general search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Future prospects in this field, in view of higher statistics and new experiments, and the connections  with high-pT physics, will also be discussed

Mathematical Modeling of Real World Processes / Wagner, Barbara (speaker) (Weistrass Institute, Berlin, Germany)
From the formation of galaxies to the evolution of the human cell mathematics aims to uncover the underlying abstract structures as an idealized model of reality on all spatial and time scales. Even earlier than writing, mathematics helped to organise and shape the world around us, such as keeping track of life stock, or the seasons to find food or grow crop, and nowadays penetrates each and every part of our lifes. In this talk I will illustrate i) how a mathematical model is conceived as an idealized structure that ii) is amenable to mathematical solutions and iii) allows a physical interpretation that can be validated against an experiment. I will discuss the importance of each step and address the challenges that needs to be overcome to arrive at a viable mathematical model..
