Random Decision Forests on Apache Spark / White, Tom (speaker) (Cloudera)
Apache Spark continues to gain momentum as the new processing paradigm for Apache Hadoop, and for the data scientist, it has a lot to like: natively distributed, REPL, Python APIs in addition to native Scala, and a library of machine learning algorithms, MLlib. Spark includes an implementation of random decision forests, an important and popular ensemble classifier/regressor algorithm. This talk will introduce Spark and random decision forests to the curious, and demonstrate the process of analyzing a real-world data set with them. [...]

Conformal bootstrap: non-perturbative QFT's under siege / Vichi, Alessandro (speaker) (CERN)
[Exceptionally in Council Chamber] Originally formulated in the 70's, the conformal bootstrap is the ambitious idea that one can use internal consistency conditions to carve out, and eventually solve, the space of conformal field theories. In this talk I will review recent developments in the field which have boosted this program to a new level. [...]

A Bayesian approach to particle identification in ALICE / Antonioli, Pietro (speaker) (Universita e INFN, Bologna (IT))
Among the LHC experiments, ALICE has unique particle identification (PID) capabilities exploiting different types of detectors. During Run 1, a Bayesian approach to PID was developed and intensively tested. [...]

Observation of a new Bs π state / Drutskoy, Alexey (speaker) (Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow)
We report the observation of a narrow structure, X(5568), in the decay sequence X(5568) → Bs π±, Bs → J/ψ ϕ, J/ψ → μ+μ−, ϕ → K+K−. This is the first observation of a hadronic state with valence quarks of four different flavors. [...]

HEP technologies to address medical imaging challenges / Lecoq, Paul Rene Michel (speaker)
Developments in detector technologies aimed at solving challenges in present and future CERN experiments, particularly at the LHC, have triggered exceptional advances in the performance of medical imaging devices, allowing for a spectacular progress in in-vivo molecular imaging procedures, which are opening the way for tailored therapies of major diseases. This talk will briefly review the recent history of this prime example of technology transfer from HEP experiments to society, will describe the technical challenges being addressed by some ongoing projects, and will present a few new ideas for further developments and their foreseeable impact..
