PHYSTAT Seminar: Accelerating Bayesian Computation: Parallelizing Markov Chain Monte Carlo / Caldwell, Allen (speaker) (Max-Planck-Institut fur Physik (DE))
A full-fledged Bayesian computation requries evaluation of the posterior probability density in the complete parameter space.  This can become very time consuming using commonly used algorithms such as Markov Chain Monte Carlos [...]

Microsoft DFS to CERNBox Home Directories migration / Smyrnakis, Apostolos (speaker) (CERN)
More and more people tend to work using different devices, sometimes remotely and/or under different operating systems. Also, everyday collaboration is becoming more and more needed across colleagues. CERNBox, the CERN’s cloud storage system can offer an easy and secure way to share files with colleagues, collaborate and backup your data in the (CERN) cloud while synchronizing your profile across all your devices. As the selected alternative for Microsoft DFS, CERNBox will host users’ personal profile providing them with more quota and making available to them the CERN cloud ecosystem.   For more information on this subject please read the CERN Bulletin article: “Change concerning Windows users: Home Directories will be transferred to CERNBox”

Life within Emacs: Git Magic / Kaklamanos, Georgios (speaker) (CERN)
Almost everyone is using git for version control (and if not they should be). Git's command line interface is amazing, however there are more efficient ways to use it. [...]

Probing early time dynamics and magnetic fields with the directed flow of light and heavy-flavour particles in ALICE / Dubla, Andrea (speaker) (GSI)
High energy heavy-ion collisions produce an extremely strong magnetic field, which is created at early times in the collision by the passage of the charged spectator protons from the incident nuclei. The strength of the field is estimate to be up to 10^15 Tesla at the initial collision time. [...]

Through your eyes: Reconstruct visual stimuli from EEG signals -- a Brainhack Geneva project / Samaras-Tsakiris, Konstantinos (speaker) (CERN)
Imagine wanting to fly an airplane, but finding current-gen VR lacking in control. Imagine holding a pen, but just not being skilled enough to draw the fine picture in your mind. This is a project about materializing your imagination. Brain-computer interfaces are gradually bridging the gap between human and computer, but to do so they need to understand brain signals. In this hackathon, we explored the reconstruction of what a person sees through DNN techniques, with EEG signals as input, working on state-of-the-art research. Come to hear what we tried!

PASSION EXTREME LIGHT / Mourou, Gerard (speaker) (Ecole Polytechnique - Palaiseau France)
Extreme-light laser is a universal source providing a vast range of high energy radiations and particles along with the highest field, highest pressure, temperature and acceleration.  It offers the possibility to shed light on some of the remaining unanswered questions in fundamental physics like the genesis of cosmic rays with energies in excess of 1020 eV or the loss of information in black-holes.  Using wake-field acceleration some of these fundamental questions could be studied in the laboratory. In addition extreme-light makes possible the study of the structure of vacuum and particle production in "empty" space which is one of the field’s ultimate goal, reaching into the fundamental QED and possibly QCD regimes. [...]

Fluidic Data: Demystifying the art in 5 minutes! / Sharma, Mayank (speaker) (CERN) ; Leduc, Julien (speaker) (CERN)
**Fluidic Data** is a floor-to-ceiling installation spanning 4 floors of CERN Data Center’s stairwell. It utilizes an interplay of light and water to visualize data flow from the 4 LHC experiments. [...]

Computing for the Next Generation / Oulevey, Thomas (speaker) (CERN) ; Kane, Natalie (speaker) (CERN)
Software Development and Computer Science are fields for the future, but when you speak to children they are often unfamiliar with some of the fundamentals; what is a program? what is code? what’s a website? At the same time, only a subset of our society is encouraged to play with toys and games that might develop interest or skills in such areas. Many of us participated in mentoring activities for children at the recent Open Days - we will share some experiences from the weekend and talk about other opportunities in the Geneva area [...]
