 LHCb results in proton-nucleus collisions at the LHC / Mueller, Katharina (Universitaet Zuerich (CH)) The forward acceptance of the LHCb detector allows it to probe proton-ion collision in a unique kinematic range, complementary to the other LHC experiments. The production of $J/\Psi$ and $\Upsilon$-mesons decaying into two muons is studied at the LHCb experiment in proton-lead collisions at a proton-nucleon centre-of-mass energy $\sqrt {s_{NN}} = 5$ TeV.

 Central exclusive quarkonia production in the forward region at LHCb / Mueller, Katharina (Universitaet Zuerich (CH)) The LHCb detector and LHC running conditions are ideally suited to measure central exclusive production. Recent results of central exclusive production of $J/\Psi, \Psi (2S)$ and double charmonium are presented. [...] LHCb-PROC-2015-020; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2015-020.- Geneva : CERN, 2015 - 8.

 LHCb Topological Trigger Reoptimization / Likhomanenko, T (National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute, Moscow, Russia) ; Ilten, P (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, United States) ; Khairullin, E (Yandex School of Data Analysis, Moscow, Russia) ; Rogozhnikov, A (Yandex School of Data Analysis, Moscow, Russia) ; Ustyuzhanin, A (National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute, Moscow, Russia) ; Williams, M (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, United States) The main b-physics trigger algorithm used by the LHCb experiment is the so- called topological trigger. The topological trigger selects vertices which are a) detached from the primary proton-proton collision and b) compatible with coming from the decay of a b-hadron.

 SIMD studies in the LHCb reconstruction software / Campora Perez, D H (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; Couturier, B (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) During the data taking process in the LHC at CERN, millions of collisions are recorded every second by the LHCb Detector. The LHCb Online computing farm, counting around 15000 cores, is dedicated to the reconstruction of the events in real-time, in order to filter those with interesting Physics.

 How the Monte Carlo production of a wide variety of different samples is centrally handled in the LHCb experiment / Corti, G (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; Charpentier, Ph (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; Clemencic, M (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; Closier, J (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; Couturier, B (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; Kreps, M (Department of Physics, University of Warwick, Coventry, United Kingdom) ; Mathe, Z (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; O'Hanlon, D (Department of Physics, University of Warwick, Coventry, United Kingdom) ; Robbe, P (LAL, Université Paris-Sud, CNRS/IN2P3, Orsay, France) ; Romanovsky, V (Institute for High Energy Physics (IHEP), Protvino, Russia) et al. In the LHCb experiment a wide variety of Monte Carlo simulated samples needs to be produced for the experiment's physics program. Monte Carlo productions are handled centrally similarly to all massive processing of data in the experiment. [...] LHCb-PROC-2015-016; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2015-016.- Geneva : CERN, 2015 - 8 p.

 Jobs masonry in LHCb with elastic Grid Jobs / Stagni, F (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; Charpentier, Ph (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) In any distributed computing infrastructure, a job is normally forbidden to run for an indefinite amount of time. This limitation is implemented using different technologies, the most common one being the CPU time limit implemented by batch queues.

 Pilots 2.0: DIRAC pilots for all the skies / Stagni, F (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; Tsaregorodtsev, A (CPPM, Aix-Marseille Université, CNRS/IN2P3, Marseille, France) ; McNab, A (School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom) ; Luzzi, C (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) In the last few years, new types of computing infrastructures, such as IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service) and IAAC (Infrastructure as a Client), gained popularity. New resources may come as part of pledged resources, while others are opportunistic. [...] LHCb-PROC-2015-014; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2015-014.- Geneva : CERN, 2015 - 8 p.

 The LHCb Turbo Stream / Benson, Sean (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland,) ; Gligorov, Vladimir (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland,) ; Vesterinen, Mika Anton (Physikalisches Institut, Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany) ; Williams, John Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, United States) The LHCb experiment will record an unprecedented dataset of beauty and charm hadron decays during Run II of the LHC, set to take place between 2015 and 2018. A key computing challenge is to store and process this data, which limits the maximum output rate of the LHCb trigger. [...] LHCb-PROC-2015-013; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2015-013.- Geneva : CERN, 2015 - 8 p.

 Optimization of the LHCb track reconstruction / Storaci, Barbara (Physik-Institut, Universität Zürich, Zürich, Switzerland) The LHCb track reconstruction uses sophisticated pattern recognition algorithms to reconstruct trajectories of charged particles. Their main feature is the use of a Hough- transform like approach to connect track segments from different sub-detectors, allowing for having no tracking stations in the magnet of LHCb.
