 Charm CPV and rare decays at LHCb / Morello, Michael Joseph (Scuola Normale Superiore & INFN (IT)) Charm physics has been playing all along a role in particle physics, by contributing to the for-mulation of the Standard Model (SM) as it is known nowadays. The level of attention on it has tremendously increased in recent years because of the first experimental observations of the slow mixing rate of the $D^0 − \overline{D}^0$ flavour oscillations, providing definitely a full range of probes, entirely complementary to the $B$ and $K$ mesons, for mixing and $CP$- violation.

 CPV in beauty decays with LHCb / Meier, Frank (Technische Universitaet Dortmund (DE)) During 2011 and 2012, $pp$ collision data corresponding to integrated luminosities of 1fb$^{-1}$ at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV and 2fb$^{-1}$ at 8 TeV have been collected with the LHCb detector. This dataset has allowed LHCb to measure with unprecedented precision observables relating to the CKM unitary triangles. [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-023; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-023.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 10.

 Rare decays of flavoured mesons at the LHC / Puig Navarro, Albert (Universitaet Zuerich (CH)) In absence of strong, direct signs of New Physics at the LHC, rare decays of heavy flavoured hadrons constitute an ideal laboratory for indirectly exploring energies beyond those of the LHC in order to look for deviations from the Standard Model. The main results regarding flavour changing neutral current transitions obtained at the LHC are presented here, with particular emphasis put on $b \to s$ transitions, in which tensions with the Standard Model have been observed..

 Full offline reconstruction in real-time with the LHCb detector / Dziurda, Agnieszka (CERN) This document describes the novel, unique in High Energy Physics, real-time alignment and calibration of the full LHCb detector. The LHCb experiment has been designed as a dedicated heavy flavour physics experiment focused on the reconstruction of c and b hadrons.

 LHCb Run 2 Trigger Performance / Sciascia, Barbara (Istituto Nazionale Fisica Nucleare Frascati (IT)) During the first long shutdown of the LHC (2013-2014, LS1), the LHCb detector remained essentially unchanged, while the trigger system has been completely revisited. Upgrades to the LHCb computing infrastructure have allowed for high quality decay information to be calculated by the software trigger making a separate offline event reconstruction unnecessary [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-020; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-020.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 7.

 Machine learning and parallelism in the reconstruction of LHCb and its upgrade / De Cian, Michel (Ruprecht-Karls-Universitaet Heidelberg (DE)) The LHCb detector at the LHC is a general purpose detector in the forward region with a focus on reconstructing decays of c- and b-hadrons. For Run II of the LHC, a new trigger strategy with a real-time reconstruction, alignment and calibration was employed. [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-019; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-019.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 10.

 B decays to open charm / Haines, Susan Carol (University of Cambridge (GB)) Studies of $B$ meson decays to states involving open charm mesons in data recorded by the LHCb experiment have resulted in first observations of several new decay modes, including $B_s^{0} \rightarrow D_s^{*\mp} K^{\pm}$, $B_s^{0} \rightarrow \overline{D}^{0} K_S^{0}$ and $B^{+} \rightarrow D^{+} K^{+} \pi^{-}$ decays. An upper limit has been placed on the branching fraction of $B_s^{0} \rightarrow \overline{D}^{0} f_0(980)$ decays. [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-017; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-017.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 6.

 Multibody charmless b-hadron decays / Dujany, Giulio (University of Manchester (GB)) Multibody charmless b-hadron decays are a unique laboratory to probe CP violation, to look for effects of new physics and to provide insights into the hadronisation mechanism. The decay modes $\Lambda_b^0 \to \Lambda K^+ K^-$, $\Lambda_b^0 \to \Lambda K^+ \pi^-$, $\Lambda_b^0 \to \Lambda \phi$ and $B_s^0 \to K_{\rm S}^0 K^*$ are observed for the first time by LHCb and their branching fractions are measured.

 Timing and Readout Contorl in the LHCb Upgraded Readout System / Alessio, Federico (CERN) In 2019, the LHCb experiment at CERN will undergo a major upgrade where its detectors electronics and entire readout system will be changed to read-out events at the full LHC rate of 40 MHz. In this paper, the new timing, trigger and readout control system for such upgrade is reviewed [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-015; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-015.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 In : 20th IEEE-NPSS Real Time Conference, Padua, Italy, 5 - 10 Jun 2016
