 Results of heavy ion collisions at LHCb / Zhang, Yanxi (Laboratoire de l'Accelerateur Lineaire (FR)) Heavy flavor production is important in heavy ion collisions to study both cold and hot nuclear matter effects. The LHCb experiment can make unique contribution to heavy ion physics, owing to the full particle identification of the detector in the forward region and the ability to collect fixed target data with proton or lead beams.

 CP violation in b-hadrons / Benson, Sean (Nikhef National institute for subatomic physics (NL)) Latest LHCb measurements of $CP$ violation in b-hadrons are presented based on $pp$ collision data collected in 2011 and 2012 at centre-of-mass energies of $\sqrt{s}=7$ $\rm TeV$ and $8\ \rm TeV$ respectively. The total integrated luminosity collected is 3.0 fb$^{-1}$.

 Determination of the $CP$-violating phase $\phi_s$ in $B0s \to J\psi \Phi$ decays / Batozskaya, Varvara (National Centre for Nuclear Research (PL)) The determination of the CP-violating phase $\phi_{s}$ in $B^{0}_{s}\rightarrow J/\psi \phi$ decays is one of the key goals of the LHCb experiment. Its value is predicted to be very small in the Standard Model [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-010; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-010.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 7.

 LHCb’s Real-Time Alignment in Run II / Batozskaya, Varvara (National Centre for Nuclear Research (PL)) The LHCb collaboration has introduced a novel real-time detector alignment and calibration strategy for LHC Run II. The data collected at the start of the fill will be processed in a few minutes and used to update the alignment, while the calibration constants will be evaluated for each run [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-009; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-009.- Geneva : CERN, 2015 - 6.

 Novel real-time alignment and calibration of the LHCb detector in Run II / Xu, Zhirui (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (CH)) ; Tobin, Mark (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (CH)) An automatic real-time alignment and calibration strategy of the LHCb detector was developed for the Run II. Thanks to the online calibration, tighter event selection criteria can be used in the trigger. [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-007; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-007.- Geneva : CERN, 2015 - 2.

 Electroweak penguin B decays / Nikodem, Thomas (Ruprecht-Karls-Universitaet Heidelberg (DE)) Flavour Changing Neutral Currents (FCNC) are sensitive probes for physics beyond the Standard Model (SM), so-called New Physics. An example of a FCNC is the $b \to s$ quark transition described by the electroweak penguin Feynman diagram shown in Figure 1.

 Preparation and commissioning of LHCb for the Run II of LHC / Puig Navarro, Albert (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (CH)) The LHCb experiment has performed very well during the Run I of the LHC, producing a large number of relevant physics results on a wide range of topics. The preparation and commissioning of the LHCb experiment for Run II is discussed here, with special emphasis on the changes in the trigger strategy and the addition of a new subdetector to improve the physics reach of the experiment.

 The LHCb Turbo stream / Puig Navarro, Albert (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (CH)) 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-2016-004; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-004.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 2.
