 Physics benchmarks of the VELO upgrade / Eklund, Lars (University of Glasgow (GB)) The LHCb Experiment at the LHC is successfully performing precision measurements primarily in the area of flavour physics. The collaboration is preparing an upgrade that will start taking data in 2021 with a trigger-less readout at five times the current luminosity.

 Search for new physics in semileptonic $B$-decays / Klaver, Suzanne (University of Manchester (GB)) Semileptonic decays provide an excellent environment for testing the Standard Model (SM). Violation of lepton universality would be a smoking gun for physics beyond the SM. [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-030; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-030.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 6.

 Novel real-time alignment and calibration of LHCb detector for Run II and tracking for the upgrade. / Quagliani, Renato (Universite de Paris-Sud 11 (FR)) LHCb has introduced a novel real-time detector alignment and calibration strategy for LHC Run II. Data collected at the start of the fill is processed in a few minutes and used to update the alignment, while the calibration constants are evaluated for each run.

 LHCb results on $C\!P$ violation in $B^0_{(s)}$ mixing and in the interference with decays / Seyfert, Paul (Universita & INFN, Milano-Bicocca (IT)) Measurements of $C\!P$ violation in neutral $B$ meson mixing and in the interference with decays are excellent probes to search for physics beyond the Standard Model. A selection of recent measurements performed by the LHCb experiment using the full Run I dataset is presented. [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-028; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-028.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 6.

 Rare leptonic and semileptonic $b$-hadron decays and tests of lepton flavour universality at LHCb / Bifani, Simone (University of Birmingham (GB)) Rare decays of heavy-flavoured particles provide an ideal laboratory to look for deviations from the Standard Model, and explore energy regimes beyond the LHC reach. Decays proceeding via electroweak penguin diagrams are excellent probes to search for New Physics, and $b \to s \ell^+ \ell^-$ processes are particularly interesting since they give access to many observables such as branching fractions, asymmetries and angular observables.

 Test of lepton flavour universality at LHCb / Lionetto, Federica (Universitaet Zuerich (CH)) This contribution presents the $R_D{\ast}$ and $R_K$ measurements, which are a clean probe of lepton flavour universality, and the angular analyses of the $B^0 \to K^\ast {0} \mu^+ \mu^-$ and $B^0 \to K^\ast{0} ~e^+ e^-$ decays, which allow to search for New Physics in rare decays proceeding through ${\text a} ~b \to s \ell^+ \ell^-$ transition. All measurements have been performed by the LHCb collaboration using the full statistics of LHC Run I. [...] LHCb-PROC-2016-026; CERN-LHCb-PROC-2016-026.- Geneva : CERN, 2016 - 6.

 LHCb results on multi-parton interactions, soft QCD and diffraction / Kucharczyk, Marcin (Polish Academy of Sciences (PL)) Due to its unique pseudorapidity coverage ($2 < \eta < 5$) and excellent performance, the LHCb detector allows for studying soft QCD processes at large rapidities and low transverse momenta. Selected results, such as charged particle multiplicities and densities, forward energy flow and prompt charm production are briefly summarized in these proceedings.

 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..
