Exploring improvements to the LHCb ELOG electronic logbook / Leung, Philip (CERN) ; Neufeld, Niko (CERN)
ELOG, the electronic logbook used by LHCb, has been suffering from poor accessibility and slow performance. Investigating revealed that a combination of inefficient searches, caused mainly by frequent reads of files stored in NFS, and an inability for the server to handle concurrent operations were rendering the service unusable for up to a minute when users performed search or sort operations.

A tool for $\gamma/\pi^0$ separation at high energies / Calvo Gomez, Miriam (University of Barcelona (ES)) ; Cogneras, Eric (Univ. Blaise Pascal Clermont-Fe. II (FR)) ; Deschamps, Olivier (Univ. Blaise Pascal Clermont-Fe. II (FR)) ; Hoballah, Mostafa (Univ. Blaise Pascal Clermont-Fe. II (FR)) ; Lefevre, Regis (Univ. Blaise Pascal Clermont-Fe. II (FR)) ; Monteil, Stephane (Univ. Blaise Pascal Clermont-Fe. II (FR)) ; Puig Navarro, Albert (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (CH)) ; Rives Molina, Vicente Jose (University of Barcelona (ES))
This note describes a tool developed to distinguish between photons and neutral pions that are reconstructed as a single cluster in the LHCb ECAL. The separation is achieved by using the fact that electromagnetic clusters produced by these two kinds of particles have different shape [...]

Testbeam studies of pre-prototype silicon strip sensors for the LHCb UT upgrade project / Abba, Andrea (INFN, Milan) ; Artuso, Marina (Syracuse U.) ; Blusk, Steven (Syracuse U.) ; Britton, Thomas (Syracuse U.) ; Davis, Adam (Cincinnati U.) ; Dendek, Adam (AGH-UST, Cracow) ; Dey, Biplab (INFN, Milan) ; Ely, Scott (Syracuse U.) ; Fu, Jinlin (INFN, Milan) ; Gandini, Paolo (Oxford U.) et al.
The LHCb experiment is preparing for a major upgrade in 2018-2019. One of the key components in the upgrade is a new silicon tracker situated upstream of the analysis magnet of the experiment. [...]

Analysis of the performance of GEM chambers for the upgrade of the LHCb muon system / Pinci, Davide (Sezione INFN di Roma La Sapienza, Roma, Italy) ; Santimaria, Marco (Sezione INFN di Roma La Sapienza, Roma, Italy)
Triple-GEM chambers, so far used in the inner region of the M1 muon station, are the ideal candidates to replace the MWPCs in the regions where, after the upgrade, the particle rate will be as high as 2 MHz/cm$^2$. Testing the triple-GEM efficiency and time resolution with different gaseous mixtures is therefore a significant step in evaluating the expected performance of the muon system after the upgrade scheduled in 2018, when the luminosity in LHCb will reach $2 \times 10^{33}$ cm$^2$ s$^{-1}$.

Study of the performance of the MWPC single gap / Pinci, Davide (Sezione INFN di Roma La Sapienza, Roma, Italy)
In this note we report the results of measurements performed with cosmic rays on single gaps of different LHCb Muon Chambers. Their main performance have been investigated in order to achieve a better comprehension of their behavior for optimizing the chamber working conditions..

A set-up to measure the optical attenuation length of scintillating fibres / Alfieri, C (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) ; Rodrigues Cavalcante, A B (Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas (CBPF), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) ; Joram, C (CERN, Geneva, Switzerland)
The optical attenuation length of a scintillating fibre characterizes the quality of light transport through the fibre. It relates directly to the quantity of detectable light at the readout end of the fibre. [...]
