ZOOM: For logged-in indico users, the Zoom Details are under "Videoconference". Alternatively, an email has been sent out to all attendees with Subject "Zoom Details for LHCb Starterkit 2022".


The Starterkit is a five day event in which you will learn the basics to analyse LHCb data. It is a fully hands-on workshop and will take place in hybrid mode, both on ZOOM and at CERN. Demonstrators will be available during the lessons to offer individual help (whether in person or with breakout rooms on Zoom). 

Join the Mattermost channel to ask questions!

The first part of the Starterkit will be an introduction to the tools you'll use day to day during your PhD, including Bash, Git, snakemake and Python.

The second part will focus on LHCb specific software, tasks and questions. The source material is already partially available on the first analysis steps site.



Attendees should make sure to follow the course prerequisites before attending the workshop and fill out the pre-training survey.

Until the workshop, new members to LHCb are invited to follow the content at the analysis-essentials and first-analysis-steps sites.


Teachers & Helpers!

We have now finalised the teachers leading the sessions, if you are able to help out in a session either in-person/online please assign yourself to a session on the Helpers Organisation Spreadsheet (a link is provided on an email to the lhcb community with subject "[Helpers Needed!] Helpers for LHCb Starterkit 2022").

There is an open survey.
