France-Berkeley PHYSTAT Conference on Unfolding

Anja Butter (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (FR)), Ben Nachman (Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. (US)), Lydia Brenner (Nikhef National institute for subatomic physics (NL))

A central task in differential cross section measurements in particle-, nuclear-, and astrophysics is unfolding: the removal of detector distortions, also called deblurring or deconvolution.  Unfolding is a challenging inverse, simulation-based inference task.  

The goal of this conference is to bring together method developers and practioners to discuss the state-of-the-art in unfolding.  One key aspect of the conference will be machine learning-based unfolding methods, which have enabled new possibilities (e.g. unbinned and high-dimensional measurements).

The conference will be held at the LPNHE in Paris from June 10 - 13, 2024. Please note that you have to access the campus at the exit of the metro station Jussieu.

Amphithéâtre Georges Charpak · 75005 Paris, France

There will be a zoom connection for remote participation as well.
