This is to be a small, informal workshop between the LHCb collaboration and interested theorists. It follows similar meetings held 10-11 Nov. 2011, 16-18 April 2012 (which resulted in a paper published in EPJ C 73 (2013) 2373) and 14-16 Oct. 2013.
The purpose of the meeting is to consider the latest results from LHCb, discuss possible interpretations and identify important channels and observables to test leading theoretical frameworks in the near future of LHCb data-taking.
The meeting will be arranged in four main streams, listed below along with the relevant conveners:
- CPV in B decays (with highlights gamma, phi_s and charmless B decays): Jennifer Girrbach, Sneha Malde, Fernando Rodrigues
- Rare B decays (Mostly b->sll family) : Sebastian Jäger, Fatima Soomro, Kostas Petridis
- New physics searches in charm, tau and kaon decays: Andreas Crivellin, Francesco Dettori, Angelo di Canto
- Forward electroweak physics, including pA: Juan Rojo, Zhenwei Yang, Simone Bifani
All interested theorists are welcome to participate, and are encouraged to register at the workshop INDICO page (there is no registration fee). To express interest in giving a presentation, please contact the conveners of the relevant stream. Unfortunately, to allow informal discussion, we must restrict the participation to exclude members of competing experiments.
Each participant should arrange their own accommodation (e.g. at the CERN hostel). For any administrative matters (e.g. concerning external access to CERN), please contact the LHCb Secretariat.
For general matters, please contact the organising committee:
John Ellis, Tim Gershon, Gino Isidori, Patrick Koppenburg, Gilad Perez, Frederic Teubert, Vincenzo Vagnoni, Andreas Weiler
