Blindstore is a database that ensures confidentiality of information retrieval. I'll cover what Private Information Retrieval is, how it is different from current privacy schemes and how the magic happens.

During the last two years, CERNs Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and most of its equipment systems were upgraded to collide particles at an energy level twice higher compared to previous operational limits. System upgrades and the increased machine energy pose new challenges for the analysis of transient data recordings, which have to be both dependable and fast. With the LHC having operated for...

During the short presentation i would like to highlight the importance of Continuous Delivery processes which facilitate software development. As i have only 5-10 minutes, it will have a form of a simple story from software developer life. Official abstract for "1st developers @ CERN": The TE-MPE-MS Software team is a small group of people responsible for developing software for machine...

Often we have a dataset where most of the data is produced by a known mechanism (or several mechanisms) which we understand, but some data is produced by a different process. In such cases we can consider the known processes as background to detect the signal. However, what about the case where we do not have knowledge about the underlying processes, but want to detect which part of our...

Timepix is a hybrid pixel semiconductor detector of the Medipix family, derived from the pixel detector developments at CERN and originally designed for X-ray imaging. This presentation makes an illustrative look at the current applications of these detector from medicine to outer space, and back to particle physics' experiments.
73. A proposal for a C++ framework for writing highly-readable code with automatic multi-level paralelism
Jiří Vyskočil (Czech Technical University in Prague)
Using C++ template metaprogramming and assumptions about typical workloads in plasma physics computing, a framework if proposed to facilitate writing massively parallel programs in C++ in such a way, that the code written by the user closely resembles wahtever would be seen in a paper, while the framework effectively hides the implementation details of the parallelization structures. The ideas...

We are going to have a small trip through the simple ideas of finding patterns in graphs, what a community means, define complex systems and then wonder ourselves on what emergence means for us.
