With the parallel progress in pattern recognition algorithms and microelectronic technology, the design and performance of tracking detector is rooted in the solid interplay of hardware and software : sensors, readout and trigger electronics, online and offline reconstruction software. The main focus of the workshop is on pattern recognition and machine learning algorithms devoted to the reconstruction of particle tracks or jets in high energy physics experiments, and the hardware developments that enable them.
This 2017 edition is a merger of the Connecting The Dot series (see CTD2015 Berkeley, CTD2016 Vienna ) with the Workshop on Intelligent Tracker series (see WIT2010 Berkeley, WIT2012 Pisa, WIT2014 Penn).
The workshop is plenary sessions only, with a mix of invited talks and accepted contributions.
The final agenda is available. Speakers: please check already now you will be able to upload your talk by logging into indico. In case of trouble, or if you wish some modification to your talk details, please contact the email below.
A 2D tracking hackathon is organized Tuesday afternoon, for which a separate registration is necessary, please use "Hackathon registration" menu on the main indico page.
Wifi is available on site, eduroam credentials, from your institution or CERN, are recommended (but not mandatory).
The workshop is re-transmitted on Vidyo, see connection details on the full agenda.
