BOOST 2018 is the tenth of a series of successful joint theory/experiment workshops that bring together the world's leading experts from theory and LHC experiments to discuss the latest progress and develop new approaches on the reconstruction of and use of boosted decay topologies in order to search for new physics.
This year, the conference is hosted in Paris, on the Jussieu campus of Sorbonne Université, and it will mark the tenth anniversary of the BDRS paper that bootstrapped the boosted jets field. The talks will take place in the Charpak amphitheater located on the campus.
The conference will cover the following topics:
- Searches using jet substructure
- New jet substructure algorithms
- Measurements and modelling
- First-principles calculations
- Machine learning
- Pileup mitigation
- Heavy-ion collisions
- Future colliders
