BOOST 2020 is the twelfth conference of a series of successful joint theory/experiment workshops that bring together the world's leading experts from theory and LHC experiments. Our aim are lively discussions about the latest progress in this field and the exchange of expertise to generate new ideas, in order develop new approaches on the reconstruction and use of boosted decay topologies in particle physics and beyond.

Due to international travel restrictions, the BOOST workshop will be carried out in a special online format in July 2020. A one-week series of web seminars is planned with two seminars and a poster discussion session per day. We call for abstracts for a poster session with more details on the call for abstracts page.

The next in-person workshop in Hamburg is foreseen in 2021.

The BOOST conference series cover the following topics:

  • Phenomenology and searches using jet substructure
  • New jet substructure observables and algorithms
  • QCD measurements and modeling
  • Jet reconstruction performance
  • Machine learning
  • Pileup mitigation
  • Heavy-ion collisions
  • Future colliders

On July 16-17 (just before BOOST starts), there will be a satellite mini-workshop on anomaly detection: LHC Summer Olympics 2020.
