BIRS Workshop — Systematic Effects and Nuisance Parameters in Particle Physics Data Analyses
23 Apr 2023 - 28 Apr 2023 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Particle Physicists study matter at its smallest and most fundamental scale. The well-known proton, neutron and similar particles are composed of quarks. Atoms also contain electrons; together with the two heavier versions of the electron (the muon and tau), each with its associated neutrino, they make up the group of leptons. Another ingredient of the catalogue of particles is the Higgs Boson, discovered at the CERN Lab's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012. Experiments studying these and other particles require large accelerators and detectors: the circumference of the LHC is 27 km and one of the detectors to study the collisions is 25 meters high and 45 meters long. Building and running these machines is expensive, in terms of money and human effort. It is therefore important to use the best statistical techniques to extract the maximum amount of information from the hard-won data. This workshop brings together Statisticians and experimental Particle Physicists to discuss how best to achieve this.

Workshop — The Geometry, Algebra, and Physics of Higgs Bundles
28 May 2023 - 02 Jun 2023 • Kelowna, B.C., Canada
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) / UBCO
The workshop will tackle four of the main directions in which Higgs bundles have recently taken a leading role within the mathematics and physics communities, following the breakthroughs of the last years. Bringing together leaders in the area both in mathematics and physics, as well as young researchers in the subfields of the workshop, the meeting will present the ideal setting for novel discoveries and understanding of the uses that Higgs bundles and Hitchin systems may have.
