Conferences and Workshops 2020


13th International Workshop on Top Quark Physics (TOP 2020)

September 14-18 2020

The 13th International Workshop on Top Quark Physics (TOP 2020) will bring together experimentalists and theorists to present and discuss the latest developments in top-quark physics. This year's meeting will be an on-line conference with support provided by IPPP Durham. The programme includes a mini-workshop entitled "Jets in top physics: substructure, tagging and machine learning".

The conference is held on Zoom.

QCD@LHC - The 2020 edition

August 31 to September 3 2020

The overall goal of the workshop (via zoom) is to present and discuss the latest developments in experimental as well as theoretical studies in QCD which are (and/or will be) relevant for the LHC and to foster interactions between the communities.

Young Scientists Forum of the CRC

June 9, 17. and 23 2020

The Young Scientists Forum of our CRC TRR 257) is a series of remote seminars given by Ph.D. students and young Postocs from Aachen, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe and Siegen. It features short (12+3) presentations, preparing the speakers to talk about their research in front of a large audience.
