Call for 2023 "Theory meets Experiments" School Proposals.
The Galileo Galilei Institute for Theoretical Physics organizes and hosts 5 PhD schools on different domains of theoretical physics. Due to the importance of the interaction between the theoretical and experimental communities, we propose a new school which aims at providing lectures covering basic topics from a theoretical as well as experimental point of view on a proposed argument. This additional school will be 1-week long (20-24 November 2023) and will be attended by PhD students selected among the theoretical and experimental communities.
The student selection will be done by the Organizing Committee of the school which will coordinate the scientific activity, propose the lecturers and decide about seminars and topical discussions. As for the other GGI schools, students, lecturers and organisers will have a desk available and will fully enjoy the GGI facilities. Typically a GGI school hosts about 50 students.
This call is opened to collect proposals for this first edition of the "Theory meets Experiments" (TmE) PhD school. There are several hot topics in the physics of fundamental interactions which are suitable for a synergetic approach joining theory and experiments.
Proposals for the 2023 TmE school should be submitted by May, 31 2023.
Spring School on Machine Learning for High Energy Physics 2023.
this is the first announcement of the Spring School on Machine Learning for High Energy Physics 2023. This year it will be held in Erice, Italy, on April 11-18, 2023. It targets PhD students and early-stage career postdocs primarily. Advanced Master's students are also encouraged to apply. The school is organised by INFN and Practicum.
The primary goal of the MLHEP school is a focused introduction to applied modern machine learning techniques that could improve physics performance for various HEP-related problems. The school pays attention to the student experience, so along with "hands-on" seminars, a dedicated data science competition will be organised.
Additionally, the school will include a series of talks that show real examples of improvements for particular physics cases due to machine learning techniques. It is ideally suited for advanced graduate students and young postdocs willing to learn how to:
- formulate HEP-related problems in machine learning-friendly terms;
- select quality criteria for a given problem;
- understand and apply principles of widely-used classification models (e.g., boosting, bagging, BDT, neural networks, etc.) to practical cases;
- optimise features and parameters of the given model in an efficient way under given restrictions;
- select the best classifier implementation amongst a variety of ML libraries (scikit-learn, catboost, deep learning libraries, etc.);
- understand and apply principles of generative model design;
- define and conduct reproducible data-driven experiments.
Registration is open until the 28th of Feb 2023. .
Spring School COMPLEX NETWORKS: THEORY, METHODS, AND APPLICATIONS (7th edition)
Complex networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications (7th edition) Villa del Grumello, Como, Italy, May 22-26, 2023
Many real systems can be modeled as networks, where the elements of the system are nodes and interactions between elements are edges. An even larger set of systems can be modeled using dynamical processes on networks, which are in turn affected by the dynamics. Networks thus represent the backbone of many complex systems, and their theoretical and computational analysis makes it possible to gain insights into numerous applications. Networks permeate almost every conceivable discipline —including sociology, transportation, economics and finance, biology, and myriad others — and the study of “network science” has thus become a crucial component of modern scientific education.
The school “Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications” offers a succinct education in network science. It is open to all aspiring scholars in any area of science or engineering who wish to study networks of any kind (whether theoretical or applied), and it is especially addressed to doctoral students and young postdoctoral scholars. The aim of the school is to deepen into both theoretical developments and applications in targeted fields.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: February 26, 2023.
INFN - SESAME International School on EFFICIENT SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING - ESC@SESAME 2023
Registration is open for the first edition of the
INFN - SESAME International School on EFFICIENT SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING - ESC@SESAME 2023 jointly organized by National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) and the International Centre For Synchrotron-Light For Experimental Science And Applications In The Middle East (SESAME).
The school stems from the experience gained over 15 years with the ESC School in Bertinoto (Italy) and aims to offer participants from countries in the Middle East and the Mediterranean Region a unique and convenient opportunity to improve their skills in the development of scientific computing applications.
The School is hosted by the SESAME Center, located 30 km northwest of Amman, Jordan. SESAME is a laboratory with a third-generation Synchrotron Light Source, the result of a collaboration between countries in the Middle East and neighboring regions, developed under the auspices of UNESCO. It constitutes the first major international center of excellence in the region and it is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities suitable for hosting conferences and schools.
The School is particularly aimed therefore at PhD students, post-docs and young researchers from the SESAME member states (Cyprus, Egypt, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Pakistan, Palestine, and Türkiye), reverberating the founding purpose of SESAME to strengthen collaboration for the advancement of science.
The program offers introductory lectures on current trends in the evolution of processor architectures and in parallel programming. This is followed by more in-depth lectures on advanced programming with C++, efficient memory usage, floating-point computation, and programming in a heterogeneous environment, exploiting the potential of multi-threading computing, GPUs, and computation on MPI clusters.
A good familiarity with the basic concepts of C++ programming is the only requirement to participate in the school.
Lectures will be alternated with hands-on exercises, providing an opportunity to immediately apply the knowledge learned and interact with lecturers, tutors and other students.
Additional useful information on the School's program can be found on the school's website, where a registration form is also available:
The deadline for registration is March 15, 2023.

International Workshop "Muon4Future"
The workshop will be held in Venice at Palazzo Franchetti, Istituto Veneto on May 29-31, 2023.
INFN-Sezione di Padova is organizing the international Workshop "Muon4Future" that will be held in Venice at Palazzo Franchetti, Istituto Veneto on May 29-31, 2023.
The Muon4Future workshop aims to start a discussion that, for the first time, compares the results of the muon-based experiments, involving both the experimental and theoretical communities. Such a comparison is indispensable today since many of the discrepancies between the Standard Model and the measurements are concentrated in the muon sector. The purpose of the workshop is not only limited to examining the experiments currently carried out in data taking or already approved and/or under construction, but it also aims at discussing possible future proposals. The goal is to identify the most promising physics experiments and measurements that would allow to further test the Standard Model and search for new physics, comparing new ideas, relevant issues and related challenges.
