Hammers & Nails 2022
Machine Learning Meets Astro & Particle Physics
Dates: August 3rd - August 11th, 2022 | Location: Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel
Following the success of the 2017 and 2019 Hammers & Nails workshops, and in the spirit of the post-COVID era, we believe it is time to restart.
We are happy to announce a follow-up Hammers & Nails 2022 workshop.
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together HEP/Astrophysicists and machine learning researchers to discuss the unique challenges posed by high-energy physics and Astro data analysis problems.
While some of these problems are simply waiting to be matched with well-established techniques (the pairing of hammers and nails), many require or inspire the development of novel methods around cutting-edge research challenges...
We expect the workshop to be an essential moment to foster new collaborations and shape the next two years of applied ML research
in particle physics.
- Transformers, Attention, large language models (LLM), etc.
- New types of generative models
- Molecules (symmetries, graphs, generative models, etc.)
- Uncertainty quantification and Bayesian NNs
- Algorithmic reasoning
- Optimal transport
- Implicit layers
- Variational inference / probabilistic reconstruction
- Self-supervised learning
We plan an informal atmosphere, with typically 3-4 open-ended lectures each day turning into a free discussion, and plenty of time for both independent work and collaboration.
Participation is by invitation only.
We offer travel support; for organizational purposes, you must provide us with the Visiting Scientist and reimbursement details that can be found in the "forms" page on this website, and in the email that you should have received from our admin. Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions.
