Optimization, automation and Machine Learning for Accelerator Physics and Photon Science.

chaired by Tom Mertens (HZB)
Monday, 11 February 2019 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at HZB ( 13.10 kino )
Magnus Strasse 2, 12489 Berlin
As systems increase in complexity, producing larger and complexer datasets,
modern optimization and analysis techniques combined with some form of Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning become necessary and gain in popularity fast. This is no different in the field of accelerator physics and photon science. 

The workshop is intended to bring together accelerator physicists, beamline scientists and experimentalists to join efforts, develop new ideas and share experience. The forward-looking goal is to exchange best practices, nurture collaborations and explore capabilities to satisfy the growing interests and needs in the scientific community. 
Participants Gregor Hartmann; Simon Hirlaender; Tom Mertens; Roland Müller; Gianluca Valentino; Luis Vera Ramirez
