Summer School "Physical Sensing and Processing" 2nd Edition

In Physics the study of physical phenomena requires the detection and the processing of a physical signal. The School aims at discussing this pipeline across various Physics subdomains.

  • Data: dal 20 luglio 2020 alle 10:00 al 24 luglio 2020 alle 18:00

  • Luogo: The school will be held from July 20th to July 24th. Due to the COVID health emergency, the school will be 100% online and open to everyone

  • Modalità d'accesso: Ingresso libero previa iscrizione

Due to the COVID health emergency, the School will be 100% online and open to everyone, with no fees! It will be entirely steered through videoconferencing systems by a team of professors and researchers from the Department of Physics and Astronomy (DIFA) of Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna, Italy. The School is addressed at Master, PhD students, early-career scientists, but it is also suggested to undergraduate students. Due to the 100% online format, anyway, as stated earlier, everyone interested is welcome to join. All attendees who will actively participate to the collaborative activities of the school will be granted a certificate of attendance.

The School aims at providing a broad overview of various aspects involved in the pipeline that starts from the collection of complex and big data, and goes thorough data handling/cleaning/curation, data processing, data storage, and data analysis towards the extraction of scientific results and their ultimate communication to the public. All aspects in the School are instantiated in a variety of different domains, covering e.g. High-Energy Physics, Medical Physics, Solid State Physics, Computer Science, Astronomy, and more.

The program hosts international speakers, and the official language is English. The program is articulated in front lectures/seminars (1 hour each) - with plenty of additional time for questions and discussions - and hands-on/tutorial sessions. On seminars, we host speakers from University of Bologna,  INFN (National Institute of Nuclear Physics), Caltech/CERN, Cornell University, IBM and Nvidia. On hands-on, the attendees will have a chance to challenge themselves with a Data Science hands-on session with experts from Cornell University, and a Quantum Computing hands-on session with experts from IBM. Cooperative activities are planned to support the creative thinking on the content of the school and the development of transversal and soft skills.
