The target audience is young post docs and advanced graduate students, with a strong interest in hadron collider physics. Both theorists and experimentalists are encouraged to apply. Lectures will be reviews of both the theoretical and experimental underpinnings of hadron collider physics, as well as a number of special topics drawn from other exciting results at the forefront of research. There will also be informal discussions, tours of Fermilab experiments, and social activities. Students will also have an opportunity to visit the nearby city of Chicago.
In addition to the fundamental topics, we will devote time specifically to topics garnering recent interest including machine learning, advanced reconstruction techniques (pileup mitigation, particle flow, high momentum objects), and precision timing detectors.
