Accelerators for Medicine / Vretenar, Maurizio (speaker) (CERN)
This lecture will review the different applications of particle accelerators to the medical field, from cancer treatment with beams of accelerator-produced particles (photons, electrons, protons, ions and neutrons) to the generation of radioactive isotopes used in medical diagnostics, in cancer therapy and in the new domain of theragnostics. For each application will be outlined the state of the art, the potential, and the accelerator challenges to be faced to meet the increasing demand for therapeutic procedures based on accelerators.

Big Data and Social Media / Cerf, Vint (speaker) (Google, Reston, Virginia, USA)
A critical analysis of the "keep everything" Big Data era, the impact on our lives of the information, at first glance "convenient for future use" that we make known about ourselves on the network. NB! The lecture will be recorded like all Academic Training lectures [...]

Statistics for High Energy Physics / Gross, Eilam (speaker) (Weizmann Institute of Science (IL))
The lectures emphasize the frequentist approach used for Dark Matter search and the Higgs search, discovery and measurements of its properties. An emphasis is put on hypothesis test using the asymptotic formulae formalism and its derivation, and on the derivation of the trial factor formulae in one and two dimensions. Various test statistics and their applications are discussed.  Some keywords: Profile Likelihood, Neyman Pearson, Feldman Cousins, Coverage, CLs. [...]

The Antikythera Mechanism: Decoding an astonishing 2000 years old astronomical computer / Seiradakis, John (speaker) (Aristotle Univ, Dept.of Physics, Section of Astrophysics, Astronomy & Mechanics, Thessaloniki, Greece)
A lecture that attempts to explain the functional details, the operation and the purpose of use of an ancient astronomical mechanism, built about 2000 ago. The Antikythera Mechanism was found by chance, in a shipwreck, close to the small Greek island of Antikythera, in April 1900, by sponge divers. The shipwreck was dated between 86 and 67 BCE (coins from Pergamon). [...]
