Parallelization in Modern C++ / Kaiser, Hartmut (speaker) (Louisiana State University)
The traditionally used and well established parallel programming models OpenMP and MPI are both targeting lower level parallelism and are meant to be as language agnostic as possible. For a long time, those models were the only widely available portable options for developing parallel C++ applications beyond using plain threads [...]

Signals for invisible matter from solar-terrestrial observations / Zioutas, Konstantin (speaker) (University of Patras (GR))
We observe a strong correlation between the orbital position of the planets with solar phenomena like flares or the variation of EUV irradiance. Similarly, a correlation is found in the study of the ionization content of the Earth atmosphere. [...]

Supergravity at one loop, anomalies and applications to string phenomenology / Gaillard, Mary K. (speaker) (Berkeley)
I discuss the role of quantum effects in the phenomenology of effective supergravity theories from compactification of the weakly coupled heterotic string. An accurate incorporation of these effects requires a regularization procedure that respects local supersymmetry and BRST invariance and that retains information associated with the effective cut-offs, which have physical meaning for an effective theory [...]

Book presentation followed by discussion: "HEP - still an unfeminine profession?" with Mary K Gaillard / Gibson, Valerie (speaker) (University of Cambridge (GB)) ; Gaillard, Mary K (speaker) (Physics Department, University of California, Berkeley)
In 1981 Mary K Gaillard became the first woman on the physics faculty at the University of California at Berkeley. Her career as a theoretical physicist spanned the period from the inception — in the late 1960s and early 1970s — of what is now known as the Standard Model of particle physics and its experimental confirmation, culminating with the discovery of the Higgs particle in 2012 [...]

Half Life - The divided life of Bruno Maximovitch Pontecorvo / Close, Frank (speaker) (Oxford University)
When Bruno Pontecorvo fled to the USSR at the height of the Cold War in 1950, half way through his life, the British Government, MI5 and FBI tried to portray him as scientifically insignificant, and to imply that his disappearance posed no threat to the West. In reality Pontecorvo was already one of the leading experts in nuclear physics, and recently declassified papers reveal that a prime agenda of FBI and MI5 was to cover up their errors. [...]

Dark Matter Searches at ATLAS / Boveia, Antonio (speaker) (CERN)
The astrophysical evidence of dark matter provides some of the most compelling clues to the nature of physics beyond the Standard Model. From these clues, ATLAS has developed a broad and systematic search program for dark matter production in LHC collisions. [...]
