Exploring the higher structure of symmetries / Del Zotto, Michele (speaker) (Uppsala U.)
An increasing amount of evidence indicates that symmetries of quantum fields are in correspondence with topological membranes of various dimensionality, encoding the conserved quantum numbers of local and extended operators. One feature of topological membranes is that they can form intricated networks of topological junctions, which give generalized symmetries a higher structure. [...]

Unraveling Grid Computing: From Basics to WLCG / Hofsaess, Robin (speaker) (KIT - Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (DE))
In an era where computational demands surpass the capabilities of individual systems and where collaboration across borders becomes paramount, grid computing is the foundation for today's collaborative research. It enables users to access and analyze experiment data from all around the world without further knowledge of the complex systems in the background. In this lecture, however, we will glance behind the user's single point of entry and delve into the foundational aspects of grid computing, from the historical background to the key concepts of a decentralized modern grid infrastructure. After the key concepts, we will examine the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) - the world's most sophisticated scientific computing grid - as a paradigm of contemporary grid infrastructure..

Functional programming (and why it's relevant for HEP computing) / de Geus, Florine (speaker) (CERN/University of Twente (NL))
Anyone that writes code on a regular basis will likely have come across the term “functional programming”, or perhaps even tried their hand and writing some Haskell functions at some point. Still, its strong theoretical roots and at times unfamiliar syntax can make the initial learning curve quite steep. [...]
