Description
The Berkeley Experimental Particle Physics Center Workshop Series
and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab present

Connecting The Dots 2015

Workshop on pattern recognition in sparsely sampled data. A main motivation is charged particle track reconstruction in particle physics experiments, but the workshop is meant to be inclusive across all disciplines wherever similar problems arise. See Scientific Program and Timetable for details.
Talks are by invitation only (contact organizers for further details)
