This event follows the productive experience of the first AI4EIC workshop held in 2021 at CFNS and is organized by the EICUG AI WG. The scope of this second workshop is to cover all active and potential areas of applications of AI/ML for the EIC.
The workshop will include sessions on (i) accelerator and detector design (EPIC and potentially detector-2), (ii) connections to theory, (iii) analysis, (iv) reconstruction and particle identification, (v) infrastructure and frontiers in AI/ML and (vii) streaming readout, which will allow to discuss different problems, perspectives and leading-edge solutions.
During the workshop we will have AI/ML tutorial sessions provided by experts (academia, national labs, industry). The workshop will also host a Hackathon event (on October 14, whole day event), and a cash prize will be given to the solution winning the competition.
During the first day, we will have talks with perspectives on AI/ML-related research from funding agencies.
AI/ML will be an essential part of all phases of the future EIC and is already contributing to its realization starting from the design and R&D phases. This workshop is a great opportunity to update the community on the progress of ongoing projects and future plans, with discussions on multiple cross-cutting topics that bring together theorists, experimentalists, and AI/ML practitioners.
Instructions on meeting coordinates will be sent via email using the information provided in the registration form.
