Heavy-flavour jets play a central role in LHC phenomenology, ranging from Higgs boson physics, searches for new particles, as well as measurements of Standard Model properties. 


Rapid progress on the experimental side has been matched by novel high-precision theoretical calculations, which include NNLO corrections in QCD. In order to exploit this progress, new jet algorithms that allow for jet flavour labelling in an infra-red and collinear (IRC) safe way have been proposed. 


This workshop aims to bring together theorists and experimentalists working on this topic to assess the experimental feasibility of these new jet algorithms quantitatively.
