13th International Workshop on Top-Quark Physics (TOP2020)

Europe/Zurich
Description

The 13th International Workshop on Top Quark Physics (TOP 2020) will bring together experimentalists and theorists to present and discuss the latest developments in top-quark physics. This year's meeting will be an on-line conference with support provided by IPPP Durham. The programme includes a mini-workshop entitled "Jets in top physics: substructure, tagging and machine learning".

Young scientists are especially encouraged to participate, and there will be a block of short plenary talks in the "Young Scientist Forum'' allowing them to present their work. This year's forum will include a selected number of theory talks: abstracts can be submitted to top2020@durham.ac.uk until 14 August.
