Searches for direct pair production of third generation squarks with the ATLAS detector 20m
Naturalness arguments for weak-scale supersymmetry favour supersymmetric partners of the third generation quarks with masses not too far from those of their Standard Model counterparts. Top or bottom squarks with masses less than a few hundred GeV can also give rise to direct pair production rates at the LHC that can be observed in the data sample recorded by the ATLAS detector. The talk presents recent ATLAS results from searches for direct stop and sbottom pair production.

Inclusive searches for squarks and gluinos with the ATLAS detector 20m
Despite the absence of experimental evidence, weak scale supersymmetry remains one of the best motivated and studied Standard Model extensions. This talk summarises recent ATLAS results on inclusive searches for supersymmetric squarks and gluinos, including third generation squarks produced in the decay of gluinos. The searches involved final states containing jets, missing transverse momentum with and without light leptons, taus or photons.

The EDELWEISS-III Dark Matter Search: Status and Perspectives 25m
EDELWEISS is a direct Dark Matter search program looking for WIMPs in the GeV-TeV mass range. For that purpose, an array of cryogenic Ge mono-crystals read out simultaneously by NTD thermal sensors and by surface electrodes is installed in the Modane underground laboratory. We present a summary of EDELWEISS-II results including limits on axion couplings. For EDELWEISS-III a major upgrade of the setup was undertaken, developing new FID800 Ge bolometers, a new DAQ system and improving the shielding to lower the background. We will present the status of the setup with up to 36 bolometers installed and the expected sensitivities for the upcoming long exposure WIMP search.

Searching for Dark Matter with the LUX experiment 25m
First postulated more than 80 years ago to address the 'missing mass' of the Milky Way galaxy Dark Matter remains as one of the best motivations for Physics Beyond the Standard Model. The Large Underground Xenon (LUX) experiment is a 350kg liquid xenon time projection chamber designed to directly detect galactic dark matter. Currently deployed 1 mile underground in the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, LUX completed its first physics run in 2013 and produced a world-leading limit for spin-independent scattering of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) using 95.3 live-days of WIMP-search data. After presenting these first results this talk will go on to discuss the calibration and detector development work following the first physics run as well as the current status of LUX and preparations for the upcoming 300-day run.

Searching a Dark Photon with HADES 25m
The existence of a photon-like massive particle, the gamma' or dark photon, is postulated in several extensions of the Standard Model. Such a particle could indeed help to understand the puzzling behavior of the observed cosmic positron fraction as well as to solve the sofar unexplained deviation between the measured and calculated values of the muon g−2 anomaly. The dark photon, unlike its conventional counterpart, would have mass and would be detectable via its mixing with the latter. We present a search for the e+e− decay of such a hypothetical dark photon, also named U boson, in inclusive dielectron spectra measured with HADES in the p(3.5 GeV)+p, Nb reactions, as well as in the Ar(1.756 GeV/u) +KCl reaction. A new upper limit on the kinetic mixing parameter squared (epsilon^2) at 90% CL has been obtained in the mass range M(U) = 0.02 – 0.55 GeV and is compared here with the present world data set. For masses 0.03 – 0.1 GeV, the limit has been lowered with respect to previous results, allowing to exclude a large part of the parameter space favored by the muon g−2 anomaly. From our data also an improved upper limit of 2.3 × 10^-6 (90% CL) could be set on the branching ratio of the helicity-suppressed direct decay of the eta meson, i.e. eta -> e+e−.

DArKSIDE-50: results from first argon run 25m
DarkSide-50 (DS-50) at Gran Sasso underground laboratory, Italy, is a direct dark matter search experiment based on a TPC with liquid argon from underground sources. The DS-50 TPC, with 50 kg of active argon and a projected fiducial mass of >33 kg, is installed inside an active neutron veto based on a boron-loaded organic scintillator. The neutron veto is built inside a water cherenkov muon veto. DS-50 has been taking data since Nov 2013, collecting more than 2e7 events with atmospheric argon. This data represents an exposure to the largest background, beta decays of Ar-39, comparable to the full three-year run planned for DS-50 with underground argon. When analyzed with a threshold that would give a sensitivity in the full run of about 1e-45 cm^2 at a WIMP mass of 100 GeV/c^2, there is no Ar-39 background observed. The detector design and performance will be presented as well as results from the atmospheric argon run still in progress. Plans for the underground argon run and for a ton-scale detector within the same neutron veto vessel will be presented.

Strangeness in the Universe? Advances and perspectives in the low-energy kaon-nucleon/nuclei interaction studies at the DAFNE collider 25m
The low-energy QCD in the strangeness sector is still lacking fundamental experimental results in order to achieve a breakthrough in its understanding. Among these experimental results, the low-energy kaon-nucleon/nuclei interaction studies are playing a key-role. Combining the excellent quality kaon beam delivered by the DAFNE collider with new experimental techniques, as fast and very precise X ray detectors, like the Silicon Drift Detectors, and with the almost full acceptance charged and neutral particles KLOE detector, we have performed unprecedented measurements in the low-energy strangeness sector in the framework of SIDDHARTA and AMADEUS Collaborations. The kaonic atoms, as kaonic hydrogen and kaonic deuterium, provide the isospin dependent kaon-nucleon scattering lengths from the measurement of X rays emitted in the de-excitation process to the fundamental 1s level of the initially excited formed atom. The most precise kaonic hydrogen measurement was performed by the SIDDHARTA collaboration, which realized, as well, the first exploratory measurement for kaonic deuterium ever. Additional important measurements of more complex systems, as kaonic helium 3 and kaonic helium 4, were as well done (the kaonic helium 3 was measured for the first time as well). Presently, a major upgrade of the setup, SIDDHARTA-2 is ready to perform in the near future a precise measurement of kaonic deuterium and other exotic atoms. The kaon–nuclei interactions are being measured by the AMADEUS collaboration for kaon momenta smaller than 100 MeV/c by using the KLOE detector implemented in the central region with a dedicated setup. Preliminary results for the interaction of negatively charged kaons with various type of nuclei will be shown, including an analyses of the still “mysterious” Lambda(1405). Future plans will be discussed. DAFNE, with SIDDHARTA, SIDDHARTA-2 and AMADEUS, represents an opportunity which is unique in the world to, finally, unlock the secrets of the QCD in the strangeness sector, with important consequences going from particle and nuclear physics to astrophysics.

Hyperon-nucleon interaction in chiral effective field theory 25m
Recently, a hyperon-nucleon (YN) interaction has been derived up to next-to-leading order in chiral effective field theory by the Jülich-Bonn-Munich group. At that order there are contributions from one- and two-pseudoscalar-meson exchange diagrams and from four-baryon contact terms without and with two derivatives. SU(3) flavor symmetry is imposed for constructing the YN interaction in order to reduce the number of free parameters. In the actual calculation the SU(3) symmetry is broken, however, by the mass differences between the Goldstone bosons (pion, eta, K-meson) and between the baryons. For these masses the known physical values are used. An excellent description of available Lambda-N and Sigma-N scattering data has been achieved at next-to-leading order. Corresponding results will be reported. The in-medium properties of this YN interaction have been investigated. Specifically, binding energies of the Lambda and Sigma hyperons in nuclear matter have been calculated, based on conventional first-order Brueckner calculation, and will be presented and discussed.

Measuring the potential of antihyperons in nuclei with antiproton beams at PANDA 25m
PANDA is a key experiment of the FAIR facility in Darmstadt. It will study fundamental questions of hadron physics and QCD by exploring interactions between an antiproton beam and a fixed proton or nuclear target. Because of the relative large production cross section of hyperon-antihyperon pairs in antiproton-nucleus collisions, PANDA will be an ideal instrument to study hyperons and antihyperons in a nuclear medium. The interaction between a baryon and an anti-baryon may shed light on the short-range structure of the residual baryon-baryon force. However, because of the deep imaginary potential the behavior of anti-hyperons in nuclei is terra incognita. The exclusive production of hyperon-antihyperon pairs (as well as meson-antimeson pairs) close to their respective production threshold represents the only realistic opportunity to study quantitatively antihyperons in nuclei. In the case of (Lambda + Lambda_bar) and (Sigma minus + Lambda_bar) production in antiproton-neon collisions around 1 GeV incident energy, calculations using the GießenBUU transport model indicatea strong sensitivity of transverse momentum correlations on the depth of the Lambda_bar potential well in nuclei. Because of the relative large production cross section of (Lambda + Lambda_bar) pairs in antiproton-nucleus collisions the luminosity required at PANDA experiment at FAIR will be rather moderate. Therefore, this experiment is ideally suited for the start-up phase of PANDA@FAIR. In this talk we present the predictions of the transport model calculations for different beam energies and different neon isotopes. The expected sensitivity of the PANDA setup obtained by a realistic Monte Carlo inserted in the experiment full simulation framework will be discussed.

Search for the K ̄pp bound state via the inflight-kaon reaction on helium-3 25m
The investigation of antikaon(Kbar) nuclear bound states is one of the hottest topics in strangeness nuclear physics since observations of such states give quite unique information on the sub-threshold KbarN interaction[1]. However, the existence of Kbar nuclear-states has not been established so far, even for the simplest system, K ̄pp[2]. Our approach is to search for the K ̄pp bound state via the 3He(K ̄,n) reaction at a kaon momentum of 1 GeV/c(J-PARC E15[3]). In this reaction, most of background processes such as multi-nucleon processes and hyperon decays are separable thanks to the inflight kinematics. A helium-3 target enlarges the chance to reconstruct full kinematics of the reaction by detecting the expected decay, “K ̄pp” → Λp → π ̄pp. To realize such a measurement, we constructed a spectrometer system composed of a beam spectrometer, a large acceptance cylindrical detector system (CDS) surrounding a liquid helium-3 target, and a forward neutron detection system at the K1.8BR experimental area in the J-PARC hadron experimental facility[4]. The first physics data were taken in May, 2013, with ∼5 × 10^9 kaons on the helium-3 target. The main goal of the data-taking was to search for a signal of the K ̄pp bound state in the (semi-)inclusive neutron analysis, which requires much less kaon irradiation than the exclusive Λpn measurement. The new spectrometer system worked well as expected, and we successfully obtained the 3He(K ̄,n)X missing-mass spectrum at forward angle with a resolution of ∼10 MeV/c^2 at around the K ̄ + p + p mass threshold. The spectrum was obtained by requiring at least one charged track in the CDS to reconstruct the vertex position, and has a good signal-to-noise ratio of ∼100 : 1 at the quasi-free K ̄“N”→KbarN reaction peak. The analysis will soon be finalized. In this contribution, the latest results of the first physics data in J-PARC E15 will be discussed, focusing on the K ̄pp bound region in the semi-inclusive 3He(K ̄,n) spectrum. [1] Y. Akaishi and T.

Equation of state for supernova and neutron stars in a relativistic mean field model with density dependent couplings 20m
The equation of state (EoS) of hot and dense matter plays a fundamental role in the understanding of core-collapse supernova. A phase transition from hadronic to exotic phases might occur in the early post-bounce phase of a core collapse supernova. We generate a full tabular equation of state of dense matter with $\Lambda$ hyperons. The $\beta$-equilibrated EoS involving hyperon-hyperon interaction results in a $2.1 M_{\odot}$ neutron star, that is compatible with the latest observations. We adopt a density-dependent relativistic mean field model(DD2) for a broad range of density ($\sim 10^4-10^{15}$ g/cm$^3$), temperature($T=0.01\quad \mathrm{to}\quad 10^{2.4}$ MeV ) and charge-to-baryon number ratio ($Y_p= 0 \quad \mathrm{to} \quad0.65$ ). The DD model is exploited to describe uniform and non-uniform matter in a consistent manner. Further, light and heavy nuclei along with interacting nucleons are treated in the nuclear statistical equilibrium (NSE) model of Hempel and Schaffner-Bielich (HS) which includes excluded volume effects and DD relativistic interactions. We investigate the role of strange hyperons in the dynamical collapse of a non-rotating massive star to a black hole using 1D General relativistic simulation $GR1D$. We follow the dynamical formation and collapse of a protoneutron star (PNS) from the gravitational collapse of a massive progenitor of Wooseley, adopting our DD2 hyperonic EoS. We also study the neutrino signals that may be used as a probe to core collapse supernova. We compare our results with those of Shen EoS.

Recent results from the Telescope Array Experiment 20m
The Telescope Array Experiment (TA) is the northern hemisphere's largest detector of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECRs). Built to measure the UHECR chemical composition, arrival-direction anisotropy, and energy spectrum for E > 1 EeV, TA's instrumentation includes both an array of scintillator-based particle counters and three fluorescence detector stations overlooking the ground array. This talk highlights recent composition, spectrum, and anisotropy measurements based on UHECR data collected since TA operations began in 2007, including preliminary results for E > 10 PeV from the newly commissioned TA Low-energy Extension (TALE). The expected impact of planned expansions to the experiment will also be described.

LHCf : Very forward measurement at LHC p-p and p-Pb 20m
The LHCf experiment is one of the forward experiments at the LHC. The purpose is to provide critical calibration data for hadronic interaction model which are used for MC simulations of air shower generated by very high energy cosmic-rays. The LHCf has two independent detectors which are installed at +/-140m from a LHC interaction point, IP1. The detectors are sampling and imaging calorimeters and the rapidity coverage is > 8.4.

The Kinematic Lightweight Energy Meter (KLEM) method for the NUCLEON space experiment 20m
The NUCLEON apparatus is a low orbit space ray detector positioned on the Resurs-P satellite. The main detector for measuring space ray energy is the kinematic lightweight energy meter (KLEM). The KLEM method is a development of the kinematic calorimeter method proposed by Castagnoli in 1953. The main principle of a basic kinematic calorimeter is to measure primary particle’s energy by measuring spatial distribution of secondary particles produced by first hadron interaction in the target. The difference of the KLEM from such calorimeter consists in presence of the gamma converter. Its task is to convert gammas, produced in neutral pions’ decays, into electron-positron pairs. This increases number of registered secondary fragments and accuracy of the method. Application of the KLEM method has allowed to design the detector that is lighter than a traditional ionisation calorimeter, to create the apparatus with greater effective surface and geometrical factor. The KLEM of the NUCLEON space experiment consists of the carbon target of one nuclear length thickness and six planes of silicon strip detectors with tungsten converters 0.5 radiation lengths each. Size of sensitive region is 50x50 cm^2, geometrical factor of the KLEM and the trigger system is 0.2 m^2*sr. To distinguish elements of space rays, a charge measurement system is included into the NUCLEON apparatus. It consists of four planes of silicon pad detectors, which are positioned in front of the target. The test sessions on the SPS CERN beam have shown that the energy measurement accuracy is 80%, and the charge measurement system can distinguish nuclei with Z from 1 to 30. The NUCLEON experiment’s KLEM calorimeter is able to increase accuracy of spectra of space ray elements with energies from 100 GeV to 10 TeV.

Transverse Spin Physics at PHENIX 20m
In the past decade, the data from transverse spin p+p from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory and polarized DIS experiments have enabled enormous progress in our understanding of the transverse spin dynamics in the proton. PHENIX Collaboration has carried out a very active program of transverse spin measurements, including transverse spin asymmetries (TSSAs) in the production of light/heavy quark, of leading neutrons at forward rapidity, and of di-hadron/jet spin correlations in a wide kinematic range. All of these are crucial toward solving the transverse spin puzzle by disentangling the Sivers, the Collins and other spin effects. In the next two years we plan to collect new data on transversely polarized p+p and p+A with high luminosities. In this talk, I will summarize the recent results from the PHENIX experiment, and discuss the near-term prospects of new physics measurements enabled by the newly installed silicon vertex tracker (FVTX) and the MPC-EX detectors currently under construction.

Constraining Transversity and Nucleon Transverse-polarization Structure Through Polarized Proton Collisions at STAR 20m
A complete picture of collinear nucleon spin structure, at leading twist, requires knowledge of three types of parton distribution functions (PDFs): the unpolarized PDFs; the helicity PDFs; and the transversity PDF, the net transverse polarization of quarks within a transversely polarized nucleon. Of the three, transversity is the most difficult to probe due to its chiral-odd nature. Current knowledge of nucleon transverse-polarization structure comes from measurements of transverse single-spin asymmetries (SSAs) from semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (SIDIS). These SIDIS measurements, combined with those of electron-positron collisions, have allowed the first extraction of transversity. The kinematic reach of these measurements leaves poor constraints at higher values of Bjorken-x. One avenue to enrich understanding over a different kinematic range is jet and di-hadron production from polarized-proton collisions. The STAR detector at RHIC has seen non-zero SSAs due to the effects of transversity coupled to the Collins and interference fragmentation functions (IFFs) for the first time in p↑ + p → jet + π^± + X and p↑ + p → π⁺π⁻ + X, respectively, at |η| < 1 from 2.2 pb^-1 at √s = 200 GeV, collected in 2006. In 2011 and 2012, STAR integrated 25 pb^-1 and 20 pb^-1 of transversely polarized proton data at √s = 500 GeV and √s = 200 GeV, respectively. Higher precision measurements of Collins and IFF asymmetries at 200 GeV should allow for more precise constraints of transversity across the kinematic range of p+p collisions. Extending these measurements for the first time to 500 GeV allows one to examine the effects of transverse-polarization structure for a different mix of partonic subprocesses than those found at 200 GeV, for instance, with more favorable sensitivity to linearly polarized gluons. The comparison of all asymmetry moments at 200 GeV and 500 GeV may also yield insight into longstanding theoretical questions concerning evolution, universality, and factorization breaking in non-collinear formulations of pQCD. Results from the 2011 jet analysis at √s = 500 GeV will be presented, including the first-ever measurements offering constraints on models involving gluon linear polarization. The progress of the 2011 IFF analysis at √s = 500 GeV and the 2012 jet and IFF analyses at √s = 200 GeV will also be presented.

Transverse single-spin asymmetries in $W^{\pm}$ and $Z^{0}$ boson production in p+p collisions at $\sqrt{s}=500$ GeV at RHIC 20m
The Sivers function $f^{\perp}_{1T}$ describes the correlation of parton transverse momentum with the transverse spin of the nucleon. There is evidence of a quark Sivers effect in semi-inclusive DIS (SIDIS) measurements. In SIDIS, the quark Sivers function is associated with a final state effect from the gluon exchange between the struck quark and the target nucleon remnants. On the other hand, for the virtual photon production in the Drell-Yan process, the Sivers asymmetry appears as an initial state interaction effect. As a consequence, the quark Sivers functions are of opposite sign in SIDIS and in Drell-Yan and this non-universality is a fundamental prediction from the gauge invariance of QCD. The experimental test of this sign change is one of the open questions in hadronic physics, and can provide a direct verification of TMD factorization. While luminosities required for a precise measurement of asymmetries in Drell-Yan production are challenging, $W^{\pm}/Z^{0}$ production is equally sensitive to the predicted sign change and can be well measured at the STAR experiment. The results can also provide essential input to study the evolution effects of the Sivers function, because of the high $Q^{2}$ in $W^{\pm}/Z^{0}$-production. The $W$ boson kinematics are fully reconstructed from the decay lepton and the recoil, by employing a MC-based correction, thus avoiding the dilution that an asymmetry reconstructed from the decay lepton only would suffer. We will present the preliminary results for the measurement of the transverse single spin asymmetry, $A_{N}$, of the $W^{\pm}/Z^{0}$ bosons from the STAR experiment at RHIC using transversely polarized proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=500$ GeV. RHIC is capable of delivering up to $\sim 1~\text{fb}^{-1}$ at $\sqrt{s} = 500$ GeV during the upcoming 2016 p+p run. This will allow STAR to simultaneously test the Sivers' sign change, investigate the sea-quark Sivers' function and pin down TMD evolution through measurements of Drell-Yan, $W^{{\pm}}/Z^{0}$ and $\gamma$ production in p+p collisions.

Polarised Drell-Yan measurement in the COMPASS experiment at CERN 20m
The COMPASS experiment at CERN has been contributing to the description of the nucleon spin structure, namely the transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions (TMDs), through the Semi-Inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering (SIDIS) using a muon beam impinging on polarised targets. These TMD functions are also accessible via the transversely polarised Drell-Yan (DY) process, which will be studied in the next COMPASS data taking, starting this fall. This process, in which the proton valence region will be explored, will be studied in collisions of a 190 GeV/c negative pion beam with a transversely polarised ammonia target. The QCD prediction that Sivers and Boer-Mulders TMDs change sign when accessed through SIDIS or via DY will be checked by the new COMPASS measurement. Considering one year of data taking, the Sivers azimuthal asymmetry statistical error is expected to be less than 2%. In addition to the polarised target, other nuclear targets will give the possibility to study unpolarised DY subjects. The experimental setup will be presented, and predictions and expectations will be discussed.

COMPASS polarized target for pion-induced Drell-Yan experiment 20m
The Drell-Yan (DY) process is considered to be a powerful tool to study hadron structure. A new generation of polarized DY measurements using unpolarized pion beam and polarized target is under the preparation at COMPASS experiment at CERN. One of the key experimental tasks here is the modification of the unique COMPASS low temperature polarized target for Drell-Yan experiment which is the prerequisite to cope with high heat input from the pion beam. This includes the preparation of the new target holder, high frequency polarizing cavity and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) system for measuring of target polarization in Drell-Yan studies. At COMPASS the unpolarized pion beam with momentum of 190GeV/c and intensity up to 10|8 pions/s will interact with transversely polarized proton target producing muon pair via Drell-Yan process. The solid NH3 is polarized by dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) method. Maximum polarization reached during data taking is expected to be up to 90 %. Two target cells with gap of 20 cm, each 55 cm long and 4 cm in diameter give target cell volume about 690 cm3. The microwave cavity has one central microwave stopper. Non-interacting beam and other particles produced inside the target will be stopped in the hadron absorber after the polarized target. This absorber will worsen somewhat the vertex resolution in comparison with present COMPASS system. Among the first distributions to be studied at COMPASS DY experiments are Sivers, Boer-Mulders and pretzelosity TMDs as well as transversely polarized quark distributions. These measurements will make it possible to test a most important prediction of QCD. The Drell-Yan data taking is expected to start in 2014 - 2015 for period of approximately 180 days. Current status of the polarized target, the required modifications and future plans will be presented.

The E-906/SeaQuest Experiment 20m
The E-906/SeaQuest experiment at Fermilab continues a series of Drell-Yan measurements to explore the antiquark structure of the nucleon and nuclei. To extend existing measurements to larger values of Bjorken-x, a 120 GeV proton beam extracted from Fermilab’s main injector is used, resulting in a factor of 50 more luminosity than previous experiments and enabling access to values of x up to 0.9. An overview will be presented of the key physics goals of the E-906/SeaQuest collaboration. These include investigation of the dramatic dbar/ubar flavor asymmetry in the nucleon sea and its behavior at high x; study of the EMC effect in Drell-Yan scattering and the unexpected absence of any antiquark excess in existing data; and measurements of the angular dependence of the Drell-Yan process, sensitive to spin-orbit correlations within the nucleon. Updates to the SeaQuest experiment with polarized beam (E-1027) and target (E-1039) will allow to study the spin-orbit correlations in the analysis of single-spin asymmetries providing complimentary information to the existing SIDIS data. The talk will conclude with a status report on the ongoing data taking and data analysis of this new experiment.

Strangeness and charm content of strongly interacting matter 30m
Fluctuations of conserved charges, i.e. baryon number, strangeness and electric charge, are sensitive probes for the transition from the confined hadronic to the deconfined partonic phase of strong interaction matter. Rapid changes of, e.g. quadratic fluctuations of net baryon number, net strangeness as well as correlations between these conserved charges, signal the change of degrees of freedom that carry the corresponding quantum numbers. The magnitude of these charge correlations and fluctuations provides information not only on the mass of the carriers of these quantum numbers (hadrons or quarks), they also are sensitive to the overall number of these degrees of freedom. We show that the analysis of correlations between net baryon number and net strangeness or net charm, respectively, provides evidence for the presence of many, experimentally yet unobserved, strange and charmed baryons in hadronic matter at temperatures close to the transition to the quark-gluon plasma [1,2]. We furthermore show that the inclusion of these resonances in the modeling of the hadronic phase of strong interaction matter leads to modifications in the prediction of freeze-out conditions in heavy ion collisions.

The QCD critical end point driven by an external magnetic ﬁeld in asymmetric quark matter 20m
Presently the study of the phase diagram of QCD is the subject of both theoretical and experimental studies under extreme conditions of density and temperature. In particular, it is expected that the phenomenon of deconﬁnement occurs in relativistic heavy-ion collisions and in the interior of compact stars, two very different scenarios when isospin asymmetry is considered. While in heavy ion collisions the proton fraction is presently not smaller than ∼ 0.4, much smaller proton fractions are expected in the interior of neutron stars. Also the understanding of the effect of an external magnetic ﬁeld on the structure of the QCD phase diagram is very important once extremely strong magnetic ﬁelds are relevant for compact objects like magnetars and are expected to affect measurements in heavy ion collisions at very high energies or the behavior of the ﬁrst phases of the universe. Another degree of freedom that must be considered when discussing the QCD phase diagram is strangeness. In the interior of a neutron star it is expected that strangeness is present either in the form of hyperons, of a kaon condensate or of a core of deconfined quark matter. Beta−equilibrium is energetically favored and the Fermi pressure of neutrons is reduced if strangeness degrees of freedom are generated through the action of the weak interaction. On the other hand, the strong force governs heavy ion collisions. In this presentation the location of the critical end point (CEP) in the QCD phase diagram is discussed under different scenarios. The effect of strangeness, isospin/charge asymmetry and an external magnetic ﬁeld is investigated. The discussion is performed within the 2+1 ﬂavor Nambu-Jona-Lasinio mode with Polyakov loop (PNJL). It is shown that isospin asymmetry shifts the CEP to larger baryonic chemical potentials and smaller temperatures. At large asymmetries the CEP disappears. However, a strong enough magnetic ﬁeld drives the system into a ﬁrst order phase transition.

photons in hot dense matter 30m
High energy photons have been measured in heavy ion collisions, at both RHIC and LHC. The direct photons, not from decay, carries a special information of the expanding system.

Thus a comparison between a realistic calculation and the photon data from both RHIC and LHC will be presented and shows how the expanding hot dense matter are shining. The new information we obtained may be useful for the astrophysics, for example, for the search of dark matter. Ref. 1) F.M.

Elliptic flow of thermal photons in chemically non-equilibrated QCD medium 20m
Heavy-ion collisions provide unique opportunities to explore the phenomenology of the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), a deconfined phase of QCD. The hot medium is considered to be a strongly-coupled system because the hadronic elliptic flow -- azimuthal anisotropy in momentum space -- is large and in quantitative agreement with the hydrodynamic models with very small viscosity. The elliptic flow of direct photons is expected to be much smaller than that of hadrons as the medium is indicated to be electromagnetically transparent. However it has recently been found that the quantity is a few times larger than hydrodynamic predictions both in RHIC and LHC experiments [1, 2], posing a theoretical challenge to heavy-ion physics. In this study, I present a possible explanation for the enhancement of thermal photon elliptic flow based on late quark chemical equilibration [3]. The hot medium in transition from a gluon-rich color glass condensate to an equilibrated quark-gluon plasma should have fewer quarks in the beginning [4]. Since quarks are the source of photon emission, thermal photons are mainly produced in later stages where large anisotropy has already developed in the background medium. The numerical estimations of the (2+1)-dimensional hydrodynamic model with the quark and gluon number changing processes indicate that the slow chemical equilibration visibly enhances the elliptic flow of thermal photons. The results indicate that quark chemical equilibration plays an important role in high-energy heavy-ion collisions. References: [1] A. Adare et al. [PHENIX Collaboration], Phys. Rev.

A 95% confidence level upper limit of 1.79 (0.89) times SM Higgs boson cross section has been observed (expected) at a Higgs boson mass of 125 GeV. An excess of events is observed above the expected background with a local significance of 2.2 standard deviations, which is consistent with the expectation from the production of the SM Higgs boson.

Latest results from the aSPECT experiment 30m
The aSPECT retardation spectrometer measures the electron antineutrino angular correlation coefficient a in free neutron beta decay. This measurement can be used to determine the ratio of g_A/g_V of the weak coupling constants, as well as to search for physics beyond the Standard Model. In spring/summer 2013 aSPECT had a successful beamtime at the Institut Laue-Langevin/Grenoble (France). The goal of this beamtime is to improve the current uncertainty of a from ∆a⁄a≈5% to about 1%. To achieve this goal the systematics of aSPECT have to be understood accordingly. This is achieved via systematic tests, measurements of a with different systematic parameter settings during the beamtime and measurements afterwards, like the work-function fluctuations of electrodes or the magnetic field ratio of our MAC-E filter. Sophisticated simulations of our spectrometer are used to understand and reduce further the systematic uncertainties of our spectrometer. In this talk we will present an overview of the current status of the data analysis for the beamtime 2013. This work is supported by the DFG SPP 1491.

Ultracold Neutron Physics at the Los Alamos National Laboratory 30m
The Ultracold Neutron Facility at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center has developed one of the highest density sources of UCN in the world to perform precision measurements of neutron decay observables. The UCNA collaboration has recently published a sub-percent measurement of the beta-asymmetry, A0 = -0.11954 ± 55(stat) ± 98(sys), used to extract λ = gA/gV = -1.2756 ± 30, the ratio of the axial-vector and vector coupling constants. The 2011-2013 UCNA data set is expected to provide a modest improvement to the accuracy of the UCNA value of λ with a precision of about 0.6%, limited by the statistical uncertainty. The systematic error budget, however, is expected to improve dramatically, by over a factor of three, setting the stage for further refinement in the value of λ when higher decay rates become available. The UCNB experiment has demonstrated the first coincident detection of electrons and protons from neutron decay, and has performed a first attempt to measure the neutrino asymmetry B using 15 out of 128 pixels instrumented on the novel thick, large area, highly segmented silicon detector. The UCNτ collaboration has recently performed a successful demonstration of the UCN storage trap, with a storage time of τ = 860 ± 19 s, and is evaluating new experimental techniques that will allow development of a magneto-gravitational trap capable of achieving 0.1 s precision in the neutron lifetime. An effort to determine the neutron EDM using ultracold neutrons is now being developed, with an ultimate sensitivity goal of δd ~ 10^(-27) e-cm. An overview of these experiments, their utility for constraining beyond standard model physics, and latest results will be presented, as well as goals for the 2014 accelerator cycle.

Measuring the neutron lifetime using a magneto-gravitational trap for ultracold neurons 20m
Recent measurements of the neutron lifetime have individually reported uncertainties of about 1 s but disagree by as much 7 s, resulting in a shift of about 6.5 sigma in the accepted value over recent years. Measurements based on the decay in flight of cold neutron beams appear to yield longer lifetimes than those based on counting surviving ultracold neutrons after storage in material-walled traps. The present storage experiments are challenged by the existence of multiple neutron loss mechanisms in the trap that act with characteristic times similar to the neutron lifetime of 880.1 (1.1) s, such as absorption or upscatter of the neutrons on the material trap walls and escape of unbound neutrons from quasi-stable orbits within the trap. Also, the efficiency of detection of the surviving trapped neutrons can vary with time due to evolution of neutron population into different regions of phase space within the trap. Therefore, a new experiment, UCNt, is now being developed at Los Alamos National Lab to eliminate these systematic effects by storing the ultracold neutrons in an asymmetric magneto-gravitational trap, in which the neutrons: 1) never interact with a material surface during their storage time in the trap; 2) rapidly populate all of the energetically accessible phase space; and 3) are detected rapidly at the end of the storage time by a novel in-trap integrating activation detector. The trap consists of a bowl-shaped Halbach array of neodymium-iron permanent magnets capable of repelling neutrons with a kinetic energy of up to 50 neV and is closed on the top by gravity. The neutron detector consists of an absorbing vanadium foil which is lowered into the trap from above to collect the surviving neutrons, then withdrawn to an ex situ activation counter. We will present results of the first neutron storage measurement in the trap and results from commissioning the vanadium activation detector, along with our plans to investigate systematic effects in the experiment with the immediate goal of reaching sufficient precision to resolve the difference between the beam and bottle experiments.

Search for T-Invariance Violation in the Proton-Deuteron Scattering 20m
Time-reversal invariance will be tested in proton-deuteron scattering via an internal target transmission experiment at COSY[1].The polarization asymmetry Ay,xz will be measured using a polarized proton beam (polarization Py) and polarized deuterium target (tensor polarization Pxz). For P-parity conserving interactions this observable provides a real null test of time-reversal invariance which is not affected by the final state interaction [2]. In order to control background conditions of this experiment one has to know the magnitude of several T-even, P-even spin-observables in pd scattering at energy of the planned experiment 100-200 MeV. In the present work the differential spin observables of the elastic pd scattering and total pd cross sections for polarized proton and deuteron are calculated within the Glauber theory. We use the formalism of Ref. [4] and develop it for inclusion of T-odd pN amplitudes. Furthermore, we properly modify the formalism of Ref. [4] to make a comparison with existing experimental data. The results of our calculations for unpolarized differential cross section, vector Ay and tensor Aij analyzing powers, spin correlation parameters Cij, Cij,k and spin-transfer coefficients Kji’ at 135 MeV and 250 MeV are in a reasonable agreement with the data [5,6] in forward hemisphere. We found that Coulomb interaction does not lead to divergences for the Ay,xz observable. The total hadronic polarized cross sections sigma1, sigma2, sigma3 (as defined in Ref. [3]) are calculated using the generalized optical theorem similarly to Ref. [7]. The obtained result for sigma1 put a strong restriction on the magnitude of the false vector polarization of the deuteron (Py <10-6) caused by the planned accuracy of the T-odd effect measurement of about 10-6 [1]. Energy dependence of the Ay,xz observable is calculated for several types of T-odd NN-interactions. This dependence differs from that found in Ref. [8] where only a breakup mechanism was accounted. 1.COSY Proposal N 215,"Test of Time reversal invariance in proton-deuteron scattering at COSY", P.D. Eversheim, B.Lorentz, Yu.

Searches for heavy neutrino mass states and the dark photon in the ~100 MeV/c$^2$ mass range based on samples collected in 2003-2007 are in progress and prospects will be discussed. The NA62 experiment starting in 2014 will search for a range of lepton number and lepton flavour violating decays of the charged kaon and the neutral pion at improved sensitivities down to ~$10^{-12}$, which will probe new physics scenarios involving heavy Majorana neutrinos or R-parity violating SUSY.

Current status of the Dark Matter search experiment CRESST 25m
CRESST is a cryogenic direct Dark Matter search experiment based on phonon-light technique. It is aiming for the detection of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) via their elastic scattering off nuclei in CaWO4 target crystals. Significant improvements have been achieved with respect to previous measuring campaigns in terms of the intrinsic radiopurity of CaWO4 crystals and the rejection of recoil events from alpha decays near surfaces. In this contribution, the related changes in the detector design will be discussed. Based on the first ~30 kg-live-days of data acquired by a single CaWO4 detector of the new design, we will present limits for the spin-independent WIMP-nucleon cross section, in particular down to WIMP masses of 1 GeV.

Dark Matter Searches with the XENON100 and XENON1T Experiment 25m
The XENON100 detector, which is being operated at the Gran Sasso Underground Laboratory, is a dual phase (liquid-gas) xenon time-projection chamber for particle detection. The total amount of liquid xenon is 161 kg, of which 62 kg are in the active target enclosed in a Teflon/copper structure, the rest being in the surrounding active veto. The direct and proportional UV light signal produced by particle interactions is detected by 242 PMTs. To-date XENON100 is one of the most sensitive detector for direct dark matter detection, and has set limits on the spin-independent elastic WIMP-nucleon scattering for WIMP masses above 8 GeV/c^2, with a minimum cross section of 2e-45 cm^2 at 55 GeV/c^2 at 90% confidence level. XENON1T, the next generation Dark Matter Experiment, is being under construction and will house a total amount of 3t of xenon with a fiducial mass of about 1t and a science goal of 2e-47 cm^2 at 100 GeV/c^2. Therefore it has a 100 times lower intrinsic background than XENON100 and it is surrounded by a water tank that acts as an active muon veto. In order to detect the scintillation light from particle interactions with the xenon target, 248 3-inch photomultiplier tubes will be installed on the top and bottom of the TPC. It is planned to upgrade the Experiment to XENONnT with a fiducial target volume of about 4t during the run of XENON1T. In this talk, the present the results of the XENON100 experiment and the status of the near-future plans of the XENON collaboration will be reported.

Dark matter annihilation in the core of a neutron star 25m
Gravitational accretion of dark matter in neutron stars may constitute a mechanism to check for further indirect effects of its existence. In this way, dark matter annihilations taking place within such compact astrophysical objects may prevent the appearance of additional particle population of hadrons inside the neutron star core. We discuss on the experimental consequences of this possibility.

PICO - Bubble Chambers for Dark Matter 25m
The recently formed PICO collaboration, a merger of COUPP and PICASSO, is designing a 250L bubble chamber to search for dark matter in the form of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs). This experiment will have nearly four orders of magnitude greater sensitivity to spin-dependent WIMP-nucleon interactions as compared to our existing world-best results. We operate bubble chambers with thresholds below 3 keV in nuclear recoil energy and with electron recoil background rejection better than 10^{9}. This impressive sensitivity will probe a broad range models for WIMP dark matter that experiments concentrating on spin-independent couplings cannot reach. We are presently operating the PICO-2L and COUPP-60 bubble chambers deep underground to test systems that will be used in the 250L experiment and to extend our dark matter search limits. Recent results and calibrations from these experiments will be presented.

Status of the Fermilab Muon g-2 Experiment 25m

The previous measurement by the Brookhaven E821 experiment found a 3.6 standard deviation discrepancy from the predicted value. The new g-2 experiment at Fermilab will improve the precision by a factor of four through a factor of twenty increase in statistics and a reduced systematic uncertainty with an upgraded apparatus. The experiment will also carry out an improved search for a muon electric dipole moment. Construction at Fermilab is well underway.

The Role of Resonances in p+p Reactions associated with Strangeness Production 25m
The understanding of p+p reactions is fundamental for the interpretation of p+A and also heavy-ion collisions, in which in-medium modifications of hadrons are expected with increasing nuclear matter density. Such modifications can be investigated by comparisons of experimental data to transport models [1,2,3]. Hence, the models should be able to reproduce elementary reactions at the first place. In this contribution we present high statistics K0S data associated with resonance formations in p+p collisions at Ekin = 3.5 GeV measured by the HADES detector at GSI (Darmstadt, Germany). The measurement of this energy regime is of particular importance not only because no data is available at these intermediate energies, but also because it is not clear, whether the processes are dominated by resonance productions or already need to be described via string models (e.g. PYTHIA or FRITIOF) in the transport calculations. In both cases the constraints put up by this measurement for the transport models will be essential for the interpretation of the physics measured by HADES and CBM at the future FAIR facility. The high acceptance and resolution of the HADES spectrometer allows to study exclusive K0S reactions with the focus on the channels p + p -> Y + Delta^{++} + K0S and p + p -> Y + p + pi^{+} + K0S (with Y being either a Lambda or a Sigma^{0}). In particular, the role played by the Delta^{++} resonance has been addressed. The ability to distinguish the resonant from the non-resonant reactions, as well as the Lambda from the Sigma^{0} reactions will be demonstrated in the contribution. This enables us to extract exclusive cross sections as well as angular distributions of the mentioned reactions, which is especially interesting in the case of p + p -> Sigma^{0} + Delta^{++} + K0S , as this reaction has not been measured at other energies before. Finally, the published results [4] can be used as a basis for future studies of p+A and heavy-ion reactions. [1] G. Agakishiev et al., Phys. Rev. C 82, 044907 (2010). [2] M. Büscher et al., Eur.

Cascade production in antikaon reactions with protons and nuclei 25m
We study the meson-baryon interaction in S-wave in the strangeness S=-1 sector using a chiral SU(3) Lagrangian extended to next-to-leading order (NLO). Our model has 7 new parameters, which have to do with NLO terms in the chiral Lagrangian, and which are fitted to the large set of experimental data available for different two-body channels. We pay particular attention to the K- p --> K Cascade reactions, where the effect of the NLO terms in the Lagrangian is very important. In order to improve our model in these particular channels, we take into account phenomenologically the effects of the high spin hyperonic resonances, namely Sigma(2030) (7/2^+) and Sigma(2250) (5/2^-). Some preliminary results can be found in Refs. [1]. Finally, the developed model is applied to simulate the Cascade production in nuclei. [1] V.K. Magas, A. Feijoo Aliau, A.

Eta’ mesic nucleus spectroscopy with (p,d) reaction at GSI 25m
We plan a missing-mass spectroscopy experiment of eta’ mesic nuclei to study　in-medium properties of the eta' meson. The large mass of the eta’ meson compared to the other pseudoscalar mesons is explained by the axial anomaly effect. Since this effect on the eta’ mass is associated with spontaneous breaking of chiral symmetry, in the nuclear medium, where chiral symmetry is partially restored, the mass of the eta’ meson may be reduced. Then, such a mass reduction serves as attractive potential in an eta’-nucleus system and eta’ meson nucleus bound states may exist. The experiment is planned at GSI using a 2.5 GeV proton beam accelerated by SIS (Heavy Ion Synchrotron). We will inject the proton beam onto a carbon target to produce eta’ mesic nuclei by the 12C(p,d) reaction. The missing-mass spectrum of the reaction will be obtained by analyzing the momentum of the ejectile deuteron with the FRS (Fragment Separator) used as a spectrometer. The first pilot experiment will be carried out in July-August 2014. In this contribution, we would like to report the status of the experiment and describe very preliminary analysis.

Pileup subtraction at the particle level 25m
The ability to correct jets and jet shapes for the contributions of multiple uncorrelated proton-proton interactions (pileup) largely determines the ability to identify new physics via highly boosted hadronic decays of W, Z, and Higgs bosons, or top quarks. We present a new method that operates at the level of the jet constituents and provides both a performance improvement and a simplification compared to existing methods. Comparisons of the new method with existing methods along with predictions of the impact of pileup during the LHC run II will be presented. We will also discuss methods that may improve the determination of the missing pt in high pileup environment and a connection between pileup subtraction and the underlying event subtraction in heavy ion collisions.

After the successful LHC operation at the center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV in 2010 - 2012, plans are actively advancing for a series of upgrades of the accelerator, culminating roughly ten years from now in the high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) project, delivering of the order of five times the LHC nominal instantaneous luminosity along with luminosity leveling. The final goal is to extend the dataset from about few hundred fb−1 expected for LHC running to 3000 fb−1 by around 2035 for ATLAS and CMS. In parallel the experiments need to be keep lockstep with the accelerator to accommodate running beyond the nominal luminosity this decade. Current planning in ATLAS envisions significant upgrades to the detector during the consolidation of the LHC to reach full LHC energy and further upgrades. The challenge of coping with the HL-LHC instantaneous and integrated luminosity, along with the associated radiation levels, requires further major changes to the ATLAS detector. The designs are developing rapidly for a new all-silicon tracker, significant upgrades of the calorimeter and muon systems, as well as improved triggers and data acquisition. This report summarizes various improvements to the ATLAS detector required to cope with the anticipated evolution of the LHC luminosity during this decade and the next.

Detectors will need to be upgraded in order to operate in such a high rate and high radiation en- vironment at the HL-LHC.

Evolution studies of the CMS ECAL endcap response and upgrade design options for High-Luminosity LHC 25m
High-Luminosity running at the LHC, which is planned for 2022 and beyond, will imply an order of magnitude increase in radiation levels and particle fluences with respect to the present LHC running conditions. The performance evolution of the CMS electromagnetic calorimeter (ECAL), comprising 75,848 scintillating lead tungstate crystals, indicates that an upgrade of its endcaps will be needed for HL-LHC running, to ensure an adequate performance. Results from LHC collision periods, beam tests and laboratory measurements of proton-irradiated crystals are combined to predict the performance of the current detector at the HL-LHC. In addition, an overview is given of various R&D studies towards a replacement of the ECAL endcaps for the HL-LHC running period.

Recent results on TMDs from the HERMES Experiment 20m
In the last decade, transverse-momentum distributions (TMD) have been recognized as crucial ingredients for a complete understanding of the nucleon structure. They allow for a three-dimensional description of the nucleon (nucleon tomography) in momentum space and could provide insights into the yet unmeasured quark orbital angular momentum through correlations between the quark transverse momentum with the quark or the nucleon spin (spin-orbit correlations). At HERMES, TMDs are probed for various hadron types through the analysis of specific azimuthal modulations of the semi-inclusive deep-inelastic-scattering cross-section as well as in inclusive hadron leptoproduction from transversely polarized protons. An overview of recent HERMES results will be presented.

Transverse structure of the nucleon at COMPASS 20m
COMPASS is a fixed target experiment at the CERN SPS M2 beam line, taking data since year 2002. Part of its physics programme is dedicated to study the transverse spin and the transverse momentum structure of the nucleon using semi- inclusive deeply inelastic lepton scattering (SIDIS). For these measurements, data have been collected using transversely polarised proton (NH3) and deuteron (6LiD) targets. A selection of recent results on the azimuthal asymmetries measured from the data collected with transversely polarised targets is presented, with particular focus on the most recent measurements from the data collected in 2007 and 2010 with the proton target. These results covers Collins, Sivers asymmetries versus different combination of kinematic variables as well as the transverse spin asymmetries in dihadron production.

Exploring Gluon and Antiquark Polarization in the Proton with STAR 20m
The STAR Collaboration is performing a wide range of measurements to determine the gluon and antiquark helicity distributions in the proton. The longitudinal double-spin asymmetries, $A_{LL}$, for inclusive jet and dijet production provide direct access to the gluon polarization. The parity-violating single-spin asymmetries, $A_L$, for $W^{+/-}$ production are sensitive to the $\bar{u}$ and $\bar{d}$ antiquark polarizations. STAR recorded large polarized proton data sets in 2009 at $\sqrt{s}$ = 200 GeV and in 2012 and 2013 at $\sqrt{s}$ = 510 GeV. The 2009 mid-rapidity inclusive jet $A_{LL}$ results place stringent new constraints on the polarized gluon distribution and provide evidence for positive gluon polarization in the Bjorken-$x$ region $x > 0.05$. The 2012 $W$ asymmetry results show a preference for a sizable, positive $\bar{u}$ antiquark polarization in the range $0.05 < x < 0.2$. The inclusive jet $A_{LL}$ and $W$ $A_L$ measurements will be discussed, and status reports will be provided regarding similar measurements with the more recent data sets.

Probing Low x Gluons at STAR with Forward Asymmetry Measurements 20m
One of the major goals of the proton spin physics program at RHIC at BNL is to constrain the gluon polarization distribution $\Delta g(x)$ and thus determine the contribution of gluons to the spin of the proton. Measurements of spin asymmetries with jets and neutral pions at central pseudorapidities at STAR and PHENIX have been critical to this effort. A recent global analysis has, for the first time, yielded evidence of a positive $\Delta g$ in the region $0.05 < x < 0.2$. But, the gluon polarization remains under-constrained for the region $x < 0.05$. A variety of measurements at STAR are planned and underway to better constrain the low-$x$ gluon distribution with asymmetry measurements at non-central, intermediate and forward, pseudorapidities using neutral pion and dijet probes. The STAR endcap electromagnetic calorimeter (EEMC) allows measurements of photonic channels in an intermediate pseudorapidity range, $0.8 < \eta < 2.0$. Results of a recent publication of the $\pi^{0}$ double longitudinal spin asymmetry, $A_{LL}$, at $\sqrt{s} = 200$ GeV will be presented. The status of measurements in the EEMC with much larger datasets, at $\sqrt{s} = 510$ GeV, will be discussed, with the prospect of probing significantly lower $x$ gluons. In an even more forward placement, the STAR forward electromagnetic calorimeter (called FMS) covers $2.65 < \eta < 4.0$. Prospects of, and progress toward, measuring $A_{LL}$ for neutral pions in the FMS with the large 2013 dataset at $\sqrt{s} = 510$ GeV will be discussed. Finally, proposed forward upgrades at STAR envision both electromagnetic and hadronic calorimetry in a pseudorapidity range similar to that currently covered by the FMS. The case of forward dijet production, and $A_{LL}$, at $\sqrt{s} = 500$ GeV with an upgraded detector will be presented, with the possibility of probing $\Delta g$ at values as low as $10^{-3}$ in $x$.

COMPASS results on the nucleon longitudinal spin structure 20m
We present recent COMPASS results on the longitudinal spin structure of the nucleon. Results from measurements of the gluon helicity Delta G (x) from various channels are shown. We recently analysed longitudinal double spin asymmetry A_LL(pT) for single hadron production with high-pT hadrons in the low Q2 regime using all COMPASS data. LiD and NH3 were used as polarized deuteron and proton targets. The asymmetries, which are almost consistent with zero, are compared to theoretical predictions with various Delta G hypotheses. The latest data on the proton spin structure function g1 in the DIS regime extend the kinematic domain towards a smaller value of the Bjorken scaling variable x (0.0036) and higher values of Q2 (up to 100 (GeV/c)2). The data are used in a global QCD NLO fit of polarized DIS world data to constrain the value of the quark spin contribution Delta Sigma to the nucleon spin. The dominant uncertainty results from the choice of the functional forms and in particular of the one taken for the gluon spin contribution Delta G(x).

$J/\psi$ production at the STAR experiment 30m
Suppression of $J/\psi$ production in heavy-ion collisions due to color screening of quark and antiquark potential in the deconfined medium has been proposed as a signature of quark-gluon plasma (QGP) formation. However, there are other effects that may alter the observed $J/\psi$ yields, such as cold nuclear matter effects, and statistical coalescence of c-$\bar{\mathrm{c}}$ pairs. Indeed, recent measurements in Au+Au and d+Au collisions show that these effects play a non-negligible role. Measurements of $J/\psi$ invariant yields and elliptic flow ($v_2$) in different collision energies, collision systems, and centralities can shed new light on understanding the interplay of these effects for $J/\psi$ production and properties of the QGP. In this talk I will report STAR measurements of $J/\psi$ production at mid-rapidity, reconstructed via the dielectron decay channel, in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}} =$ 39 GeV, 62.4 GeV, 200 GeV together with results from U+U collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 193 GeV. Nuclear modification factor will be shown as a function of centrality and $p_T$. I will also present results on $J/\psi$ $v_2$ in Au+Au collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 200 GeV.

Upsilon production in U+U collisions at the STAR experiment 30m
Due to color screening, the production of quarkonia in high energy heavy ion collisions is expected to be sensitive to the energy density of the medium. Sequential suppression of different quarkonium states may therefore serve as a thermometer of the medium. Although the suppression of charmonia was anticipated as a key signature of the QGP, the observed energy dependence of $J/\psi$ suppression is rather weak. This phenomenon is explained by the recombination (coalescence) of $c\bar{c}$ pairs. Bottomonia, on the other hand, are less affected by recombination and can provide a cleaner probe of the strongly interacting medium. Recent STAR results show that in $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=3D200$ GeV central Au+Au collisions the Upsilon 1S state is suppressed more than if only cold nuclear matter effects were present, and the excited state yields are consistent with a complete suppression. The energy density in U+U $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=193$ GeV central collisions is estimated to be about 20% higher than that of $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=200$ GeV central Au+Au. Therefore U+U collisions provide a further test of the sequential suppression hypothesis. The STAR detector collected a total of 17.2 million high-tower triggered events in $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=193$ GeV U+U collisions in the year 2012, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 263.4 $\mu b^{-1}$. Upsilon yields at mid-rapidity versus transverse momentum, as well as the nuclear modification factor with respect to the number of participants, will be reported in this presentation.

Results on heavy-flavour production in pp, p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions with ALICE at the LHC 30m
The primary goal of ALICE at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is to characterise the state of matter with partonic degrees of freedom, the Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) produced in nucleus-nucleus collisions. Heavy-quarks are considered efficient probes of the properties of the QGP since they are produced on a short time scale with respect to that of the QGP. Therefore, they are expected to traverse the strongly interacting medium and to lose energy through radiative and collisional processes. As a consequence of the interaction, the open heavy-flavour hadron spectra are modified with respect to those of proton-proton collisions at the same energy. A quantitative understanding of the nucleus-nucleus results requires reference measurements in proton-proton and proton-nucleus collisions. The study of heavy-flavour hadrons in proton-proton collisions is interesting not only as baseline for the heavy-ion collision measurement but also to provide an important test of perturbative QCD calculations. Furthermore, the study of open heavy-flavour hadron production as a function of the multiplicity of charged particles produced in the collision can give insights into multi-parton interaction phenomena. Finally, the study of open heavy-flavour hadrons in p-Pb collisions is necessary to disentangle the hot and cold nuclear matter effects in Pb-Pb collisions. In ALICE, open heavy flavours are studied through the reconstruction of D-meson hadronic decays at mid-rapidity, and via semi-electronic (at mid-rapidity) and semi-muonic (at forward rapidity) decays of charm and beauty hadrons. A review of the main results on open heavy-flavour hadron production in pp collisions at \sqrt{s} = 7 TeV and Pb-Pb collisions at \sqrt{s_NN} = 2.76 TeV will be presented. The latest results obtained in p-Pb collisions at sqrt{s_NN} = 5.02 TeV will also be discussed.

Measurements use the full data set collected by D0 in Run II corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 9.7/fb. We present the most recent measurement of the lepton-based asymmetries both in lepton+jets and dilepton final states and their combination. We also present the top-quark based asymmetry as an inclusive measurement and differentially in m(ttbar). These results are corrected for efficiency, acceptance and resolution effects to parton level. Measurements are compared to theory predictions.

The First Cold Beam of Antihydrogen Atoms from a Cusp Trap 20m
Antihydrogen is the simplest atom made entirely of antimatter, consisting of an antiproton and a positron. The study of its matter counterpart, the hydrogen atom, has produced some of the most precise determinations of physical quantities. High precise measurements of antihydrogen will allow to achieve direct tests of the fundamental symmetries of Nature through the comparison with hydrogen. The ASACUSA Collaboration has recently succeeded in producing the first beam of cold antihydrogen atoms. Antihydrogen was formed in a cusp trap by overlapping a cloud of low energy antiprotons with a positron plasma. The peculiar magnetic configuration has permitted the formation of an antihydrogen beam: 80 antiatoms were detected around 3 m downstream of the production region in a field free region where high resolution spectroscopy of the hyperfine structure of the ground state can be performed.

Spectroscopy apparatus for the measurement of the hyperfine structure of antihydrogen 30m
The ASACUSA CUSP collaboration at the Antiproton Decelerator of CERN has recently succeeded in detecting 80 antihydrogen atoms 2.7 meters away from their production trap in a magnetic field free region [1]. This successful detection constitutes a milestone toward precision spectroscopy of antimatter atoms in a beam. The goal of the ASACUSA CUSP collaboration is indeed to measure the ground- state hyperfine splitting of antihydrogen using an atomic spectroscopy beamline. The setup consists of a source of partially polarized antihydrogen atoms [2] emitted toward a radiofrequency spin-flip cavity with its resonance frequency tuned to the hyperfine transition. A superconducting sextupole magnet serves as spin analyser before the detection of the atoms in an antihydrogen detector [3]. Monte Carlo simulations show that the antihydrogen ground-state hyperfine splitting can be determined in such a beam setup at a relative precision of 0.1 ppm which, compared with the same transition in hydrogen, would provide one of the best tests of CPT symmetry. My talk will present the latest developments on the spectroscopy apparatus downstream of the antihydrogen polarizing source and the coming years program to achieve the above mentioned precision. I will also present the most recent results obtained with the atomic hydrogen beamline developed to test the performance of the spectroscopy apparatus during the CERN accelerator shutdown (LS1).

Laser spectroscopy of the hyperfine splitting energy in the ground state of muonic hydrogen 20m
We are planning to measure the ground-state hyperfine splitting energy of muonic hydrogen by laser spectroscopy techniques at the RIKEN-RAL Muon facility. The hyperfine splitting energy is about 0.182 eV, which corresponds to the laser wavelength of 6.7 μm. The experiment has become feasible by a narrow-bandwidth tunable mid-infrared laser recently developed in RIKEN [1]. The expected precision for the hyperfine splitting energy is around 2 ppm owing to the narrow bandwidth of the laser. Through the theoretical calculation with the proton structure-dependent corrections [2], the hyperfine splitting energy is directly connected to the Zemach radius (the first moment of the convolution of the proton charge and the magnetic moment distributions). This experiment is the first precise measurement of the ground-state hyperfine splitting of muonic hydrogen and can provide new insights on “Proton radius puzzle", which has been issued by a recent measurement of the Lamb shift in muonic hydrogen at Paul Scherrer Institute [3]. When the laser is irradiated onto the ground-state muonic hydrogen with the resonance frequency of the hyperfine splitting energy, the spin-flip transition is induced from the spin-singlet to the spin-triplet hyperfine sub-levels. Since the muon spin in the triplet state can be polarized by a circularly-polarized laser, we can search for the resonance frequency by detecting the spatial asymmetry of the electrons from the polarized muon decay. In this contribution, we present the physics motivation, the experimental principle and its feasibility. [1] N. Saito et al., Proc. of SPIE, vol. 8526, 852605-1 (2012). [2] A. Dupays et al., Phys.

Experimental Study of the Parity Violating Hadronic Weak Interaction 20m
The study of the Hadronic Weak Interaction, and particularly of the stangeness-conserving HWI between nucleons, is of interest for several reasons: Some of the phenomena observed in the strangeness-changing HWI cannot be explained in terms of the symmetries of QCD, which opens the possibility for a non-trivial QCD dynamical process that is either related to the presence of the strange quark, or is a more general process that also affects light quarks; measurement of weak amplitudes in the $\Delta S=0$ sector could discriminate between the two possibilities. The $\Delta S=0$ HWI is also perhaps the only via to study weak neutral currents at low energies, and constitutes a probe for quark-quark correlations in nucleons. At low energies, using an Effective Field Theory approach, the nucleon-nucleon HWI can be parameterized in terms of five weak transition amplitudes involving $S$ and $P$ waves. There is a program to determine these weak amplitudes through the measurement of PV observables in few-nucleon systems in experiments that make use of low-energy neutron beams at the ORNL Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) and the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR). Also other type of studies, like the measurement of PV in the deuteron photo desintegration are a future possibility. I will present an overview of several experiments (NPDGamma, n-$^3$He and Neutron Spin Rotation) that are part of this program.

Fundamental Physics with the ALPHA Antihydrogen Project at CERN 30m
ALPHA is an international project at CERN, whose ultimate goal is to test symmetry between matter and antimatter at highest possible precision via comparisons of the properties of atomic hydrogen with its antimatter counter-part, antihydrogen. After several years of development, we recently achieved significant milestones, including the first stable confinement of antihydrogen [1] for as long as 1000 seconds [2]. ALPHA has also succeeded in performing the first proof-of-principle spectroscopic measurement on antihydrogen atoms by driving its hyperfine transitions with microwaves [3]. Most recently, we reported a precision measurement of charge neutrality of antihydrogen, setting a new limit of the electric charge of the positron [4]. Moreover, we have recently constructed an entirely new apparatus, ALPHA-2, which will allow laser access to the trapped anti-atoms, and provide improved magnetic field configurations for microwave spectroscopy. For the longer-term, possibilities for a measurement of antimatter-gravity interactions are being explored. This talk will discuss the recent achievements and the future prospects of fundamental physics studies with ALPHA. References : [1] G. B. Andresen et al., Nature 468, 673 (2010). [2] G.B.

Searches for production of two Higgs bosons using the CMS detector 20m
Searches for events containing two Higgs bosons are presented using several decay channels of the h(126) boson. The analyses use pp collision data recorded at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5 fb-1 and 20 fb-1, respectively. Extended Higgs sector scenarios predict the resonant decay of new particles into a pair of h(126) bosons.

Beyond-the-Standard Model Higgs physics using the ATLAS experiment 20m
The discovery of a Higgs boson with a mass of about 125 GeV has prompted the question of whether or not this particle is part of a larger and more complex Higgs sector than that envisioned in the Standard Model. In this talk, the current results from the ATLAS experiment on Beyond-the-Standard Model (BSM) Higgs searches are outlined. Searches for additional Higgs bosons are presented and interpreted in well-motivated BSM Higgs frameworks, such as two-Higgs-doublet Models and the Minimal and Next to Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model.

Various models with extended Higgs sectors are being considered, such as the minimal and next-to-minimal supersymmetric extensions (MSSM and NMSSM) of the SM. Recent results of searches for additional Higgs bosons with the CMS detector are presented, which are based on pp collision data collected at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5 fb-1 and 20 fb-1.

A search for Higgs boson invisible decay modes has been carried out in events where the Higgs boson is produced in association with a Z boson or through Vector Boson Fusion. In the associated production search, electron, muon, and b-quark pair decay modes of the Z boson are considered. The analyses are based on proton-proton collision data collected with the CMS detector at the LHC collider at centre-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to integrated luminosities of 5/fb and 20/fb, respectively. No evidence of a signal has been found and upper limits on the invisible branching ratio are obtained and interpreted in a Higgs portal model of dark matter interactions.

Recent results on the charmed hadron systems at Belle 25m
CP violation and mixing in the charm meson system are expected to be very small in the standard model (SM), hence it can be a good probe to search for new physics beyond the SM. With large relative cross-section for charmed hadron production and clean event environment combined with high luminosity, the Belle experiment, with high statistics $e^+ e^-$ collision data taken at the KEKB energy-asymmetric collider using the Belle detector, is a very good place to study charmed hadron systems. In this presentation we report recent results from Belle on CP violation and mixing in the neutral D meson system. We also present recent results from Belle in the charmed baryon spectroscopy, including new measurements of mass, width, and absolute branching fractions of various charmed baryons.

Energy and density dependence of the $\bar{K}N$ and $\eta N$ amplitudes near threshold 24m
We analyze the $\bar{K}N$ and $\eta N$ interactions using an effective separable potential coupled channels model that implements chiral symmetry [1], [2]. The energy dependence of both the $\bar{K}N$ and $\eta N$ scattering amplitudes is strongly affected by dynamically generated resonances close to the meson-baryon thresholds, the $\Lambda(1405)$ and $N^{\star}(1535)$, respectively. We discuss the relation of the observed energy dependence to the resonance pole dynamics in a free space and in nuclear medium. The model predicts an $\eta N$ stattering length $\Re a_{\eta N} \approx 0.7$ fm and in-medium subthreshold attraction most likely sufficient to generate $\eta$-nuclear bound states [3], similar to those predicted for the $\bar{K}$-nuclear interactions [4].

Dilepton production in transport-based approaches 24m
We investigate dilepton production at SIS and SPS energies in transport-based approaches and show that the baryon couplings of the rho meson represent the most important ingredient for understanding the measured dilepton spectra. At lower energies, the baryon resonances naturally play a larger role and affect already the vacuum spectra via Dalitz-like contributions, which can be captured well in an on-shell-transport scheme. At higher energies, the baryons mostly affect the in-medium self energy of the rho, which is harder to tackle in transport models. We employ a coarse-graining approach in order to incorporate dynamic in-medium spectral functions into a transport-evolution model and show that this yields reasonable results at both SIS and SPS energies.

Upgrading the ATLAS Tile Calorimeter electronics 25m
The Tile Calorimeter (TileCal) is the central hadronic calorimeter of the ATLAS experiment at LHC. Around 2023, after the upgrade of the LHC (High Luminosity LHC, phase 2) the peak luminosity will increase by a factor of 5 compared to the design value (10^34 cm^-2 s^-1), thus requiring an upgrade of the TileCal readout electronics. Except the 9852 photomultipliers (PMTs), most of the on- and off-detector electronics will be replaced, with the aim of digitizing all PMT pulses at 40 MHz at the front-end level and sending them with 10 Gbps optical links to the back-end electronics. Moreover, to increase reliability, redundancy will be introduced at different levels. Three different options are currently being investigated for the front-end electronics and extensive test beam studies are planned to select the best option. One demonstrator prototype module is also planned to be inserted in TileCal in 2014 that will include hybrid electronic components able to probe the new design, but still compatible with the present readout architecture.

The LHCb trigger and its upgrade 25m
The LHCb experiment is a spectrometer dedicated to the study of heavy flavour at the LHC. The current LHCb trigger system consists of a hardware level, which reduces the LHC inelastic collision rate of 13MHz to 1 MHz, at which the entire detector is read out. In a second level, implemented in a farm of 20k parallel-processing CPUs, the event rate is reduced to about 5 kHz. We review the performance of the LHCb trigger system, focusing on the High Level Trigger, during Run I of the LHC. The High Level Trigger showcased a number of pioneering concepts, for example : the deployment of an inclusive multivariate B-hadron tagger as the main physics trigger of the experiment, buffering of events to local disks in order to leverage the otherwise idle resources when the LHC does not produce collisions, and simulation-free event-by-event trigger efficiency corrections. The LHCb experiment plans a major upgrade of the detector and DAQ system in the LHC shutdown of 2018. In this upgrade, a purely software based trigger system is being developed, which will have to process the full 30 MHz of inelastic collisions delivered by the LHC. We demonstrate that the planned architecture will be able to meet this challenge, particularly in the context of running stability and long term reproducibility of the trigger decisions. This talk will cover the design and performance of the LHCb trigger system in Run I as well as the planned improvements in the upgrade of the LHCb experiment.

The STAR Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT) 25m
The heavy quark hadrons are suggested as a clean probe for studying the early dynamic evolution of the dense and hot medium created in high-energy nuclear collisions. The Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT) of the STAR experiment, designed to improve the vertex resolution and extend the measurement capabilities in the heavy flavor domain, was installed for the 2014 heavy ion run of RHIC. It is composed of three different silicon detectors arranged in four concentric cylinders close to the STAR interaction point. The two innermost layers are based on CMOS monolithic active pixels (MAPS), featured for the first time in a collider experiment, and the two outer layers are based on pads and strips. The two innermost HFT layers are placed at a radius of 2.7 and 8 cm from the beam line and accommodate 400 ultra-thin (50 um) high resolution MAPS sensors arranged in 10-sensor ladders to cover a total silicon area of 0.16 m2. Each sensor includes a pixel array of 928 rows and 960 columns with a 20.7 μm pixel pitch, providing a sensitive area of ~ 3.8 cm2. The sensor features 185.6 μs readout time and 170 mW/cm2 power dissipation, allowing it to be air cooled, which results in a global material budget of only 0.5% radiation length per layer. A novel mechanical approach to detector insertion enables effective installation and integration of the pixel layers within an 8 hour shift during the on-going STAR Run. After a detailed description of the design specifications and the technology implementation, the detector status and operations during the current 200 GeV Au+Au run will be presented in this talk. A preliminary estimation of the detector performance meeting the design requirements will be reported.

The highest energy particles: Measurements from the Pierre Auger Observatory 20m
The Pierre Auger Observatory is the world's largest cosmic ray observatory.  The observatory combines two complementary detection techniques to study the extensive particle showers created by collisions of primary cosmic rays with the atmosphere.  Analysis of those showers enables one not only to estimate the energy, direction and most probable mass of the primary cosmic particles, but also to obtain information about the properties of their hadronic interactions at an energy more than one order of magnitude above that accessible with the current highest energy human-made accelerator. In this contribution we will discuss the cosmic ray energy spectrum, searches for directional anisotropy, studies of mass composition, the determination of the number of shower muons (which is sensitive to the shower hadronic interactions), and limits on the fluxes of primary photons and neutrinos.

The origin, composition and mechanisms of acceleration the Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECRs) are not yet fully understood. The trajectories of these particles can be affected by cosmic magnetic fields. Depending on the strength and properties of these fields, charged cosmic rays can diffuse and have propagation times comparable to the age of the universe, causing a suppression in the measured flux of particles. In this work we use magnetic field distributions from cosmological simulations to study the effects of this suppression on the UHECR spectrum and mass composition.

Results and prospects on registration of reflected Cherenkov light of EAS from cosmic particles above 10^15eV. 20m
Despite the efforts of numerous experiments with different components of extensive air showers (EAS) in the last decades, the uncertainty in the all nuclei spectrum of primary cosmic rays is still high and the results on chemical composition of primary cosmic rays from different experiments contradict each other. In this study an overview of the SPHERE experiment based on detection of the Vavilov-Cherenkov radiation from EAS reflected from the snow surface and of various experiments based on the same method in the same energy region E>10^15 eV is given. In particular, experimental results, methods of analysis of collected data along with subsequent methods of spectrum and mass composition reconstruction, their advantages and weak points are discussed. The first results on the energy spectrum and mass composition reconstruction of the SPHERE experiment are given and discussed and the main sources of systematic uncertainties that can affect these results are evaluated.

Nuclear pairing from microscopic forces: singlet channels and higher-partial waves 20m
Background: An accurate description of nuclear pairing gaps is extremely important for understanding static and dynamic properties of the inner crusts of neutron stars and to explain their cooling process. Purpose: We plan to study the behaviour of the pairing gaps as a function of the Fermi momentum for neutron and nuclear matter in all relevant angular momentum channels where superfluidity is believed to naturally emerge. The calculations will employ realistic chiral nucleon-nucleon potentials with the inclusion of three-body forces and self-energy effects. Method: The superfluid states of neutron and nuclear matter are studied by solving the BCS gap equation for chiral nuclear potentials using the method suggested by Khodel, where the original gap equation is replaced by a coupled set of equations for the dimensionless gap function and a non-linear algebraic equation for the gap magnitude at the Fermi surface. Results: We have successfully applied Khodel's method to singlet (S) and coupled channel (SD and PF) cases in neutron and nuclear matter. Our calculations nicely agree with other ab-initio approaches, where available, and provide crucial inputs for applications in superfluid systems, i.e. the cooling process of Cassiopeia A.

Investigation of the rotation effects on high density matter in hybrid stars 20m
The equation of state (EOS) for the high density matter is still not clear and recent several observations indicate the restrictions of the EOSs, therefore theoretical studies should try to elucidate the EOSs in the high density and/or temperature. As there are many rapidly rotating neutron stars (pulsars), many theoretical studies try to take into account the effect of rotation[1]. We accordingly also try to take into account the effects of rotation in our study[2]. Then we find that our EOS is consistent with these observations[3]. We also see an important relation between radius and rotation. Ordinarily, the “radius” of the star is single-valued because we consider that the star is spherical. However, if the star is rapidly rotating, we have to pay attention to the different “radii”. Because of the effect of the rotation, a star deforms from a sphere to an ellipse. Therefore, we introduce two values, R_eq and R_p, which are the “equatorial radius” and the “polar radius”, respectively. If the rotation rate is 400 Hz or faster, the two radii are different. Therefore, we have to note the effects of rotation on rapidly rotating stars. References: [1] A. Kurkela et al., arXiv:1006.4062[astro-ph.HE]. [2] T. Endo, Phys. Rev. C 83, 068801 (2011). [3] T.

Hard exclusive electroproduction of photons and mesons at HERMES 20m
Hard exclusive leptoproduction of real photons (deeply virtual Compton scattering, DVCS) or mesons on nucleons is widely considered to be one of the most promising reactions that can provide information about the structure of the nucleon in the framework of generalized parton distributions (GPDs). During last years, DVCS has been extensively studied at the HERMES experiment through measurements of various cross-section asymmetries. HERMES has collected a wealth of data on scattering a 27.5 GeV longitudinally polarized electron/positron beam off unpolarized, longitudinally and transversely polarized hydrogen targets, as well as off unpolarized and longitudinally polarized deuterium targets. The collected data allow the measurement of a complete set of asymmetries with respect to beam charge, beam helicity and target polarization alone and also with respect to their different combinations. These asymmetries are sensitive to real and/or imaginary parts of different combinations of Compton form factors and can be used to constrain different GPDs. From measurements of exclusive meson production on hydrogen and deuterium targets complementary information about GPDs can be obtained. The study of the azimuthal distribution of the decay products via spin density matrix elements provides constraints on helicity amplitudes used to describe exclusive meson production. Recent results on the exclusive reactions from HERMES are presented.

The GPD physics program at COMPASS: present results and future perspectives 20m
An important component of the physics program at COMPASS (Common Muon Proton Apparatus for Structure and Spectroscopy) is the study of the nucleon structure through generalized parton distributions (GPDs). The GPDs correlate the momentum distributions of the quarks inside the nucleon with a transverse spatial distribution, hence providing a three dimensional imaging of the nucleon. Experimentally, those can be accessed by exclusive processes such as deeply virtual Compton scattering (DVCS), or hard exclusive meson production (HEMP). The study of the hard exclusive processes such as DVCS thanks to muon-proton scattering at COMPASS will provide unique information for the parameterization of the nucleon structure in terms of GPDs. In COMPASS II will be equipped with a 2.5 m liquid hydrogen target, on which will be sent a 160 GeV muon beam with high intensity and high polarization. The resulting kinematic range covered spans from 0.01 < xBj < 0.15 with a Q2 up to 10 GeV2, which yet remains unexplored. In addition to the usual COMPASS setup, a Time-Of-Flight recoil detector is installed to identify the recoiling proton and ensure exclusivity, as well as a new electromagnetic calorimeter to enlarge the photon angular acceptance. The most unique feature of COMPASS is the possibility to receive both mu+ and mu- beams. Measuring the cross section for both beam charge and spin states will grant important additional insight for the extraction of the GPD H. So far, a pilot run of one week with lower luminosity and a prototype recoil detector proved the capability of the COMPASS spectrometer to measure exclusive photon leptoproduction o the proton. The results of this test run will be presented. Later on, a test run of four weeks at nominal luminosity and with the complete proton detector has been recorded, and its analysis is underway. Preliminary results of this run will be presented. Besides DVCS, COMPASS is also capable to measure HEMP, which are particularly interesting for flavour separation in the GPDs extraction. The experiment already provided us with such data, namely mu p -> mu p rho0, which have been analyzed and successfully interpreted in the GPD framework developed by S. Goloskokov and P. Kroll. Those exclusive rho0 results will also be discussed.

DEEPLY VIRTUAL MESON PRODUCTION AT JEFFERSON LAB 20m
A longstanding goal in nuclear and particle physics has been to describe the three dimensional structure of the nucleon in terms of the quarks and gluon fields. In this regard, exclusive electron scattering experiments, in which all final state particles are measured, are important contributors. Examples are electron elastic scattering, deeply virtual Compton scattering (DVCS), and deeply virtual meson electroproduction (DVMP). The latter includes pseudoscalar mesons with intrinsic spin and parity JP=0-, such as π-, π0, π+ and η, and vector mesons, which have the same spin and parity as the photon, JP=1-, such as ρ-, ρ0, ρ+, ω and φ. Exclusive electron scattering reactions at high momentum transfers directly related to Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) of quarks and gluons. Most reactions studied, such as DVCS or vector meson electroproduction, are primarily sensitive to the chiral-even GPDs. Very little is known about the chiral-odd GPDs, except that HT becomes the transversity function h1 in the forward limit. The chiral-odd GPDs are difficult to access since hard subprocesses with the quark spin-flip are suppressed. It turns out that pseudoscalar meson electroproduction, and especially π0 and η production, were identified as especially sensitive to the parton helicity-flip subprocesses. Dedicated experiments to study Deeply Virtual Meson Production have been carried out in Hall B at Jefferson Lab. The cross sections and asymmetries of the exclusive pseudoscalar meson electroproduction processes in a very wide kinematic range of Q2, xB and t have been measured with CLAS. The comparison of these data with the theoretical models will help us to better understand the connection of these processes with the longitudinal and transverse GPDs. We view the work presented in this report as leading into the program of the Jefferson Lab 12 GeV upgrade. The increased energy and luminosity will allow us to study these processes at much higher Q2 and xB and perform Rosenbluth L/T separations of the cross sections.

Future precision studies of the DVCS process at JLab 20m
Generalized Parton Distribution (GPDs) functions describe the correlation between the spatial distribution of the quarks and its longitudinal momentum fraction. Their definition in the mid 1990’s has revolutionized our approach to the description of the internal structure of the nucleon. Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS) off the nucleon (γ ∗ N → γ N ) is the simplest process which is sensitive to the GPDs. A suite of approved DVCS experiments is currently in preparation in Hall A and Hall C at Jefferson Lab. These experiments are the third phase of a successful approach to precise (~5%) measurement of absolute cross-section. The first generation of experiments [1, 2] showed the importance of precise measurement of absolute cross-section. The second generation of experiments (data under analysis) will provide a complete separation of all terms making up the total cross-section. And the third generation of experiments (data to be taken with the 12 GeV beam at JLab) will provide measurements over an extended kinematic range. In this talk, I will review the upcoming DVCS precision measurement program. References [1] C. M. Camacho et al. [Jefferson Lab Hall A and Hall A DVCS Collaborations], Phys. Rev.

Timelike Compton scattering off the nucleon 20m
We present our studies of the Timelike Compton Scattering (TCS) process off the nucleon (gamma N -> N gamma* -> e+e-). At sufficiently large virtuality of the nal state photon, this reaction provides access, via a QCD factorization theorem, to the Generalized Partons Distributions (GPDs) of the nucleon. GPDs contain, in particular, informations about the correlations between the longitudinal momentum and the transverse spatial distributions of the partons inside the nucleon, which are curently largely unknown. Using several modellings of GPDs, we have calculated all single and double beam and target polarization observables, for proton and neutron targets. This is of particular interest in view of the coming 12 GeV JLab upgrade where a complete experimental TCS program can be envisaged, in complement of the currently approved DVCS (Deep Virtual Compton Scattering: eN to eNgamma ) program aiming at extracting GPDs.

Saturation effects in forward-forward dijet production in p+Pb collisions 30m
We study saturation effects in the production of forward dijets in proton-lead collisions at the LHC, using the framework of High Energy Factorization. Such congurations, with both jets produced in the forward direction, probe the gluon density of the lead nucleus at small longitudinal momentum fraction, and also limit the phase space for emissions of additional jets. We find a signicant suppression of the forward dijet azimuthal correlations in proton-lead versus proton-proton collisions, which we attribute to stronger saturation of the gluon density in the nucleus wavefunction compared to the proton. In order to minimize the model dependence of our predictions, we use two dierent extensions of the Balitsky-Kovchegov equation with sub-leading corrections.

On parton number fluctuations at various stages of the rapidity evolution 30m
Starting with the interpretation of parton evolution with rapidity as a branching-diffusion process, we describe the different kinds of fluctuations of the density of partons which affect the properties of QCD scattering amplitudes at moderately high energies. We then derive some of these properties as direct consequences of the stochastic picture. We get new results on the expression of the saturation scale of a large nucleus, and a modified geometric scaling valid at intermediate rapidities for dipole-dipole scattering.

Measuring the gluon distribution in nuclei at an Electron-Ion Collider 30m
Despite the successes of the HERA collider, where much information was gained on the structure of the nucleon, data on the structure of the nucleus at moderate-to-small \x remains elusive, as only fixed-target high-\x data currently exist. The small-\x region, however, is of great interest. The nucleon structure in this region is dominated by gluons which show a rapid rise with decreasing \x. At low-\x, this growth must be tamed and the gluon distribution will be saturated. This saturation phenomena is expected to be universal, appearing in both nucleons and nuclei. A knowledge of this regime is of vital importance to understanding the underlying physics which governs the initial conditions of heavy-ion collisions at both the LHC and RHIC, where particle production is dominated by gluons from this unknown region. However, only tantalising hints of this have been observed so far. Therefore, the construction of an Electron-Ion Collider (EIC), colliding polarised electrons with polarised protons and also a wide variety of nuclei, will allow an exploration of the region of small-\x in great detail (with luminosities 100x that of HERA), answering questions on both the spatial and momentum distributions of gluons and sea quarks in nuclei. In particular, the saturation region is more accessible in nuclei due to the amplification of the saturation scale with nuclear size ($Q_S$ $\propto$ A$^{1/3}$). In this paper I present the current status of measuring the gluon distribution in nuclei in $e$+A collisions at an EIC.

Top quark pair production cross section at LHC in ATLAS 20m
Measurements of the top quark production cross sections in proton-proton collisions with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider are presented. The measurement require no, one or two electrons or muons in the final state (single lepton, dilepton, hadronic channel). In addition, the decay modes with tau leptons are tested (channels with tau leptons). The main focus are measurements of differential spectra of ttbar final states, in particular, measurements that are able to constrain the modelling of additional parton radiation like the jet multiplicity distribution.

Top quark physics results from CMS 20m
Recent results on top quark properties and interactions are presented, obtained using data collected with the CMS experiment during the years 2011 and 2012 at 7 TeV and 8 TeV center-of-mass energy. Measurements are performed for the inclusive and differential top quark pair production cross sections in several top quark final states. The mass of the top quark is extracted using several methods, including indirect constraints from the measured cross section. Cross sections for the electroweak production of single top quarks in both t- and tW-channels are also measured, and limits are set on s-channel production. Further results include measurements of top quark properties, such as the W helicity in top decays, the top pair charge asymmetry, the top quark charge as well as the search for anomalous couplings in both pair and single top-quark production. The results are compared with predictions from the standard model.

Tau_jet resummation in Higgs production at NNLL + NLO 20m
Jet vetoes play a crucial role in the precise measurement of the Higgs properties at the LHC. The vetoes on additional jets introduce sensitivity to soft and collinear radiation and induce logarithms of the jet-veto variable that need to be resummed. In this talk, we consider Higgs production via gluon fusion with a veto on jet beam thrust, Tau_jet, which is a jet-based variable that can be used as an alternative to pT_jet in current experiments. Tau_jet denotes the maximum of the plus momenta (with respect to beam direction) assigned to identified jets with radius R. This is in contrast to considering the maximum pT of a jet. We present the resummed 0-jet Higgs production cross section for Tau_jet at next-to-next-to leading logarithmic (NNLL) accuracy, incorporating the NLO fixed order result. For small R, typically used in current experiments, the clustering logarithms arising from the correlated emissions within the beam and soft functions become important at NNLL. We compute the leading jet clustering corrections to the soft function anomalous dimension at O(alpha^2) and incorporate them in our resummed results.

Inclusive deep-inelastic scattering at HERA 20m
Recent results on deep-inelastic scattering at HERA are presented. The H1 and ZEUS experiments each have determined new measurements of the proton longitudinal structure function FL, making use of the HERA data recorded at reduced centre-of-mass energies. The results are in agreement with each other and with predictions derived from QCD fits. The region of high x is explored in a dedicated measurement by the ZEUS collaboration. All HERA inclusive data published up to now by H1 and ZEUS are combined, taking into account the experimental correlations between measurements. As a result, a combined dataset is obtained. It includes measurements of neutral current and charged current cross sections recorded at different centre-of-mass energies, spanning up to six orders of magnitude both in momentum transfer $Q^2$ and in Bjorken-x. The dataset is superior in precision compared to the previous HERA data combination which included a smaller fraction of the total integrated luminosity collected at HERA. Point-to-point uncorrelated uncertainties better than 1% are observed in certain kinematic regions.

A HERAPDF fit, evolved in leading order (LO) in alpha_s using the DGLAP evolution equations, is also presented. The LO PDF is particularly useful for Monte Carlo event generators based on LO matrix elements plus parton showers.

On a four dimensional formulation for dimensionally regulated amplitudes 20m
We propose a pure four-dimensional formulation (FDF) of the d-dimensional regularization of one-loop scattering amplitudes. In our formulation particles propagating inside the loop are rep- resented by massive internal states regulating the divergences. The latter obey Feynman rules containing multiplicative selection rules which automatically account for the effects of the extra- dimensional regulating terms of the amplitude. The equivalence between the FDF and the Four Dimensional Helicity scheme is discussed. We present explicit representations of the polarization and helicity states of the four-dimensional particles propagating in the loop. They allow for a complete, four-dimensional, unitarity-based construction of d-dimensional amplitudes. Generalized unitarity within the FDF does not require any higher-dimensional extension of the Clifford and the spinor algebra. Finally we show how the FDF allows for the recursive construction of d-dimensional one-loop integrands, generalizing the four-dimensional open-loop approach.

Search for heavy resonances in two-particle final states with leptons, jets and photons at CMS 20m
At the LHC, the production of heavy resonances decaying into a pair of particles can be probed at unprecedented centre-of-mass energies. Two-particle resonances are predicted in a variety of BSM models and can be searched for in a largely model-independent fashion. Results from searches for resonances in final states with leptons, jets and photons based on the full dataset of 20 fb-1 taken by the CMS detector in 2012 in proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV are presented. They are interpreted in terms of various theories of BSM physics ranging from generic heavy resonances such as the Z' to excited quarks or Randall-Sundrum gravitons. In absence of a signicant deviation from the expected SM background 95% CL limits are set on model parameters of the theories under study. The talk will put special emphasis on the most recent results.

Study of B meson systems and searches for new physics at Belle 25m
B meson decays provide various tests in the quark flavor structure of the standard model (SM) of particle physics, e.g. in the CP violation and the CKM quark-mixing structure.

In this presentation, we report recent results from Belle on the B meson systems, e.g. CP violations, CKM-related measurements in leptonic and semileptonic decays, and rare or exotic decays, and their interpretations in regard to searches for new physics beyond the SM. The results are based on the full Belle data sample of 711/fb obtained at the $\Upsilon(4S)$ resonance.

Evaluation of the MPD/NICA detector capabilities for studies of hyperons and mesons in dense nuclear matter 24m
Hyperons could provide essential signatures of the excited and compressed baryonic matter. Their identification and reconstruction should be one of the most important tasks of any experiment with heavy ions. The MPD/NICA start version's characteristics for measuring hyperons (\Lambda, \bar\Lambda, \Xi^-, \Omega^-) obtained on Monte Carlo simulated event samples of gold-gold collisions at NICA energies will be presented. It will be shown that the MPD start version will provide a good opportunity to perform such measurements and the current status of the event reconstruction algorithms and software is adequate for a study of the strangenessÂ production at NICA (achieved mass resolution 2-3 MeV/c^2 with high enough yields).

The HADES spectrometer installed at GSI Darmstadt is a second generation experiment designed to measure e+e- pairs (dielectrons) in the SIS∕BEVALAC energy regime. The main goal of the experiment is to measure electromagnetic emissivity of a compressed baryonic matter formed in course of heavy ion collisions and ultimately learn about in-medium hadron properties. For this purpose a dedicated programme focusing on systematic investigation of dielectron production in nucleon-nucleon, proton-nucleus and heavy ion reactions is on-going. A comparison of the nucleon-nucleon data to the one obtained in more complex systems allows for isolation of true in-medium effects. Furthermore, thank to excellent particle identification capabilities of the detector, investigations have also been extended to strangeness production, which at these energies is confined to a high density zone of the collision. The obtained data call for further systematic investigations at higher baryonic densities, where no dielectron and very limited data on strangeness exist. For this reason, experiments with HADES on the coming FAIR facility are under preparation. The existing device will be complemented by an electromagnetic calorimeter based on lead-glass modules. The calorimeter will enable to get in addition data on production of the pi0 and eta mesons via their two-photon decay. No respective data are presently available for the energy range 4--40 AGeV, with the consequence that such upgrade is needed to avoid interpretation of future dielectron data based solely on theoretical models. In the talk short overview of results obtained so far will be given. Perspective for future investigations within new FAIR project and the R&D effort to upgrade the spectrometer will be described in detail.

LHeC and eRHIC NON-SCALING FFAG DESIGN WITH ENERGY RECOVERY LINAC 24m
The future Electron Ion Colliders (EIC) LHeC and eRHIC will be able to collide electrons with ions in the LHeC case, or polarized electrons with polarized protons/He+3 or heavy ions in eRHIC. Ions have been already used in both colliders in the existing complex of accelerators of Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and Relativistic Heavy Ion Colliders (RHIC). Electron acceleration in both EIC's are based on a concept of Energy Recovery Linacs (ERL), where they will reach energies of 60 or 21 GeV for LHeC or eRHIC, respectively, and consequently decelerated to the initial linac energies almost completely recovering the energy. We present solution of two Non-Scaling Fixed Field Alternating Gradient arcs to enable electrons to make multiple passes through linac and to collide with ions at the highest energy.

Future opportunity with Germanium detectors at the Jinping underground Laboratory 24m
The China JinPing underground Laboratory (CJPL) is the deepest underground laboratory in operation in the world. It is located under the Jinping mountain, in the southwestern Chinese province of Sichuan. The experimental hall has an overburden of about 2400 m of rock. The measured muon flux in CJPL is around 60 muons per squaremeter per year. This extremely small muon flux make CJPL a perfect place to host low background experiments looking for really rare events like neutrino less double beta decay (0nuBB decay) or dark matter (DM) interactions. Since Ge76 can decay via double beta decay, several 0nuBB decay experiments used and use Germanium detectors (e.g. Heidelberg-Moscow, GERDA and Majorana). These fulfill also many experimental requirements for DM search, indeed numerous DM experiments use this technology (e.g. CDMS, Edelweiss and CDEX). The idea is to combine these two searches in a unique one Ton Germanium facility placed in CJPL. The sensitivity achievable was investigated. Research on detector development is performed at the Max-Planck-Institute for Physics in Munich. The goal is to use the same detector for both searches. Some results on events due to contaminations on the detector surfaces are also presented.

Studies of light mesons at COMPASS 20m
COMPASS is a fixed-target experiment at the CERN SPS aimed to study the structure and dynamics of hadrons. Data with negative (mostly $\pi^-$) hadron beams of $190\,\text{GeV}/c$ has been taken to study in particular light mesons. Their spectrum is investigated in diffractive dissociation reactions with final-states containing $\pi$ and $\eta$. At four-momentum transfers to the target between $0.1$ and $1.0\,\text{GeV}^2/c^2$ the properties of known resonances are studied, and new, possibly exotic, states are searched. Novel analysis techniques have been developed to also probe the sub-systems of the final-states. The structure of light mesons is studied in photo-production reactions induced by a pion beam scattering off solid targets. The radiative widths of the $a_2\left(1320\right)$ and, for the first time, that of the $\pi_2\left(1670\right)$ have been extracted from COMPASS data. In addition these reactions can be used to measure the polarizability of the $\pi$, and compare this to predictions of chiral perturbation theory.

Test of the OZI rule and spin alignment measurements with the COMPASS > experiment at CERN 20m
The Okubo-Zweig-Iizuka (OZI) rule states that processes with disconnected quark lines are suppressed. The production of phi mesons from non-strange hadrons is predicted to be suppressed w.r.t. omega by a factor 4.2•10^-3. Violations are often interpreted as gluonic intermediate states or as evidence for hidden strangeness in the nucleon. The reaction pp->pVp (V= omega, phi) has been studied with the COMPASS spectrometer in 2008 and 2009, using a 190 GeV/c proton beam impinging on a liquid hydrogen target. The cross section ratio was measured and a significant OZI violation factor of ~4 was found. Its kinematic dependence of the Feynman x_F and the M(p V) mass is discussed in terms of diffractive production of baryon resonances in competition with central production. The M(p omega) spectrum has a rich structure, indicating the importance of baryon resonances decaying into p omega, in sharp contrast to the structureless M(p phi) spectrum. The spin density matrix element rho_00 of the vector mesons in selected reference frames provides another handle to distinguish the contributions of these two major reaction types. Again, dependences of the alignment on x_F and M(p V) are found. Outside the resonant region, the OZI violation factor is ~8, independently of x_F.

Medium-heavy nuclei from lattice quantum chromodynamics 20m
Mass and structure of 16^O and 40^Ca are studied on the basis of quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the fundamental theory of the strong interaction. We derive two-nucleon potentials from lattice QCD simulations by the recently developed HAL QCD method. Then we apply the results to the structure of medium-heavy nuclei (16^O and 40^Ca) using the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock theory. We find that these two nuclei are bound and possess shell structures for the heavy quark mass corresponding to the pseudo-scalar meson mass of 469 MeV (the nucleon mass of 1161 MeV). Obtained total binding energies, 33 MeV for 16^O and 108 MeV for 40^Ca, are rather smaller than the experimental data, which is due to the heavy quark mass in our lattice QCD simulations. Realistic results will be obtained in the near future by using the full QCD configurations currently generated by K-computer with the pion mass 135 MeV and the lattice volume (10 fm)^3. The present study demonstrates that our approach is quite promising for investigating various properties of atomic nuclei starting from QCD.

Measurement of spin density matrix elements in $Lambda(1520)$ photoproduction with the CLAS detector 20m
The photoproduction reaction $\gamma p \to K^+ \Lambda(1520)$ is a topic of interest due to possible interference with the $\gamma p \to \phi p$ reaction and possible heavy excited nucleon decay to $K^+ \Lambda(1520)$. In particular, an unexplained bump has been seen in measurements of the differential cross-section and provoked theoretical work. Information about the production mechanism of this reaction can be gained from studying the angular distribution of the $\Lambda(1520)$ decay products. This distribution is parameterized by a set of spin density matrix elements and reveals the polarization of the $\Lambda(1520)$. Previous measurements of the decay distribution have been limited by low statistics, small angular coverage, and coarse binning. New, high-statistics measurements of the $\Lambda(1520)$ spin density matrix elements, using the $\Lambda(1520) \to K^- p$ decay mode, from the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer at Jefferson Lab are presented here.

Measurement of $\sigma_{1/2}$ and $\sigma_{3/2}$ in Photoproduction of $\pi^{0}\pi^{0}$ and $\eta\pi^{0}$ Pairs off Neutrons in the Nucleon Resonance Region 20m
Meson photoproduction offers unique possibilities to investigate the nucleon and its excited states. Double meson photoproduction has the great advantage of enabling access to higher lying nucleon resonances that have no significant decay mode to the nucleon ground state via photoproduction of single mesons. Among the different meson pairs $2\pi^{0}$ is in particular interesting as non-resonant background terms as pion-poles or Kroll-Rudermann are strongly suppressed because photons couple only weakly to neutral pions. In addition, photoproduction of $\eta\pi^{0}$ meson pairs is a very selective decay channel since the isoscalar properties of the $\eta$ forbid its production in cross-over $N*\to\Delta*$ transitions. Whereas for the reactions on the proton a lot of experimental data is available, data for the reactions on the neutron is sparse. In addition, even though in recent years much progress in the theoretical description of the results was achieved, the available models are still very controversial even at low energies where only few resonances contribute. The measurement of single and double polarization will help to reveal the different resonance contributions and thereby serve as an important input for the theoretical description of the structure and the excitation spectrum of the nucleon.\\ This work presents results of the helicity dependent cross sections of photoproduction of $\pi^{0}\pi^{0}$ and $\eta\pi^{0}$ meson pairs off quasi-free protons and neutrons in the second and third nucleon resonance region.

Helicity Dependent Cross Sections in $\eta$ Photoproduction off Quasi-Free Protons and Neutrons 20m
The identification of the relevant effective degrees of freedom of QCD is the most important step in order to understand the structure of the nucleon. Since the resonance contributions to the excitation spectrum are often broad and overlapping, the comparison of experimental data and theoretical models is rather difficult. Single and double polarization observables allow the determination of the quantum numbers of the contributing resonances and are therefore an ideal tool to investigate the excitation spectrum of the nucleon.\\ A very selective channel in this context is the photoproduction of $\eta$ mesons. Due to the isoscalar property of the $\eta$, $\Delta$ resonances can not decay to the ground state by emitting a $\eta$. Furthermore P$_{11}$(1440) and D$_{13}$(1520) resonances have a very small branching ratio into the N$\eta$ final state (close to threshold high orbital angular momenta are strongly suppressed). Especially, the investigation of photoproduction of $\eta$ mesons is very interesting as the resulting cross section on the neutron shows a large resonance-like structure, beyond the dominating S$_{11}$(1535), which is not seen on the proton.\\ In this work we will present results of the double polarization observable E and the corresponding helicity dependent cross sections $\sigma_{1/2}$ (photon and target spin anti-parallel) and $\sigma_{3/2}$ (photon and target spin parallel) of $\eta$-photoproduction off quasi-free protons and neutrons which will help to constrain the origin and quantum numbers of this unknown structure.

Polarization Observables $T$ and $F$ in Single $\mathbf{\pi^0}$ and $\mathbf{\eta}$-Photoproduction off Quasi-Free Nucleons 20m
Meson photoproduction has developed into a powerful tool to study the nucleons excitation spectrum and test effective quark models which operate in the non-perturbative regime of QCD. An insight into the $J^P$ configurations and isospin decompositions of the contributing resonances is gained by measuring a minimal set of polarization observables on both the proton and the neutron. Single $\pi^0$ and $\eta$-photoproduction off a transversally polarized D-butanol target has been measured with circularly polarized bremsstrahlung photons generated by the MAMI-C electron microtron. With the nearly $4\pi$ acceptance of the combined Crystal Ball/TAPS setup the double polarization observable $F$ and the target asymmetry $T$ can be extracted for the first time for polarized, quasi-free neutrons over a wide energy and angular range.

Measurements of the Form Factor in VPgamma* transitions and study of the eta-->pi+pi-pi0 Dalitz plot at KLOE 20m
The KLOE experiment has collected 2.5 fb-1 at the peak of the phi resonance at the e+e- collider DAPHNE in Frascati. A new beam crossing scheme, allowing for a reduced beam size and increased luminosity, is operating at DAPHNE. The upgraded KLOE-2 detector is successfully rolled in inside this new interaction region and is ready to acquire collision data. The V-->Pgamma Dalitz decays, associated to internal conversion of the photon into a lepton pair, are not well described by the Vector Meson Dominance (VMD) models, as in the case of the process omega --> pi0 mu+ mu-, measured by the NA60 collaboration. The only existing data on phi --> eta e+ e- come from the SND experiment, which has measured the Mee invariant mass distribution on the basis of 213 events. At KLOE, a detailed study of this decay has been performed using both eta-->pipipi final states. Simple analysis cuts provide clean signal events, with a residual background contamination of 2-3%. With the fully neutral eta decay channel, we obtain the measurement of the branching fraction for the process phi --> eta e+ e-, with an accuracy improved by a factor of five with respect to the previous most precise measurement, and of the slope of the transition form factor, which is in agreement with VMD expectations. We have also studied the decay phi --> pi0 e+ e-, where no data are available on transition form factor. Dedicated analysis cuts strongly reduce the main background component of Bhabha events to ~20%, leading to ~4000 signal events in the whole KLOE data set. We have also obtained a new, precise results on the isospin-violating decay eta-->pi+pi-pi0, sensitive to the light-quark mass ratio. The first study, overcoming in precision previous results published in year 2008-2010, was suggested by the theoretical work: Leutwyler, Mod.Phys.Lett. A28 (2013) 1360014, aiming to a better determination of the light-quark mass ratio through the dispersive analysis of the eta--> 3 pi decay.

ALICE results on vector meson photoproduction in ultra-peripheral p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions 30m
Pb nuclei, accelerated at LHC, are sources of strong electromagnetic fields that can be used to measure photon-induced interactions in a new kinematic regime. These interactions can be studied in ultra-peripheral p-Pb and Pb-Pb collisions where impact parameters are larger than the sum of nuclear radii and hadronic interactions are strongly suppressed. Heavy quarkonium photoproduction is of particular interest since it is sensitive to gluon distributions in target hadrons. The ALICE Collaboration has studied J/psi and psi(2S) photoproduction in ultra-peripheral Pb-Pb collisions and exclusive J/psi photoproduction off protons in ultra-peripheral p-Pb collisions at the LHC. Implications for the study of gluon density distributions and nuclear gluon shadowing will be discussed. Recent ALICE results on rho0 photoproduction will be also presented.

Anisotropic flow from hard partons in ultra-relativistic nuclear collisions 30m
Anisotropies of the azimuthal hadron distributions measured in nuclear collisions at highest energies carry information about the anisotropies of collective transverse expansion. Through a comparison of these data with hydrodynamic simulations one hopes to extract transport coefficients of the hot nuclear matter. It is widely accepted that the flow anisotropies have their root in strong inhomogeneities within the hot matter shortly after the impact. We present a 3D hydrodynamic simulation where anisotropies are generated by momentum deposited from hard patrons during the evolution of the fireball. We analyse to what extent this mechanism can generate the observed anisotropic flow.

In addition, the production of heavy flavour in association with a W or Z boson represents is sensitive to the parton density functions and to the modeling heavy≠quark flavour production mechanisms. Measurement of the transverse momentum of the Z boson is sensitive to soft resummation effects for small momentumtransfers and to multiple hard jet emissions for large momentum transfers, probing QCD in a unique way.

One of the key topics in the physics program of the ILC is the precision measurement of the couplings of the Higgs boson. The two main production modes, ZH production and W boson fusion, provide access to all major Higgs boson decay modes with relatively small backgrounds. The ZH process provides the possibility for a model-independent tagging of Higgs production, allowing measurement of absolute branching ratios and the observation of invisible and other exotic decays. At higher energies, the W fusion process gives high rates for precision measurements and allows the model-independent determination of the Higgs boson width and the individual Higgs couplings. At energies of 500 GeV and above, rarer production modes provide direct access to the top Yukawa coupling in ttH events and the measurement of the Higgs self coupling in double Higgs production. This contribution will provide an overview of the Higgs physics program at ILC, with results from full-simulation studies in the ILC detector concepts.

Top Quark Precision Physics at Linear Colliders 20m
The future precision studies of the Standard Model require excellent knowledge of the top quark mass, to an accuracy of 100 MeV or better. A threshold scan in e+e- annihilation enables a precise measurement in theoretically well-defined mass schemes. The measurement requires a combination of precise QCD calculations, excellent detection efficiency and recognition of top quark events, and excellent control of the initial beam energy and profile. Above the production threshold, the efficient identification to top pair events combined with polarized beams provides the potential to extract the form factors for the top quark couplings with high precision and in a model-independent way, resulting in excellent sensitivity to physics beyond the standard model. We will provide an overview of top physics at linear colliders based on results from full-simulation studies of top quark pair production in the detectors proposed for ILC and CLIC.

The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is an attractive option for a future multi-TeV linear electron-positron collider, offering the potential for a rich precision physics programme, combined with sensitivity to a wide range of new phenomena. The physics reach of CLIC has been studied in the context of three distinct centre-of-mass energy stages, 350 GeV, 1.4 TeV and 3.0 TeV. This staged scenario provides the ideal environment for precise studies of the properties of the ~125 GeV Higgs boson. Operation at 350 GeV allows the couplings and width of the Higgs boson to be determined in a model-independent manner through the study of the Higgs-strahlung and WW-fusion processes. Operation at higher centre-of-mass energies provides high statistics for even more precise measurements and the potential to study the top Yukawa coupling and even the Higgs boson self-coupling. In this talk we explore the potential of the CLIC Higgs physics programme, based on full simulation studies of a wide range of final states. The evolution of the physics sensitivity with centre-of-mass energy is presented in terms of model-independent coupling fits and the constrained kappa fits employed at the LHC.

Parity-Violating Electron Scattering: Recent Results and Future Prospects 30m
The technique of measuring tiny single-spin asymmetries in the scattering of longitudinally polarized relativistic electrons off unpolarized fixed targets is well-established. These measurements, which exploit the non-conservation of parity symmetry by the neutral weak interaction, are being used in a variety of applications to address fundamental questions in nuclear and particle physics. One thrust over the past two decades has been the measurements of nucleon neutral weak form factors at intermediate four-momentum transfer 0.1 < Q^2 < 1 (GeV/c)^2 , which provides information about the role of virtual strange quarks on the charge and current distributions inside nucleons. A more recent topic is the elastic neutral weak amplitude at very low Q^2 from scattering off a heavy spineless nucleus, which is sensitive to the presence of a neutron skin and provides model-independent information about the density dependence of the symmetry energy in dense nuclear matter. Finally, we discuss the neutral current elastic amplitude at very low Q^2 off protons and electrons and in the DIS regime off deuterium, which allows precision measurements of the weak mixing angle at low energy and is thus sensitive to new physics at the TeV scale, in a manner complementary to collider searches. The physics implications of recent results, potential measurements from experiments designed to exploit the 12 GeV upgrade of Jefferson Laboratory, as well as new ideas at future facilities are discussed.

The Qweak Experiment: First Determination of the Weak Charge of the Proton 20m
The Qweak experiment, which completed a two-year data taking phase in May 2012 at Jefferson Lab, has made the first determination of the weak charge of the proton. We access the weak charge by measuring the parity-violating asymmetry in the elastic scattering of polarized electrons from protons at a small squared four-momentum transfer of Q^2 = 0.025 (GeV/c)^2. Due to the interference of the photon and Z-boson exchange processes, this asymmetry is proportional to the weak charge of the proton at low momentum transfers. We determined a value for the asymmetry of Aep = -279 +/- 35 (statistics) +/- 31 (systematics) ppb, which is the smallest and most precise asymmetry ever measured in polarized electron-proton scattering. To achieve the precision necessary to measure this small asymmetry, we integrated events from eight fused silica detectors by scattering the high-current polarized electron beam on a 35 cm long liquid hydrogen target. Based on only 4% of the total data collected in the experiment, and by incorporating earlier results from earlier parity-violating electron scattering experiments, we find a value for the weak charge of the proton of QpW = 0.064 +/- 0.012 in agreement with predictions of the Standard Model of particle physics. The projected precision for the full data set will result in sensitivity to new physics at the TeV scale, complementing searches at the Large Hadron Collider. In addition to the search for physics beyond the Standard Model, we will measure parity-violating and parity-conserving observables using longitudinally and transversely polarized electron beam, in elastic and inelastic scattering channels, on proton and aluminum targets by observing both electrons and pions in the final state. These precise measurements will allow us to constrain various relevant models in hadronic and nuclear physics.

We report on the measurement of parity-violating (PV) asymmetries in the deep inelastic scattering (DIS) and nucleon resonance regions using inclusive scattering of longitudinally polarized electrons off an unpolarized deuterium target. The effective weak couplings C_2q are accessible through the DIS measurements. Here we report a measurement of the PV asymmetry, which yields a determination of 2C_2u - C_2d with an improved precision of a factor of five relative to previous results. These results indicate evidence with 95% confidence that the 2C_2u - C_2d is non-zero. This experiment also provides the first parity-violation data covering the whole resonance region, which provide constraints on nucleon resonance models. Finally, the program to measure PV-DIS at JLab in the 12 GeV era will be discussed using the Solenoidal Large Intensity Device (SoLID).

Latest results from MEG and status of MEG-II 30m
Within the Standard Model (SM), in spite of neutrino oscillations, the flavor of charged leptons is conserved in very good approximation, and therefore charged Lepton Flavor Violation (cLFV) is expected to be unobservable. On the other hand, most new physics models predict cLFV within the experimental reach, and processes like the mu -> e gamma decay became standard probes for physics beyond the SM. The MEG experiment, at the Paul Scherrer Institute (Switzerland), searches for the mu to e gamma decay, down to a Branching Ratio of about 5 x 10^-13, exploiting the most intense continuous muon beam in the world and innovative detectors. In this talk I will present the latest results from MEG, and the status of its upgrade (MEG-II), aiming at an improvement of the sensitivity by one order of magnitude within this decade.

The Mu2e Experiment at Fermilab 20m
The Mu2e Experiment at Fermilab will search for coherent, neutrino-less conversion of muons into electrons in the field of a nucleus with a sensitivity improvement of a factor of 10,000 over existing limits. Such a lepton flavor-violating reaction probes new physics at a scale inaccessible with direct searches at either present or planned high energy colliders. The experiment both complements and extends the current search for muon decay to electron+gamma at MEG and searches for new physics at the LHC. We will present the physics motivation for Mu2e, the design of the muon beamline and the detector, and the current status of the experiment.

Search for Dark Matter at CMS 20m
Searches at the LHC are complementary to direct detection experiments. Very low masses and several DM properties can only be studied at the LHC. In this very recent field at accelerators, several analyses were developed and performed with 2012 data. Final states with Monojet, monophoton, and monolepton are all considered, as well as dark matter particles that are produced in association with top quarks. The interpretation of these results as a WIMP are discussed.

Searches for dark matter and extra dimensions with the ATLAS detector 20m
Different approaches to finding evidence for dark matter at the LHC are presented. These include searches for events with large missing transverse momentum and a single jet, photon or W/Z boson. Searches for hidden sectors in events with long-lived particles resulting in displaced hadronic vertices or lepton-jet signatures are also reported. Finally, studies sensitive to the presence of extra spatial dimensions are described, as for example classical and quantum black holes and other non-resonant phenomena. Results from sqrt(s) = 8 TeV data taking are presented.

Exploration of Physics Beyond the Standard Model at the International Linear Collider 20m
Although the LHC experiments have put strong limits on coloured supersymmetric states, it is still possible that electroweakly interacting supersymmetric particles have masses in the range 100-200 GeV. Even outside of supersymmetry, candidates for the particle of dark matter may have masses in this range unconstrained by LHC data. In e+e- annihilation, the low backgrounds, precise knowledge of the initial-state beams, and sensitivity to small energy depositions provides discovery potential complementary to the LHC, for instance in cases with small mass differences. These conditions are also ideal for the precise measurements of new particle states required to elucidate the structure of the underlying model in scenarios where colored sparticles are discovered during the 14 TeV run of the LHC, which could hint to the existence of lower-mass electroweak states. This contribution will report the current status of studies for the prospects of measurements of WIMPs, Higgsinos and other light electroweak states at the International Linear Collider, with results based on simulation of the detectors proposed for the ILC. It also discusses how the combined observations from LHC and ILC can be used to determine MSSM parameters in models with large numbers of free parameters.

Prospects for Beyond Standard Model Physics at CLIC 20m
The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is an attractive option for a future multi-TeV linear electron-positron collider. A staged construction in several centre-of-mass energy steps from a few hundred GeV up to 3 TeV is foreseen. At high energies, CLIC provides sensitivity to a wide range of phenomena beyond the Standard Model through direct observation of new particles and precision measurements. An overview of these opportunities is given in this presentation. CLIC is in particular well suited for the measurement of weakly interacting states due to the clean experimental conditions and low backgrounds compared to hadron colliders. Most studies are based on full detector simulations using Geant4 and considering pileup from gamma gamma -> hadrons interactions. The production of supersymmetric particles like sleptons and gaugions was studied in detail in several different models. The scenarios discussed in this presentation include an extended Higgs sector, Z' physics and other models.

Detecting the long-distance structure of the X(3872) 25m
We study the X(3872) to D bar{D} pi^0 decay within a molecular D bar{D}^* picture for the X(3872) state. This mode is more sensitive to the long-distance structure of the X(3872) resonance than its J/\psi\pi\pi and J/\psi 3pi$decays, which are mainly controlled by the details of the X(3872) wave function at short distances. We show that the D bar{D} final state interaction can be important, and that a precise measurement of this partial decay width can provide valuable information on the interaction strength between D^(*)bar{D}^{(*)} charm mesons. Speaker: Mr Carlos Hidalgo-Duque (Instituto de Física Corpuscular (IFIC), Centro Mixto CSIC-Universidad de Valencia) • 16:55 PERSPECTIVE STUDIES OF CHARMONIUM AND EXOTICS ABOVE DD\bar THRESHOLD 25m The study of strong interactions and hadron matter in the process of antiproton-proton annihilation seems to be a challenge nowadays. The research of charmonium cc\bar , charmed hybrid cc\bar g and tetraquark cq(cq\prime)\bar ( q, and q\prime = u, d, s) spectra and their main characteristics (mass, width, branching ratio) in experiments using high quality antiproton beam with momentum up to 15 GeV/c, is promising to understand the dynamics of quark interactions at small distances. Charmonium and exotics spectroscopy is a good testing tool for the theories of strong interactions: QCD in perturbative and non-perturbative regimes, LQCD, QCD inspired potential models and phenomenological models. Nowadays the scalar 1P1, 1D2 and vector 3PJ, 3DJ charmonium states and higher laying scalar 1S0 and vector 3S1 charmonium states are poorly investigated. The domain above threshold is badly studied. According to the contemporary quark models namely in this domain, the existence of charmed hybrids with exotic (JPC = 0--, 0+-, 1-+, 2+-, 3-+) and non-exotic (JPC=0-+, 1+-, 2-+, 1++, 1--, 2--, 2++, 3+-) quantum numbers and tetraquarks is expected [1 - 4]. A prediction that distinguishes tetraquark states containing a cc\bar pair from conventional charmonia is possible existence of multiplets which include members with non-zero charge cu(cd)\bar , strangeness cd(cs)\bar , or both cu(cs)\bar . The detailed analysis of the spectrum of charmonium, charmed hybrids and tetraquarks with hidden charm and strangeness was carried out, and attempts to interpret a great quantity of experimental data above the DD\bar threshold were considered. New higher lying states of charmonium, charmed hybrids and tetraquarks are expected to exist in the mass region above the DD\bar threshold. But much more data on different decay modes are needed for deeper analysis. These data can be derived directly from the experiments with high quality antiproton beam. A special attention is given to the new XYZ states with hidden charm discovered recently [3 - 6]. Their interpretation is far from being obvious nowadays [2 - 4]. The experimental data from different collaborations like BES, Belle, BaBar, LHCb, CLEO, CDF were carefully studied. Some of these states can be interpreted as charmonium [7, 8] and tetraquarks [9, 10] in the framework of the combined approach proposed earlier [11, 12]. It has been shown that charge/neutral tetraquarks must have neutral/charge partners with mass values which differ by few tens of MeV. This treatment coincides with hypothesis proposed by Maiani and Polosa [13, 14]. It seems to be a promising approach and needs to be carefully verified in experiments using high quality antiproton beam with momentum ranging up to 15 GeV/c. [1] W.

Over the years BaBar has extensively studied these states in B meson decays, initial state radiation processes and two photon reactions. We report new and additional studies on some of these states performed using the entire data sample collected by BaBar in e+e- collisions at center of mass energies near 10.58 GeV/c^2. Among these, the study of the process B -> J/psi phi K with a search for the X(4140) and X(4270) in their decays to J/psi phi, and a search for charged charmonium-like state Zc(3900)^+ in the decay Y(4260) -> J/spi pi+pi-. Speaker: Elisabetta Prencipe (FZ Jülich) • 17:45 Heavy flavor spectroscopy and b-decay properties with the ATLAS detector 25m ATLAS has performed searches for heavy hadrons, with results including the first observation of the chi_b(3P) Bottomonium states. New results in this program are discussed, including searches for excited b-hadrons and new decay modes of b-hadrons as well as the bottomonium counterpart of X(3872). We also review ATLAS studies of B-hadron decays, including the measurement of the parity violating asymmetry parameter alpha_b in Lambda_b -> Lambda J/psi, obtained from the study of angular correlations in the p pi- mu+ mu- final state. The measurement is compared to predictions based on perturbative QCD and heavy quarks effective theory. Speaker: Mr Andreas Korn (London UC) • 18:10 Latest results on Spectroscopy from LHCb 25m Decays of b-hadrons to light quarks allow spectroscopy measurements with a well defined initial state.

The production rates divided by spin multiplicity showed a clear dependence on the exponential of baryon masses. Among them, ¥Lambda(1116) and ¥Lambda(1520) seemed to have higher production rates. Some theorists suggested diquark correlation in ¥Lambda may explain these phenomena, since ¥Lambda is spin-flavor singlet, and correlation between u and d quark is expected. However, the statistics and particle identification power were not sufficient to be conclusive. In addition, charmed baryons may contain stronger diquark component since color-spin interaction between the charm quark and light quarks is suppressed due to the heavy mass of charm quark. Thus it is interesting to measure production rates of charmed baryons. Recently, Belle experiment has collected huge number of baryon production with excellent particle identification. We have studied production rates of hyperons and charmed baryons using Belle data to confirm previous observation. In addition, we have performed the first systematic study of production rates of charmed baryons. We have observed very interesting features both for hyperons and charmed baryons. In this presentation, we'll report preliminary results of our analysis. Speaker: Dr Masayuki Niiyama (Kyoto Univ.) • 16:50 Heavy flavour production with the ATLAS experiment 20m ATLAS has a wide programme to study the production cross section and decay properties of particles with beauty, as well as charmonium and bottomonium states. This presentation will cover ATLAS results in the domain of charmonium production, including J/psi, psi(2s) and chi_c states, B+ production, and updates on the D(*) meson cross-section analysis. The analyses discussed include double-differential production cross-section measurements of the J/psi, psi(2S) and P-wave charmonium states chi_cJ, extending upon previous measurements in precision and kinematic reach. Prompt and non-prompt modes are distinguished, as well as J/Psi vs Psi(2s) and the contribution to J/Psi production from chi_c feed-down. Alongside the latter analysis, a competitive measurement of the branching fraction B+/- -> chi_c1 + K+/- was also performed. Results of these measurements are compared with the latest theoretical predictions from a variety of theoretical approaches. Speaker: Mr Roger Jones (Lancaster) • 17:10 Associated vector boson plus prompt charmonium and di-charmonium production at the ATLAS experiment 20m We present evidence of associated vector boson+prompt J/psi production and measure its production rate. This is a key observable to further the understanding of quarkonium production mechanisms. We estimate the relative contributions to the signal from single and double parton scattering (DPS) and discuss possible implications of this novel final state for study of multiple parton interactions. We also review the cross-section measurement of double-J/psi production, separating the prompt-prompt, prompt-non-prompt and non-prompt di-J/psi production and estimating also the DPS contribution. Single parton scattering cross-sections are compared to cutting-edge theoretical calculations in the colour singlet and colour octet formalisms.

We begin with an overview of previous critical studies performed in the quenched approximation, for which we add analysis using a new vertex, the Kizilersu-Pennington (KP) vertex, developed for unquenched studies. In these unquenched critical studies, we will present the fermion and boson propagators in the non-perturbative region and the measure the performance of the KP vertex. The dynamically generated fermion masses using a renormalized unquenched system of equations is compared for two hybrid model vertices. Speaker: Dr A. Kizilersu (CSSM-University of Adelaide) • 17:50 Diffractive and Exclusive measurements at CMS 20m Recent CMS measurements of diffractive and exclusive processes will be presented, based on p-p and p-Pb data from Run 1 of the LHC. These include measurements of single and double diffractive cross sections, photon-induced processes, and low-mass Central Exclusive Production. These results are compared to other measurements and to theoretical predictions implemented in various Monte Carlo simulations. Total inelastic cross section results will also be discussed, including the first measurements in p-Pb collisions at sqrt(s_NN) = 5.02TeV.

About 4 fb-1 of data were collected, running with a 2.01 GeV stored lepton beam of alternating charge impinging on an internal hydrogen gas target. The analysis effort has progressed signicantly with data spanning an accepted kinematic range of (0.5 < Q2 < 2.2) (GeV/c)2. Meanwhile, a full Monte Carlo simulation now allows for integration of expected rates given variable cuts while accounting for time-dependent backgrounds and detector effects. This talk will review the current status and prospects. Speaker: Prof. Norair Akopov (Alikhanyan National Science Laboratory (Yerevan Physics Institute)) • 16:50 Measuring Luminosity at OLYMPUS 20m The OLYMPUS experiment seeks to provide a high-precision measurement (<1% error) of the positron-proton versus electron-proton elastic scattering cross section ratio. This requires fine control of all systematic uncertainties, including the calculation of the luminosity. For this purpose, multiple independent subsystems were operated alongside the main spectrometer during data taking to allow for empirical determination of the luminosity as a function of time. An approximate value is computed based on parameters of the lepton beam and gaseous target, while small-angle elastic scatters of known cross section are counted by two sets of ionization-based detector systems. The most precise value comes from counting coincidences of high-rate (pure QED) lepton-lepton scatters using a pair of calorimetric lead fluoride Cherenkov detectors. Speaker: Mr Dmitry Khaneft (Johannes Gutenberg-Universität, Mainz, Germany) • 17:10 The muonic hydrogen Lamb shift and proton radius from effective field theories 20m We obtain a model independent expression for the muonic hydrogen Lamb shift. The hadronic effects are controlled by the chiral theory, which allows for their model independent determination. We give their complete expression including the pion and Delta particles. Out of this analysis and the experimental measurement of the muonic hydrogen Lamb shift we determine the electromagnetic proton radius:$r_p=0.8432(16)$fm. This number is at 6.4$\sigma$variance with respect to the CODATA value. The parametric control of the uncertainties allows us to obtain a model independent determination of the error, which is dominated by hadronic effects. Speaker: Mr Pineda Antonio (Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona) • 17:30 Elastic Electron and Muon Scattering Experiment Off the Proton at PSI 20m While consistent results for the charge radius of the proton have been extracted from elastic electron-scattering data and through the spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, recent high-precision studies of muonic hydrogen found notably smaller values for the charge radius. This so-called proton-radius puzzle raises questions ranging from experimental and methodological issues to physics beyond the standard model. The puzzle certainly calls for new measurements. The MUon proton Scattering Experiment (MUSE) at the Paul Scherrer Institute is being developed to provide elastic scattering data off the proton with electron- and muon beams of positive and negative charge. Each of the four sets of data will allow the extraction of the proton charge radius; in combination, the data test possible differences of the electron and muon interactions and additionally two-photon exchange effects. The experiment will cover a four-momentum-transfer range from 0.002 to 0.08 GeV^2. An overview of the proposed experiment will be presented.

It will use intense cooled antiproton beams with a momentum between 1.5 GeV/c and 15 GeV/c. The PANDA detector is a state-of-the-art internal target detector allowing the detection and identification of neutral and charged particles almost in the whole solid angle. One of the major goals of the PANDA experiment is the comprehensive study of hadron properties in the annihilation process. The PANDA experiment will provide the unique possibility to measure properties of hadrons precisely, including charmonium, glueballs, and exotic states. Charmonium states with different quantum numbers can be produced durectly. PANDA will measure with high precision the parameters of the resonances in formation mode, making use of the excellent momentum resolution Δp/p=10^{−4}-10^{−5} of the HESR beam. The PANDA experiment will also give the opportunity to study hyperon production, including spin properties and CP violation in the decays. The production of hyperon pairs in the same event in the annihilation process help to reduce the systematic errors. Nucleon Structure will be also studied from electromagnetic processes. The determination of the moduli of electric G_E and magnetic G_M form factors in the time-like domain is for example one of the important targets of the PANDA experiment. Speaker: Dr Vasily Mochalov (IHEP, Protvino, Russia) • 18:10 Physics opportunities in electron-hadron collisions at the future eRHIC 20m Our understanding of the structure of nucleons is described by the properties and dynamics of quarks and gluons in the theory of quantum chromodynamics. With advancements in theory and the development of phenomenological tools we are preparing for the next step in subnuclear tomographic imaging at a future electron-ion collider. A large range of center-of-mass energies ($\sqrt{s}\approx 77 - 141$GeV) in combination with extremely high luminosities$(\sim10^{33}$cm$^{-2}$s$^{-2})$will open a unique opportunity for very high precision measurements, allowing for a detailed investigation of the proton and nuclear hadronic substructure in multi-dimensions. In addition, highly polarized nucleon ($P\approx 70\%$) and electron ($P\approx 80\%$) beams can probe the parton polarizations in previously unexplored kinematic regions and with unprecedented accuracy, as well as address the role of orbital angular momentum with respect to the nucleon spin. This talk will summarize the eRHIC physics case for electron-proton collisions, the expected impact over the current knowlege and some of the technical challenges of such a versatile experimental endeavor.

In particular, measurements of elliptic and higher order collective flow imprinted on the azimuthal angle distributions of low-pT particles directly probe the strongly-coupled dynamics of the quark gluon plasma and test hydrodynamic model descriptions of its evolution. The large acceptance of detectors like ATLAS have made it possible to measure flow event-by-event and to determine the correlations between different harmonics. Recent measurements of low-pT particle production and multi-particle correlations in proton-lead collisions have shown features similar to the collective flow observed in Pb+Pb collisions. Results will be presented from a variety of single and multi-particle measurements in Pb+Pb and proton-Pb collisions that probe the collective dynamics of the quark gluon plasma and possibly provide evidence for collectivity in even small systems. Speaker: Mr Krzysztof Wozniak (Cracow) • 17:00 Transverse momentum distributions of charged particles and identified hadrons in p-Pb collisions at the LHC 20m The transverse momentum distributions (pT) of charged particles and identied hadrons in p-Pb collisions at sqrt(sNN) = 5.02 TeV have been measured by ALICE at the LHC. Charged-particle tracks are reconstructed at mid-rapidity over a large momentum range 0.15 < pT < 50 GeV/c. Light-flavoured hadrons and resonances are identied in the various momentum ranges from 0.15 GeV/c up to 15 GeV/c by using specic energy loss (dE/dx), time-of-flight, topological particle-identication and invariant-mass reconstruction techniques. pT spectra are measured in the charged particle multiplicity intervals. Results from p{Pb collisions will be presented and compared with pp and Pb-Pb results and confronted with theoretical models. Speaker: Jacek Otwinowski (The Henryk Niewodniczanski Institute of Nuclear Physics, Polish Academy of Science) • 17:20 Light (Hyper-)Nuclei production at the LHC with ALICE 20m Thanks to its excellent particle identification and momentum measurement capabilities, the ALICE detector allows for the identification of deuterons, tritons,$\rm ^{3}{He}$and$\rm ^{4}{He}$and and their corresponding antinuclei. This is achieved via their specific energy loss in the Time Projection Chamber and the velocity measurement by the Time-Of-Flight detector. Moreover, thanks to the Inner Tracking System capability to separate primary from secondary vertices, it is possible to identify (anti-)hypertritons exploiting their mesonic decay ($\rm ^{3}_{\Lambda}{H}\rightarrow^{3}\rm{He}$+$\pi^-$). Results on the production yields of light nuclei and anti-nuclei in Pb--Pb, pp and p--Pb will be presented, together with the measurement of hypertriton production rates in Pb--Pb. The measurement of the hypertriton lifetime will also be shown. The experimental results will be compared with the predictions of both thermal (statistical) and coalescence models. Speaker: Ramona Lea (University and INFN Trieste) • 17:40 Search for Muonic Atoms at RHIC 20m In ultrarelativistic heavy-ion collisions with high particle multiplicities, a produced muon can be bound to a charged hadron (proton, antiproton,$K^{+}$,$K^{-}$,$\pi^{+}$,$\pi^{-}$) by Coulomb force and form a hydrogen-like atom. Among these atoms, the antimatter muonic hydrogen and the$K-\mu$atom have been predicted but not yet been discovered. At the STAR experiment, muon identification at low transverse momentum provides a great opportunity to search for a variety of muonic atoms. Muonic atoms are an ideal tool, as suggested by Mel Schwartz, Jack Sandweiss and many other theorists, to determine the thermal emission from the Quark-Gluon Plasma via a direct measurement of the single muon spectrum because only thermal muons or muons from short-lived resonance decays are capable of forming such atoms. We will present the analysis on the$\sqrt{s_{NN}}=200$GeV Au+Au collisions collected by the STAR experiment at RHIC. We will show the possible signatures of the new muonic atoms extracted from invariant mass distributions and also from particle correlations. We will also show the procedure that we use to extract the fraction of primordial muons. Speaker: Mr Kefeng Xin (Rice University) • 18:00 Recent Highlights from the PHENIX Heavy-Ion Program at RHIC 30m Over the last decade it has been established that a quark-gluon plasma (QGP) is formed in ultrarelativistic A+A collisions at RHIC energies. In recent years, detector upgrades have enabled the detailed study of this hot and dense matter. Although the RHIC d+Au program was originally undertaken to study initial state and cold nuclear matter effects, recent measurements at both RHIC (d+Au) and the LHC (p+Pb) have found evidence for collective phenomena in these small systems. We present the latest measurements from the PHENIX experiment. The talk will include recent results on electromagnetic probes that allow to constrain the time evolution of the medium. We will present the system size dependence on correlation observables from d+Au towards Au+Au collisions. The latest quarkonia and heavy-flavor results from PHENIX will be discussed. Data from the RHIC beam-energy scan that can give insight into the nuclear equation of state will be shown. Finally, we will present future plans and upgrades of the PHENIX detector.

Measurements of isolated inclusive and di≠photons cross sections for high p_T photons test various theoretical predictions and constrain parton density functions. In addition the total p≠p cross section at 7 TeV, together with the elastic and inelastic contributions, is measured and compared to various models. An overview of these results is given. Speaker: Mr Zenis Tibor (Bratislava) • 16:50 Recent electroweak results from ATLAS 20m ATLAS measurements of multi≠boson production processes involving combinations of W, Z and isolated photons are summarized. Production processes sensitive to vector≠boson fusion and vector≠boson scattering such as electroweak production of single vector boson associated with two forward jets and the di≠boson production at 8 TeV p≠p collisions are also presented and compared to Standard Model expectations. A measurement of the cross section and branching ratio for Z≠> 4leptons are presented and are found consistent with the expectation from the Standard Model. Measurements of Standard Model parameters are performed with high precision by ATLAS, such as the weak mixing angle, and are compared to world averages. Speaker: Mr Jochen Meyer (CERN) • 17:10 Measurements of WV Boson Production and limits on charged aTGC at CMS 20m We provide a summary of the latest measurements of the WV production cross- sections, where V=W or Z. The data sample(s) correspond to proton-proton collision events collected with the CMS detector at the center of mass energy of 7 and 8 TeV. Subsequent searches for Anomalous Triple Gauge Couplings, which allow us to probe the non-Abelian structure in the Electroweak Sector, and corresponding exclusion limits are presented. Speaker: Mr Ilya Osipenkov (Texas A&M Univ.) • 17:30 HERAFitter - open source QCD Fit framework and its related studies 20m We present the HERAFitter project which provides a framework for Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) analyses related to the proton structure in the context of multi-processes and multi-experiments. Based on the concept of factorisable nature of the cross sections into universal parton distribution functions (PDFs) and process dependent partonic scattering cross sections, HERAFitter allows determination of PDFs from the various hard scattering measurements. Here we report a set of parton distribution functions determined with the HERAFitter program using HERA data and preserving correlations between uncertainties for the LO, NLO and NNLO sets. The sets are used to study uncertainties for ratios of cross sections at LHC calculated at different order in QCD. A reduction of overall theoretical uncertainty is observed in this case. Speaker: Mr Volodymyr Myronenko (DESY) • 17:50 Electroweak physics at LHCb 20m The LHCb forward acceptance covers a range of rapidities not accessible by the other LHC experiments, allowing for complementary measurements. We report recent measurements of electroweak boson production, either inclusive, or in association with a jet or a D meson.

In four dimensions, ambitwistor string theory gives rise to new formulae for tree-level Yang-Mills and gravity amplitudes with arbitrary amounts of supersymmetry, which are supported on the scattering equations and are much simpler than previous formulae. Ambitwsitor string theory also provides new insights into soft theorems for photons and gravitons and their relationship to extended BMS symmetries. Speaker: Dr Arthur Lipstein (University of Oxford) • 17:00 Quantum-critical point of 1+1-dimensional adjoint QCD 30m In this talk I will discuss 1+1-dimensional QCD with fermions in the adjoint representation. In the high density regime, the infrared physics of this theory is described by a constrained free fermion theory with an emergent N=(2,2) superconformal symmetry. I will discuss the partition function and the search for chiral primaries in this model. In view of the construction of a holographic dual, I will also discuss the chiral ring of chiral primary fields at large N. Speaker: Mr Ingo Kirsch (DESY) • 17:30 Why does black hole describe the deconfinement phase? 30m In the gauge/gravity duality, the deconfinement transition in the gauge theory is identified with a formation of black hole in the dual gravity theory. By assuming this correspondence, many predictions on QGP have been made. In this talk, we justify this approach quantitatively, and also provide intuitive understanding. Firstly we give quantitative evidence for this identification from the thermodynamic study of the supersymmetric theory. We show that black hole and Yang-Mills theory give the same answer, even at finite temperature, including the 1/N correction. Then we consider generic gauge theories, including QCD, and show that the deconfinement transition is the condensation of very long and self-intersecting QCD strings, which is analogous to the formation of a black hole in string theory. We provide a concrete picture by using lattice gauge theory and matrix models in the Hamiltonian formulation, and give numerical evidence supporting this interpretation. We also argue how the fast thermalization of the QGP can be understood from this viewpoint. This talk is based on the following work: Hanada, Hyakutake, Ishiki and Nishimura, Science (2014)[arxiv:1311.5607]. Hanada, Maltz and Susskind, arxiv:1405.1732[hep-th].

The Standard Model (SM) contribution to the nEDM is of order 10^(-32) e*cm while the current experimental limit is dn < 2.9 * 10^(-26) e*cm. The search for an nEDM is one of the most sensitive experiments searching for physics beyond the SM (BSM) and any improvement of the current experimental limit will constrain BSM models. There are many efforts worldwide to search for an nEDM with high sensitivity; I will present the ongoing nEDM experiment at Paul Scherrer Institut (Switzerland) in which the Ramsey technique of separated oscillatory fields is applied to the stored ultracold neutrons with the potential to observe or rule out an nEDM at the level of 10^(-27) e*cm in the coming years. Speaker: Dr Malgorzata Kasprzak (University of Fribourg) • 16:50 Measurements of Electric Dipole Moments of Charged Particles at Storage Rings 30m Electric Dipole Moments (EDM) of elementary particles are considered to be one of the most powerful tools to investigate CP violation beyond the Standard Model and to find an explanation for the dominance of matter over anti-matter in our Universe. Up to now experiments concentrated on neutral systems (neutrons, atoms, molecules). Storage rings offer the possibility to measure EDMs of charged particles by observing the influence of the EDM on the spin motion. The Cooler Synchrotron COSY at the Forschungszentrum Jülich provides polarized protons and deuterons up to a momentum of 3.7 GeV/c and is thus an ideal starting point for such an experimental program. The JEDI (Jülich Electric Dipole moment Investigations) Collaboration has been formed to exploit the COSY facility to demonstrate the feasibility of such a measurement and to perform all the necessary investigations towards the design of a dedicated storage ring. The plans for measurements of charged hadron EDMs at COSY and results of the first test measurements will be presented. Speaker: Dr Volker Hejny (Institut für Kernphysik, Forschungszentrum Jülich) • 17:20 Searches for the Electric Dipole Moment of the Neutron: An Experimental Overview 30m The existence of a permanent electric dipole moment (EDM) in any non-degenerate system would affirm the presence of Time and (Charge Conjugation-)Parity Violation in fundamental interactions. The discovery of a non-zero EDM in next-generation experiments may point to an explanation of the numerical size of the baryon asymmetry of the Universe. Worldwide multiple ongoing efforts are trying to improve the present limit on the EDM of the neutron by two orders of magnitude. The utilization of ultra-cold neutrons and advances in co-magnetometry hold promise for an improvement in sensitivity to$\approx 5 \times 10^{-28} e\cdot\$cm. Such a new limit would pose additional stringent constraints on physics beyond the Standard Model. An overview of currently planned experiments and of the projected results will be presented.

New Limit on Lorentz-Invariance- and CPT-Violating Neutron Spin Interactions Using a Free-Spin-Precession 3He-129Xe Comagnetometer 20m
We performed a search for a Lorentz-invariance- and CPT-violating coupling of the 3He and 129Xe nuclear spins (each largely determined by a valence neutron) to posited background tensor fields that permeate the Universe. Our experimental approach is to measure the free precession of nuclear spin polarized 3He and 129Xe atoms in a homogeneous magnetic guiding field of about 400 nT using LTC SQUIDs as low-noise magnetic flux detectors. As the laboratory reference frame rotates with respect to distant stars, we look for a sidereal modulation of the Larmor frequencies of the co-located spin samples. As a result we obtain an upper limit on the equatorial component of the background field interacting with the spin of the bound neutron bn< 8.4 * 10^-34 GeV (68% C.L.). Our result improves our previous limit by a factor of 30 and the world's best limit by a factor of 4. In the talk we will give an overview of the principle of measurement, data evaluation and results. Finally, estimations based on current data regarding the sensitivity of future measurements testing CP symmetry (Xe-EDM) will be presented.

Limits for Spin-Dependent Short-Range Interaction of Axion-Like Particles 20m
A possible solution to the strong CP problem is a light pseudoscalar boson, the so-called axion. The axion would cause a new spin-dependent short-range interaction. Of interest here is the search for an axion mediated short range interaction between a fermion and the spin of another fermion. To search for this effect, co-located, nuclear spin polarized 3He and 129Xe gas is used to become independent of magnetic field drifts. The new approach is to measure the free nuclear spin precession frequencies in a homogeneous magnetic guiding field of about 350 nT using LTc SQUID detectors. The whole setup is housed in a magnetically shielded room at the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Berlin. With this setup long nuclear-spin coherence times of several hours for both gases can be achieved. In this talk we present results which improve the present upper limits on the scalar-pseudoscalar coupling of axion-like particles in the axion-mass window from 10^(-2) eV to 10^(-6) eV by up to four orders of magnitude [1].
