This August, UCL HEP is proud to host the Boost 2014 workshop. BOOST2014 is the sixth of a series of successful joint theory/experiment workshops which bring together the world leading experts from theory and the Tevatron and LHC experiments to discuss the latest progress and develop new approaches on the reconstruction and use of boosted decay topologies as search tools for new physics. This will incorporate an event for the public on the evening of Wednesday 20 August, including a virtual visit to CERN.
