nScattering amplitudes are the building blocks that allow us to compute pr
edictions for high-energy experiments like the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)
at CERN. Despite their importance\, the computation of scattering amplitu
des is a very complex task. As the number of particles and/or the precisio
n of the prediction increases\, one faces an exponential growth in complex
ity and computations quickly become intractable. At the same time\, the ma
thematical theory of the functions describing generic scattering amplitude
s needed for high precision is insufficiently developed. Novel and powerfu
l techniques are required in order to make precise predictions for collide
r experiments.\n\nWhile there was a lot of progress over the last couple o
f years in understanding the mathematics of the functions that appear in s
cattering amplitude computations\, it is known that new classes of functio
ns show up that are poorly understood even from the mathematical side. The
refore\, these so-called ”elliptic functions” are currently an active
area of research not only in collider physics\, but also in seemingly disc
onnected areas like string theory and pure mathematics.\n\nThe aim of the
topical workshop is to bring together particle physicists\, string theoris
ts and mathematicians working on elliptic functions\, with the grand goal
of advancing our understanding of elliptic functions required to make prec
ise predictions for future particle physics experiments.\n\nhttps://indico
