Hangout with CERN (Wednesdays at 17:00 CET)

Buried 100m below the French / Swiss countryside, between the Alps and the Jura Mountains, is a 27km tunnel housing the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. This chain of superconducting magnets accelerates protons to high energies and then collides them in four different underground halls. Inside...

A presentation about CERN and LHCb designed to be given by members of the LHCb collaboration to school classes of 15-17 year olds. In French. Made by LHCb physicist Monica Pepe-Altarelli.
This 65 slide presentation gives an overview of the Large Hadron Collider, particle physics and the...

The ATLAS experiment will provide scientists with a lot of data which then must be analyzed and shared with the public. What does this process entail? In this interview by ATLAS physicist Steven Goldfarb (U of Michigan, USA), ATLAS Physics Coordinator Tom leCompte answers this important question...

This interview of Dario Barberis, Computing Coordinator for ATLAS on the LHC at CERN is conducted by ATLAS colleague Steven Goldfarb, (U of Michigan, USA). Subjects covered in this interview include:
 
a. a brief description of how much data is collected, how much data is stored as a...

This is number 8 of a series of 8 journals. No.8 was published in Automn 2010. Complete title of journal is "Élémentaire - de l’infiniment petit à l’infiniment grand." Élémentaire ("Elementary") is an outreach journal in French whose eight issues cover the particle physics, from the atom to the...

This color poster is written in both French and English. It includes a brief explanation of the two-levelled trigger system which registers the most interesting events from the LHCb experiment. The text describes how much data is collected and where it is stored. A brief mention of the computing...

A brief presentation of the Grid, the latest in computer technology developed to meet the needs of the LHC experiments to share data around the world. Subjects include: the purpose of the grid and why it is necessary, the meaning behind its name, how the grid works, who uses the grid, the impact...
