Exploring the Energy Frontier: LHC at 13 TeV

Abstract: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is the world’s largest and highest energy particle accelerator, which began operation in 2009 at a center of mass energy of 7 trillion electronvolts. The first ‘physics run’ of the LHC extended from 2010-2012, culminating in the discovery of a new particle whose properties appear to match those of the Higgs boson. In the current run, which began in 2015, the LHC has resumed proton collisions at a new record energy of 13 trillion electronvolts, and with double the interaction rate achieved in the previous run. As with many scienfitic discoveries, observation of the Higgs boson raises more questions than it answers, including why its mass is so far below the Planck mass. The standard model of particle physics has no answer to this question, nor does it provide a ready candidate for Dark Matter, let alone any explanation at all for Dark Energy. Such questions are driving the intensified search for new particles and new phenomena beyond those described by the standard model, using the unprecedented data currently being collected at the LHC. In this talk, I will summarize the near-term and far-term goals of the project, and possible future paths beyond the LHC.

Understanding the minutiae of the standard model with Dark Matter

Abstract: Developments over the past year have demonstrated the power of the LHC to complement and, in some cases, extend direct detection and galactic searches for dark matter. We present a series of new searches for dark matter that represents the culmination of these developments. In addition to an order of magnitude improvement in sensitivity to dark matter, we demonstrate that these searches have lead to some of the most precise measurements of electroweak boson production to date. Finally, we explore the future of dark matter searches and present a new class of searches using hadronically decaying bosons. Can we make a definitive path to dark matter discovery?

CERN SCHOOL OF COMPUTING 2017
————————————
Applications are open for the 2017 CERN School of Computing (CSC 2017) which takes place on 27 Aug – 9 Sept 2017 in Madrid, Spain.

The School is organized in collaboration with Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). It will cover a wide range of topics, such as data storage and management technologies, fundamental concepts of physics computing, and many other areas including software engineering, computer architecture, computing security and networking.

All details, including the application form, can be found at https://indico.cern.ch/e/csc2017

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS WEDNESDAY 10 MAY.

The School is limited to 60 students. The total fee is EUR 1200 per student (financial support may be available for justified cases).

You are most welcome to pass this information on to potentially interested colleagues, inside or outside CERN.

For all enquiries and correspondence related to the School, please email computing.school [at] cern.ch
