The 2017 CERN-Latin-American School of High-Energy Physics will be held in San Juan del Rio, Mexico, from 8 to 21 March 2017. The deadline for applications is 18 November. The lectures will cover a broad range of HEP topics at a level suitable for students working for a PhD in experimental particle physics. Financial support may be available for Latin-American students attending the School. Although the School is targeted particularly at students from Latin-American countries, it is open to self-funding students coming from other regions.
Barry Barish | 21 July 2011Following the recent release of the ILC accelerator interim report, The International Linear Collider: A Technical Progress Report, we have received positive and encouraging responses from the chairman and other members of the International Linear Collider Steering Committee, our scientific oversight committee. This interim report is a useful summary of our ILC R&D programme and accomplishments to date, in preparation for the ILC Technical Design Report, which we are on track to complete by the end of 2012.

Barry Barish | 9 June 2011To a very large extent, science has no boundaries. The research we perform, the discoveries we make, the collaborations we forge, and even the teaching we do is universal. As a result, science and scientists offer a unique window for understanding and collaboration with each other, advancing both science and what is referred to as science diplomacy.
