LC NewsLine is taking a winter break. Happy holidays to our readers! We will be migrating the website and will be back in a couple of weeks.
Joint Universities Accelerator School: register now
Registration for the 2017 session of the Joint Universities Accelerator School (JUAS) is open to all staff, fellows and post-graduate students wishing to further their knowledge in the field. For more information please visit the website.
European School of Instrumentation in Particle & Astroparticle Physics
The next edition of the European School of Instrumentation in Particle & Astroparticle Physics (ESIPAP) will be held from 23 January to 17 March 2017. Registrations for the 2017 session of ESIPAP are open here.
7 July 2016The anniversary of the announcement of the Higgs discovery (which happened on 4 July 2012) was hard to miss at CERN this year. People braced waiting times of more than 30 minutes to have a taste of discovery: the specially created Higgs pizza! Two shoots of asparagus (proton beams) collide in the middle of the pizza to create a Higgs boson that then decays. For carnivores, the chorizo Higgs decays into two two high-energy photons made of salami alongside some charged ham and neutral olive particles; vegetarians ate the decay of a tomato Higgs into four pepper muons.

Barbara Warmbein | 11 February 2016Remember the ingenious civil engineering tool that British consultancy ARUP has developed for CERN's FCC and that is also being used for site-specific planning of the ILC? That thing where you can play around with shafts, tunnels and rock formations without leaving your desk? It's been shortlisted for a prestigious award, so keep your fingers crossed.

28 January 2016Sometimes even linear-collider experts make semi circles, especially when you have to squeeze more than 200 participants into one picture (and it's raining). The CLIC workshop was held at CERN from 18 to 22 January. Get the latest on the Compact Linear Collider Study in a future issue of LC NewsLine.

Philip Burrows | 10 December 2015Phil Burrows, acting Associate Director for the Compact Linear Collider Study in the Linear Collider Collaboration, says the linear collider community should be prepared for new results from the LHC over the course of the coming years, with the first to be announced next week. They will help us decide which future path we should take.
