ECFA Linear Collider Workshop: registration is open
The next ECFA Linear Collider Workshop which will be held in Santander (Spain) from 30 May to 5 June 2016. It continues the international workshops devoted to accelerator, physics and detector aspects of future high-energy electron-positron linear colliders (ILC, CLIC). The workshop is co-hosted by ECFA and LCC and will consist of accelerator sessions, several mini-workshops of detector concept and R&D groups as well as physics and plenary sessions.

Barry Barish | 19 April 2012Most of us belong to a professional society that serves many of our professional needs throughout our career as practicing scientists. I have belonged to the American Physical Society since I was a graduate student in Berkeley, and last year I had the privilege of serving as APS President for 2011. It has become customary for each outgoing President to summarise his or her presidential year for APS, and I repeat my summary in order to give a picture of the activities of such a professional society.

Image: CERN/M. Lapka | 15 March 2012Young researchers analysing real high-energy collisions from the LHC at CERN. From 27 February to 24 March, about 8000 high school students in 31 countries come to one of about 120 nearby universities or research centres for one day in order to unravel the mysteries of particle physics. Lectures from active scientists give insight in topics and methods of basic research at the fundaments of matter and forces, enabling the students to perform measurements on real data from particle physics experiments themselves. At the end of each day, as in an international research collaboration, the participants join in a video conference for discussion and combination of their results.
