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.
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.
