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.
Brian Foster | 11 December 2014Russia's Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in is an international organisation with a long and wide scientific programme, embracing both nuclear and particle physics. Brian Foster, European Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration embracing both nuclear and particle physics. Brian Foster, European Director in the Linear Collider Collaboration visited the lab for the third time and met with the directorate, addressing options for exploring Russian engagement in possible future ILC construction, for which the lab has a lively interest.

Lyn Evans | 9 January 2014The ILC will be a truly global scientific undertaking when it’s built – but it’s not the only one. The ALMA observatory in Chile for example, built to tell us more about how stars and planets are formed, is run by a collaboration that is distributed around the world. LCC Director Lyn Evans was invited on a field trip to three observatories in Chile as a member of a visiting committee set up by the European Southern Observatory ESO and learned a lot about travel in South America, commissioning telescopes and running large science projects.

10 March 2011Experiments in particle physics have decades of experience as thoroughly international collaborations. Can the giant accelerators that power these experiments make the leap to go global as well? The global physics community has kept the lessons of the Superconducting Super Collider and the LHC in mind while planning for the next international accelerator project. This time, countries are working together from the beginning and physicists have already demonstrated this attitude in developing future accelerators. Read more in Symmetry Magazine.
