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.
Mike Harrison | 6 October 2016Future ex-Director Mike Harrison dedicates his last corner to describing the challenges that come with a change of emphasis in the R&D. The main R&D goal is optimised SCRF cost coupled with optimal design – but it's not that easy, Harrison says.

Ricarda Laasch | 23 June 2016The European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) hosted a Linear Collider Workshop from 30 May to 5 June in Santander, Spain, and offered many opportunities to exchange knowledge and technical know-how to over 200 scientists from all around the world. The ILC community and the CLIC community used this workshop to come together and present their recent developments and new findings in many plenary talks and a large number of parallel sessions. Both projects show their steady progress. But not only science and advancements were the focus of the workshop – also industrial partners and important political developments had their slot on the packed workshop schedule.

Tohru Takahashi (Hiroshima University) | 26 May 2016A Spanish Japanese Collaboration in industry and science? Yes, a collaboration which just took another important step to strengthen this relationship at May 13th at the Collaboration Opportunities on Fusion and Accelerator Technologies and Projects workshop at the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo. Tohru Takahshi from Hiroshima University attended this workshop and offers his impressions about the actual developments and relations between Japan and Spain. In his short review of this event he included many details about the speakers, the Spanish Japanese History and of course a short look in further events.
