The deadline for the 2016 CERN-JINR European School of High-Energy Physics, which will take place in Skeikampen (near Lillehammer, Norway) from 15 to 28 June, has been extended to 19 February.
The School is targeted at students in experimental high-energy particle physics who are in the final years of work towards their PhDs, although candidates at an earlier or later stage in their studies may be considered. Sponsorship may be available for a few students from developing countries.
Barry Barish | 10 November 2011An experiment at the Gran Sasso Laboratory in Italy, designed to study the oscillation properties of neutrinos in travelling 732 kilometres from CERN to the Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy, reported evidence that these neutrinos arrive sooner than expected for particles travelling at the speed of light. Although the reported deviation is quite small, if correct, it would violate Einstein’s theory of relativity. The physics community now has to check whether the evidence is correct.
