CMS Experiment at the LHC, CERN
Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor John Ellis CBE FRS, Professor David Charlton and Professor Tejinder Virdee FRS
A new particle resembling the long-sought Higgs boson has been discovered at CERN. This meeting will discuss the genesis of this discovery, its interpretation, its significance, its relations to condensed-matter physics and cosmology, and possible future experiments to explore its nature.
Biographies of the organisers and speakers will be made available shortly, and you can download the draft two-day programme. Speakers include Professor Ben Allanach, Professor Luis Alvarez-Gaume, Professor Austin Ball, Dr Oliver Buchmueller, Professor David Charlton, Professor Paul Collier, Professor Guenther Dissertori, Professor Fabiola Gianotti, Professor Christophe Grojean, Professor Peter Higgs FRS, Professor Tom Kibble FRS, Sir Chris Llewellyn Smith FRS, Professor Mikhail Shaposhnikov, Professor Paris Sphicas, Professor Tejinder Virdee FRS, Dr Pippa Wells and Professor Terry Wyatt FRS.
Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the event and the papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions A.
This meeting is immediately followed by a related satellite meeting at the Royal Society at Chicheley Hall, home of the Kavli Royal Society International Centre.
This event is intended for researchers in relevant fields and is free to attend. There are a limited number of places and registration is essential. An optional lunch is offered and should be booked during registration (all major credit cards accepted).
