Organised by Professor George Kalmus CBE FRS, Dr Richard Nickerson, Dr Valerie Gibson, Professor Robert Brown and Dr David Evans

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), achieved its first particle collisions in late 2009 and is now running at 7 TeV, the highest energy ever attained in the laboratory, thereby opening the way for the search for many new phenomena. The aim of the meeting is to discuss the scientific, technical, sociological, political and financial challenges of bringing this huge international project to fruition.
