The upcoming book 60 Years of CERN Experiments and Discoveries, edited by Herwig Schopper and Luigi Di Lella traces CERN's exciting journey from its creation in the 1950s to the discovery of the Higgs particle in 2012.
The understanding of the neutrino sector is a worldwide priority, promising physics beyond the Standard Model in a unified theoretical framework that goes from the electroweak scale to the highest energy scales.
The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded starting grants to Magdalena Kowalska, a member of the ISOLDE physics team, and Claude Duhr, CERN Theory Division. The funding will enable them to build their own research teams at CERN, engaging postdocs and PhD students.
Professor Dimopoulos is searching for answers to some of the most profound mysteries of nature. In this interview we discuss the recent findings of the LHC and his expectations about future HEP experiments, the quest for "truth" that seems to inform our scientific endeavours, as well as the relation between science and art. I would like to personally thank Prof. Dimopoulos for kindly accepting my request for an interview. I hope that you will enjoy reading Prof. Dimopoulos’ interesting - and often intriguing - thoughts.
