ICE-DIP, the Intel-CERN European Doctorate Industrial Program, is a European Industrial Doctorate scheme led by CERN. Building on CERN’s long-standing relationship with Intel through CERN openlab, ICE-DIP brings together CERN, Intel and universities to offer training to five PhD students in advanced information and communication technologies (ICT).

The focus of the project, which launched in 2013, has been the development of next-generation techniques for acquiring and processing data that are relevant for the trigger and data-acquisition systems of the LHC experiments. The developments made by the ICE-DIP researchers are of great interest for CERN’s future computing facility upgrades, other research laboratories and, potentially, other business sectors too.

The ICE-DIP researchers’ results will be presented in a public session starting at 14:00 CEST today.

A public session will take place later today from 14:00 to 18:30 CEST as part of the ICE-DIP closing workshop. This will be an opportunity to learn about the results of the exciting work carried out by the PhD students (presentation slides available via the Indico page).
