Symposium to mark 25 years of the LHC experimental programme

Open to the entire CERN community, the symposium, which will take place on December 15th, will cover the history of the LHC experimental programme

Symposium to mark 25 years of the LHC experimental programme

Friday, 15 December 2017 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
in the Main Auditorium (500-1-001)

Twenty-five years have passed since the Evian meeting in March 1992, when the LHC experimental programme was launched. The Evian meeting was a crucial milestone in the design and development of the LHC experiments. Detector ideas discussed at Evian evolved into Letters of Intent that were submitted between 1992 and 1995, and which subsequently led to the construction of the LHC experiments.

The symposium will retrace the emergence of the LHC experimental programme against the backdrop of the physics landscape of the early 1990s. It will be an occasion to recall some of the ingenuity and a few of the bold decisions that led to the superbly functioning LHC detectors of today.

The symposium will end with a jamboree reviewing recent experimental results from the LHC experiments.

This symposium is open to the entire CERN community; registration is not required.

This event will be live webcast.

In the event of the Main Auditorium being over capacity, you will be able to watch the webcast of the symposium in the Council Chamber (503-1-001), in the TH Auditorium (4-3-006) and in the conference room 222-R-001.
