First Results from the Large Hadron Collider

The date of the WE-Heraeus-Seminar in December 2012 marks the end of the

first phase of LHC running. According to the current plans, this running

period will be followed by a shutdown of more than a year to prepare the

LHC for running at a centre of mass energy of 14 TeV. Thus, it is the

goal of the WE-Heraeus-Seminar to summarise the achievements of the

first years of LHC running, to put them into perspective within the

field of high-energy particle physics, and to discuss possible further

paths for the future. The WE-Heraeus-Seminar will bring world-renowned

experts of the relevant areas to Bad Honnef to discuss these topics in a

lively and inspiring atmosphere. The WE-Heraeus-Seminar will in

particular be an opportunity for younger scientists to closely interact

with leading German and international experts in the field.


The seminar is kindly funded by the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation.

Registration deadline: 21 October 2012
