Geneva conference to bring benefits of basic research to medicine

Geneva, 20 February 2012. A new kind of conference will be launched next week in Geneva, uniting physics, biology and medicine for better healthcare. Starting on 27 February, the ICTR-PHE conference brings together the long established International Conference on Translational Research in Radiation Oncology, which has been held every three years from 2000, with CERN1’s Physics for Health workshop, which was launched in 2010.

LHC to run at 4 TeV per beam in 2012

Geneva, 13 February 2012. CERN1 today announced that the LHC will run with a beam energy of 4 TeV this year, 0.5 TeV higher than in 2010 and 2011. This decision was taken by CERN management following the annual performance workshop held in Chamonix last week and a report delivered today by the external CERN Machine Advisory Committee (CMAC). It is accompanied by a strategy to optimise LHC running to deliver the maximum possible amount of data in 2012 before the LHC goes into a long shutdown to prepare for higher energy running.
