Geneva/Linz, 3 June 2013. CERN1 and Ars Electronica2 today launch an open call for artists working in the digital domain to apply for the third Prix Ars Electronica Collide @ CERN3. The winner will receive a fully funded residency at CERN and Ars Electronica to create new dimensions in their artistic practice by encounters with the world of science. This is the third year of the collaboration between CERN and Ars Electronica.
Brussels/Geneva, 30 May 2013. At a special meeting hosted by the European Commission in Brussels today, the CERN Council1 formally adopted an update to the European strategy for particle physics.
Brussels/Geneva, 28 May 2013. The European Commission and CERN have today agreed to support the construction of SESAME (Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East), one of the most ambitious research facilities in the Middle East.
Geneva, 14 May 2013. An international team of physicists at the radioactive-beam facility ISOLDE at CERN1 have for the first time measured the ionization potential of the rare radioactive element astatine2.
The value for astatine, published today in the journal Nature Communications, could help chemists to develop applications for the element in radiotherapy, and will serve as a benchmark for theories that predict the structure of super-heavy elements.
