TPU and CERN hold Trans-Siberian School on High-Energy Physics in Tomsk

The Trans-Siberian School on High-Energy Physics organized by Tomsk Polytechnic University and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) will take place on 1-5th of April 2019 in Tomsk (Russia). It brings together students and young scientists from different cities of Russia and from around the world who are conducting research at CERN or want to get a closer look at its work, as well as scientists working in the European Organization for Nuclear Research and other mega-science projects.

The School's events will take place at the Tom Business Center. The work of the School starts on Monday, April 1.

This year, the School will be attended by 50 young researchers from various universities and research centers of Tomsk, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Belarus, Poland, Kazakhstan, Czech Republic, and France. They will share the outcomes of their research at CERN and other mega-science projects, as well as attend lectures of the leading scientists and take part in practical tasks.

Director for Accelerators and Technology of CERN Frederick Bordry will lecture on the future of accelerators and medical physics at CERN. Marс Winter, Director for Research of French National Centre for Scientific Research, Paris (CNRS), will talk on the search of physics beyond the Standard Model and the role of electron-positron colliders in the process.

Director of the A.I. Alikhanov Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics of the National Research Center Kurchatov Institute and coordinator of Russian participation in the LHCb experiment in the Large Hadron Collider, Viktor Egorychev, will tell about CERN as an intellectual magnet for the younger generation of scientists.

The full agenda of the School and lectures is available on its website.

To recap, the Trans-Siberian School on High-Energy Physics was held in Tomsk for the first time in 2018.
