CERN Accelerating science




LHC Report: focus on luminosity

The intensity ramp-up of the LHC beams resumed last Friday after the main powering system of the PS accelerator was put back in service.  >>

What makes CERN’s research great

As a newcomer to CERN, I find myself both honoured and humbled to have had the role of Research Director confided in me for five years.  >>

New tool in place to support authors and CERN as a publisher

CERN has published the Yellow Reports since the inception of the Laboratory. Until now this activity has followed a traditional, largely manual publishing workflow. Thanks to its new publishing platform, the CERN Publishing Service now offers a modern tool to the CERN community for its in-house publishing needs, managing the publication workflow from the submission of manuscripts to peer-review and publication. >>

Understanding parking habits at CERN

One woman’s journey in physics

Renowned theoretical physicist Mary K Gaillard delivered a scientific seminar and presented her book “A singularly unfeminine profession” at CERN. >>

A tour in sign language

In early May, CERN welcomed a group of deaf children for a tour of Microcosm and a Fun with Physics demonstration. >>

Ombud’s Corner: “It’s not fair…”

The perception of unfair treatment in the workplace can often lead to conflict and a sense of demotivation, which ultimately leaves us feeling discouraged and helpless.
