CERN is celebrating 60 years of science for peace in 2014

Seeking and finding answers to questions about the Universe Pushing back the frontiers of technology Bringing nations together through science Training the scientists of tomorrow

The year 2014 holds a particular significance for CERN: on 29 September it will be exactly 60 years since the Organization was founded.

CERN was established after the Second World War by a handful of Europe’s leading scientists who saw an opportunity to construct an international laboratory for fundamental research that would bring nations together through science. Today CERN has 21 Member States and many other countries from around the world also participate in its research programme. In 2014, CERN is celebrating 60 years of science for peace!

To celebrate this anniversary in style, CERN has put together a rich and attractive programme offering something for everyone: public lectures, guided tours, practical demonstrations and exhibitions inspired by science. In 2014, CERN will be abuzz with these exciting events!

CERN’s Member States are also hosting events to celebrate this anniversary. A variety of events of all kinds will provide a great opportunity for exchanges between the scientific community and the general public.

CERN 60 Years Short Film Competition

Are you inspired by CERN or Particle Physics? Have you been impacted in some way by the particle physics performed at CERN? Has it inspired you, confused you, or made you wonder philosophically about our origins?
Do you live near a CERN site or know people who work at CERN? We want to hear from you, and about how CERN and its projects have impacted your life, in whatever form that may be.

We are accepting submissions of short films up to 10 minutes in length. Your film should convey what CERN and its work mean to you!

 
The winning film(s) will be selected by a jury of filmmakers, artists, scientists, and cultural professionals. They will be projected during the CERN 60th anniversary celebration, on September 29th, 2014.

 

A selection of the best films will also figure on CERN’s social media, website, and across other platforms.
 
The deadline is August 31st, 2014.

Public lecture "Les accélérateurs de particules : vecteurs de découvertes, moteurs de développement" by Dr. Philippe Lebrun.

Particle accelerators have been used in fundamental research for over a century, allowing physicists to discover elementary particles and study them at increasingly smaller scales. Making use of emerging technologies whose progress they helped to stimulate, they developed exponentially throughout the 20th century to become major tools for research today, not only in particle physics but also – as powerful radiation sources for probing matter – in atomic and molecular physics, condensed matter physics and materials science. They have also found applications in society, where they are increasingly used in a wide range of fields including applied sciences, medicine (research and clinical applications) and industry. The lecture will cover examples of these applications and further development opportunities.  

 

Lecture in french, translated in english.
Entrance free. Limited number of seats.
Reservation essential : +41 22 767 76 76 or cern.reception@cern.ch

Concert | The CERN Choir hits the high notes | Victoria Hall | 30 September

60 – 40 – 25: a series of numbers that have inspired an exceptional concert. They refer to the 60th anniversary of CERN, the 40th anniversary of the CERN Choir and the 25th anniversary of its direction by Gonzalo Martinez. On the occasion of this collision of anniversaries, the Committee of this CERN club decided to organise an appropriately significant event to celebrate the important worldwide role that CERN has played for 60 years, the fact that the CERN Choir has brought together amateur singers for 40 years, and finally the decisive role in the Choir’s history of its director, Gonzalo Martinez.
