CERN Courier: June 2004

Cover of CERN Courier Volume 44 Issue 5


The beginning of long-term planning in CERN

In its early days CERN was budgeting a year at a time, but after a crisis in 1961 it became clear that long-term planning was essential. Mervyn Hine looks back to the introduction of a four-year planning cycle.

Joining up the dots with the strong force

A new variation on an old technique is yielding the most precise results so far in lattice calculations of quantum chromodynamics, the theory of strong interactions, as Christine Davies explains.

Final beam for Orsay's accelerator

The linear accelerator that gave "LAL" at Orsay its name has delivered its last beam, but the laboratory's involvement with electron linacs remains as strong as ever.

CANDLE lights up research in Armenia

As Armenian scientists continue their efforts to promote the creation of the CANDLE facility, a third-generation light source, Vasili Tsakanov explains the importance of the project both to the region and to international research.

The search for the disappearing neutrinos

A series of three workshops has considered a new generation of experiments at nuclear reactors, which could help to pin down the neutrino mixing matrix.

Theory and experiment peer across the frontier

The fourth conference in the "Beyond" series presented a clear overview of - and beyond - the current frontiers of particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology.


Viewpoint: More than just a conference

The European Particle Accelerator Conference, EPAC, has developed a distinctive role on the world stage, explains Christine Petit-Jean-Genaz, the EPAC conferences coordinator.
