CERN Courier magazine: September 2014 digital edition

Cern Courier

Welcome to the digital edition of the September 2014 issue of CERN Courier

The International Particle Accelerator Conference (IPAC) provides the annual showcase for worldwide developments in particle accelerators. This year, topics not only encompassed frontiers in accelerator energy, intensity and brightness, but also included applications and engagement with industry. An important application is the use of particle beams for cancer therapy, which was pioneered at Berkeley Lab in 1954, the year that CERN was founded. The convention that led to the establishment of CERN had been signed a year earlier – an event that was commemorated in Paris on 1 July this year, as part of CERN's 60th anniversary celebrations.
