Join the audience for a live webinar at 2.30 p.m. GMT on 27 January 2021 to gain a better understanding of the HL–LHC project.
This webinar will provide an overview of the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL–LHC) upgrade project with highlights of the main challenges and technical innovations.
Presented by Oliver Brüning, the webinar will cover:
• An introduction to the HL–LHC project.
• An overview of the challenges of a high-energy, high-luminosity hadron collider.
• An outline of the performance reach in HE colliders over the next two decades.
Dr Oliver Brüning is the project leader for the HL–LHC project, an upgrade project to the LHC that is scheduled to finish its implementation by 2026. Oliver has a background in accelerator design, beam dynamics and machine operation. He started his career in accelerator physics at DESY where he worked on non-linear beam dynamics studies for HERA and was part of the initial commissioning team of the HERA accelerator. He joined CERN in 1995 and became part of the LHC design team just before the formal LHC approval by the CERN council. Up to 2012, he was working on the design and commissioning of the LHC and from 2005 until 2015 he served as head of the CERN accelerator theory group. Since 2008 he has been co-ordinating the LHeC accelerator system studies and was the deputy project leader for the HL–LHC project between 2010–2020.
