Although high-energy physics has made great strides in providing open access to research publications, we are still in the very early days of open data.
The seed that led CERN to relinquish ownership of the web in 1993 was planted when the Organization formally came into being.
LHCb has been flooded by b- and c-hadrons due to the large beauty and charm production cross-sections within the experiment’s acceptance.
On 5–6 November, CERN hosted a first-of-its kind workshop on quantum computing in high-energy physics.
The spotlight was on the modernisation of the I/O subsystem, parallelisation, new graphics, multivariate tools and an interface to the Python language.
There will be no universal quantum computer on which we will be able to compile our C++ code and then magically run it faster, explains Federico Carminati.
It will receive $5 million per year for a period of five years.
On 28 June, 200 servers from the CERN computing centre were donated to Kathmandu University in Nepal.
A new facility called the Higgs Centre for Innovation opened at the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh on 25 May as part of the UK government’s efforts to boost productivity and innovation. The centre,...
