Former CERN physicist Christian Fabjan takes a whirlwind tour of 60 years of innovation in particle-detection technology at CERN and beyond.
A strong tradition of innovation and ingenuity shows that, for CERN’s North Area, life really does begin at 40.
Being a scientist in the digital age means being a software producer and a software consumer.
True open science demands more than simply making data available.
The European Commission is embarking on an ambitious project called Plan S to make all scientific publications open access from 2020.
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.
During the next two years of long-shutdown two (LS2), the LHC and its injectors will be tuned up for high-luminosity operations.
One of the biggest challenges for the CMS collaboration during LS2 is to prepare its detector for the HL-LHC.
New wheel-shaped detectors that allow a better trigger and measurement capability for muons are among numerous transformations taking place.
