CineGlobe Film Festival presents: Particle Fever & Comedy Night

 

Particle Fever follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, which marked the start-up of the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet, pushing the boundaries of human innovation. Seeking to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries joined forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate the conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially explaining th...

CineGlobe Film Festival presents: Particle Fever & Comedy Night
Particle Fever follows six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider, which marked the start-up of the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet, pushing the boundaries of human innovation. Seeking to unravel the mysteries of the universe, 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries joined forces in pursuit of a single goal: to recreate the conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and find the Higgs boson, potentially explaining the origin of all matter. But our heroes face an even bigger challenge: have we reached the limit of our capacity to understand why we exist? The film will be followed by a panel discussion with director Mark Levinson, Academy Award-winning editor Walter Murch and some of the physicists featured in the film. The audience will have the chance to put their questions to the panel. After the panel discussion, join us for a drink and an opportunity to see some CERN scientists become amateur comedians for one night only! From the quirks of quarks to cultural conundrums, you’ll hear all about the lighter side of a life in cutting-edge science. The film is in english with subtitles in french.   Doors open at 6p.m., film & panel 7-9:30 p.m., comedy 10-11 p.m. Don’t miss out! Book your seats for the film !   No parking facilities will be provided at CERN, so you are strongly recommended to use public transport. Car parks available near CERN   ________________ Particle Fever raconte l’histoire de six brillants scientifiques pendant le lancement du Grand collisionneur de hadrons (LHC), qui a marqué le début de la plus grande et la plus coûteuse expérience de tous les temps, repoussant les limites de l’ingéniosité humaine. Cherchant à percer les mystères de l’Univers, 10 000 scientifiques, provenant de plus de 100 pays différents, ont uni leurs forces dans un seul but : recréer les conditions qui ont existé juste après le Big Bang, et trouver le boson de Higgs dans l’espoir d’expliquer l’origine de la matière. Mais nos héros sont confrontés à un défi encore plus grand, celui de savoir si nous avons atteint les limites de notre capacité à comprendre pourquoi nous existons. Le film sera suivi par une table ronde entre le réalisateur Mark Levinson, le monteur Walter Murch, primé aux Oscars, et certains des physiciens qui apparaissent dans le film. Le public aura la possibilité de leur poser des questions. Rejoignez-nous pour un verre après la table ronde. Vous aurez ainsi l’occasion, le temps d’une soirée exceptionnelle, de voir quelques scientifiques du CERN se transformer en comédiens amateurs. Des singularités du quark au casse-tête culturel, ils vous dévoileront le côté plus léger de la science. Le film est en anglais, sous-titré en français.   Ouverture des portes à 18h, film et table ronde de 19h à 21h30, spectacle de 22h à 23h. Réservez vos places dès maintenant !   Aucune place de stationnement n’est prévue au CERN et, en raison de l’affluence attendue, il vous est très fortement recommandé d’emprunter les transports publics.

Constraining QCD and electroweak physics with vector boson plus jets events

by Tricoli Alessandro

Events with vector bosons produced in association with jets have been extensively studied at hadron colliders and provide high-accuracy tests of the Standard Model. A good understanding of these processes is of paramount importance for precision Higgs physics, as well as for searches for new physics. In particular, associated production of W or Z bosons with light-flavour jets is a powerful tool for testing perturbative QCD calculations and Monte Carlo generators, while analogous events with heavy-flavour jets can constrain the quark flavour content of the proton. Furthermore, events with a Z boson produced with two well-separated jets can be used to distinguish electroweak and strong production mechanisms, and constrain signals of physics beyond the Standard Model. After reviewing the present status of this thriving field of research, I will discuss how the precision and phase space reach of the measurements will improve thanks to the Run 2 of the LHC, given the increase of centre-of-mass energy and integrated luminosity. The trigger systems will become even more critical than in Run 1, to provide high selection efficiencies in high-pileup conditions, ensuring that the LHC will continue playing a central role in the study of vector boson plus jets processes.

TEDxCERN

TEDxCERN is happening again and the theme for this year’s event is ‘Forward – Charting the Future with Science’. It will address the essential role that science must play in trying to find solutions to many important issues the world faces today. The event provides a unique platform at CERN for some of the world’s leading researchers, scientists, developers, designers and artists to share and build bold visions of the future. What ideas in research, technology, innovation and education could contribute to solving the challenges we see globally? This year, TEDxCERN will show how science is essential in shaping the landscape that future scientists and decision-makers will have to navigate. The key topics of the talks will include climate, health, food, water and energy.
