Next week is Higgs week

Next week, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider and the Tevatron will announce their latest Higgs search results. Fermilab will host a number of events to share and explain the results, for both scientific and non-scientific audiences. Mark your calendars:

  • Monday, July 2, 9 a.m., Ramsey Auditorium: Scientists from the Tevatron’s CDF and DZero experiments present Tevatron Higgs search results in an hour-long scientific seminar. The seminar will be streamed live.
  • Wednesday, July 4, 2 a.m., One West: Video of CERN’s scientific Higgs seminar and the follow-up press conference is screened live via a dedicated connection for Fermilab employees, users, friends and family. Pajamas optional. CERN also offers a public webcast.
  • Thursday, July 5, 9 a.m., Ramsey Auditorium: Stumped by a Higgs question from your neighbor? Want to know how Fermilab is involved in the search? This is your chance to get answers. COO Bruce Chrisman hosts a 30-minute all-hands meeting to provide employees with a short, non-technical summary of the Higgs results and what they mean.
  • Friday, July 6, 4 p.m., One West: US LHC scientists present more details on the LHC Higgs results in a scientific seminar.

Fermilab Today will provide more information on each event in the upcoming days.
