The LHC Physics Center, the United States hub for CERN’s CMS experiment, celebrated its 10th anniversary earlier this year.

On July 17, members of the LPC marked their first 10 years with a half-day symposium at Fermilab. Previous LPC coordinators and other attendees discussed highlights and their experiences over the last decade.

They capped off the celebration with refreshments.
