From CERN Openlab, Nov. 22, 2017: Physics data reduction helps ensure researchers gain valuable insights from the vast amounts of particle collision data produced by CMS. Fermilab scientist Oliver Gutsche and colleagues will look at investigate techniques based on Apache Spark, a popular open-source software platform.
From York University, Oct. 17, 2017: This is the first such agreement Fermilab has signed for the experiment with a university outside the United States, and York is the only Canadian university currently involved in the international DUNE collaboration spanning 31 countries.
From Science, Sept. 20, 2017: UK pledges $88 million to gigantic U.S. particle physics experiment — DUNE.
On Wednesday, Sept. 6, at 4 p.m. in One West, Fermilab’s Victor Yarba will present a colloquium on the 45 years of collaboration between Fermilab and USSR/Russian scientists Since day one, when the Main Ring at Fermilab was put in operation in 1972, Soviet scientists were deeply involved in joint experiments. Over the years, hundreds of Soviet and Russian physicists participated in research at Fermilab, and this cooperation continues now on muon and neutrino experiments. USSR/Russian laboratories provided major parts…
