For a week spanning the months of July and August, scientists from around the world virtually gathered to attend the prestigious biennial ICHEP conference. At ICHEP, some of the most exciting physics results of the year are unveiled. CMS scientists from Fermilab and the LHC Physics Center were well-represented at the conference.

From Quality Digest, July 30, 2020: There is a critical need for a platform and community to support the recruiting and grooming of individuals in the metrology workforce and those interested in entering a career in metrology. For many professionals, the Coordinate Metrology Society is that platform. Fermilab’s Jana Barker weighs in on the opportunity provided by the Coordinate Metrology Society Conference.

From CERN Courier, July 23, 2020: Fermilab scientists Steve Brice and Sam Zeller and University of Minnesota scientist Marvin Marshak authored this article on the Neutrino 2020 conference, in which 4,350 people from every continent, including Antarctica, participated. The online program, hosted by Fermilab and the University of Minnesota comprised eight half-days over two weeks, four poster sessions with both web-based and virtual-reality displays, and the use of the Slack platform for speaker questions and ongoing discussions.
