The Present and Future of CERN
Sorry for my long absence. I was on the road for pretty much all of December (South Africa, Chicago, Vermont) with a day here and there in NYC. Now I’m back — and expect to report more often!
Anyway, what better way to enter 2009 than with this fascinating set of slides from the new Director General of CERN, Rolf Heuer? There’s even a video of his talk online.
Heuer covers a lot of ground here, particularly the plans for the LHC in 2009, but also the budget, and quite a bit of forward thinking about the future of CERN, both scientifically and geographically (particularly slide 26 and following on “Global Collaboration”). Enjoy.
