Tomorrow I depart Nebraska for the ICHEP conference, which will start on Wednesday afternoon (Australia time) next week. It’s a long trip ahead of a very exciting week — Higgs week, as we are starting to see it called. First, on Monday there will be a seminar at Fermilab about searches for the Higgs at the Tevatron. And then on Wednesday, the seminar at Fermilab about searches for the Higgs at the LHC. Both will be webcast live, should you be awake at the appropriate hour. We still don’t know what exactly is going to be said, but everyone is very much on the edge of their seats! (And then there is the rest of ICHEP, where we’ll be hearing about new results from all across particle physics. Who knows what surprises are in store from elsewhere?)
And, if you can manage to keep yourself in your seat: I will be live-blogging here at Quantum Diaries/US LHC Blog from ICHEP during the CERN seminar. I’ll try to capture what’s going on in the room at what I suspect will be the largest gathering of physicists outside of the CERN auditorium. Please join me starting a bit before 2 AM US Central time, 9 AM CERN time and 5 PM Melbourne time on July 4!
