Plus Two

“+2″, those two tiny characters behind the arrival time on my booking confirmation nicely summarize the shape I’m in… Two back to back overnight flights, 25 hours from first take-off to final landing, got me from Munich to Melbourne. A long trip, but that is not the most remarkable thing about my first trip down-under. Usually, when you get off the plane the world is about the same it was when you got on. Not this time though. Particle physics is a lot different: A new particle has been discovered at the LHC, which very much looks like the Higgs boson. This means the ICHEP conference will prove to be particularly exciting, also in view of future projects in particle physics. There will be three talks on physics at linear colliders in the parallel ICHEP tracks, on Top and SUSY, as well as on Higgs physics, with the Higgs talk to be given by myself. Luckily I still have a bit of time to adapt my introduction to the new situation.

So, right now, straight from the airport, I’m getting ready to dive into the latest results… For me mostly SUSY and Top today, I expect. I’m looking forward to an exciting conference!

    Hello Frank!! I’m a big fan of your blog, so I have to ask, is there any website where we can watch your talk?? that would be awesome…

    Isn’t it exciting that the modifications you have to make are all good news?? :O

    Hi Roberto,

    you are absolutely right, it does not get much better than right now.

    Concerning the talks: If I read the conference website right, there will be a webcast of the Higgs track at ICHEP, more information at http://press.highenergyphysicsmedia.com/webcasts.html
    The talks are on Saturday, July 7.

    Thanks!! :) I believe that there is not going to be a live webcast, but thanks or the reply. May be (and this is just a suggestion) you could share some of your talk rught here. ;)

    Good luck!
