APPEAL-10: Future Accelerator Projects and Big Science at the Energy Frontier

With the road-map for particle physics in Europe – the so-called European Strategy for Particle Physics – being currently updated, now is a great time to discuss with A-level pupils the future direction of particle physics research at the high-energy accelerator frontier, both in Europe and elsewhere.

The University of Oxford is organising in collaboration with CERN a one-day event to give A-level teachers an opportunity to learn about particle physics and future accelerator projects at the high-energy frontier, including circular colliders such as the Future Circular Collider (FCC) and linear colliders such as the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) and the International Linear Collider (ILC). The school will also include lectures on admission to undergraduate studies in physics and on applications of accelerators as well as a lab class.

The event will address questions that often fascinate students, such as “How does a particle accelerator work?” “What has been discovered at the LHC already?" "What are particle physicists looking for next?” “What will come after the LHC?" “Will accelerators just keep on getting larger?" and "What are the applications of particle accelerators in our daily lives?".

Past APPEAL events were very successful and we are looking forward to a very interesting and thought-provoking event this year as well.


To take part in this school please register here before the Friday, 21 June 2019.
