Overview of the participation of the CIS and SEE countries

in the LHC Experiments

NEC, VARNA

12 – 16 September 2005

Nicolas Koulberg, CERN


CERN mandate: Foster the international collaboration

CERN priorities: to assist the European NMS in their effort

to build HEP communities of sustainable size and maintain

Its valuable collaboration with major international partners

Status: Cooperation Agreements with all countries except

Turkey, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan

CIS Countries are independent members of ATLAS, ALICE

and LHCb and member of RDMS in CMS

Interest of NMS physicists in the CERN scientific programme

continues to grow (not only LHC but fix target programme,

ISOLDE and AD)

CERN support for visits: 350 Man/month in 2005


Total contribution :190 MCHF

of 600 MCHF expected from all NMS

Participants : 1100 of 1900 from all NMS

Candidates for membership: Romania, Turkey(?),Slovenia(?)


CMS HCAL

Bulgaria

We are brothers in spirit,

you and I

Cherishing the same ideals

Hristo Botev

  • 1.2 MCHF; 62 persons

  • CMS - 4.06 M CHF

  • ALICE;

  • NA 48; NA 49; HARP;

  • University of Sofia (Phys & Math)

  • Institute for Nuclear Research

  • and Nuclear Energy (INRNE)

  • Central Laboratory for Parallel

  • Processing

  • Concentration / CMS

  • Increasing participation, despite

  • all difficulties

  • Many young people involved

  • Passivity of authorities

  • Painful way to get funding

  • Funding for CMS only


Serbia

22 persons 0.75 MCHF

Connecting pieces for the CMS Endcap

I am feeling with my wing torn out

like a brother one without the other…

Serbian Epos

  • Good contribution

  • New group in ATLAS

  • (Belgrade University)

  • Visit of 40 students

  • (7-9 Oct. 2004)

  • Successful re-integration

Hydraulic system


Armenia

Let us be proud of our arduous work

And thirsty for the arts and knowledge.

1994 – Cooperation Agreement

ALICE 0.161 MCHF

9 persons

CMS 0.15 MCHF

5 persons

ATLAS 0.24 MCHF

4 persons

Participation in CMS via JINR

since 1995

1997– MoU ATLAS

2001– MoU ALICE but

participation since 1998

Yerevan Physicis Institute

State University

Al-ring absorber produced by YrPhI

and Armenian industry (ALICE)

  • Large physics institute before 1991

  • Visible and good participation in

  • all three experiments

  • Strong participation in AliEn (Grid)

  • Support from Armenian Community

  • of Switzerland

  • No fund for contribution and visits

  • low salary in home institutes

  • narrow network capacity


Polishing fiber robot for

The ATLAS TileCal

The ceramic supports, produced by

YerPhI and MARS factory for

the CMS Endcap preshower

Armenia


  • Outstanding

  • contribution to ATLAS:

  • TileCal and equipment for

  • MDT chambers;

  • Strong contribution to

  • ATLAS Common Project

  • (Burrel Toroid Warm Structure)

  • Contribution via JINR

  • Significant contribution

  • to CMS through RDMS

  • Key role for quality control

  • of PWO crystals

  • CMS Gold award to MZOR

  • (Absorber Endcap Cal)

  • Grid development via

  • RDMS

Problem,

National Centre for HEP,

Institute for Applied

Physical Problems

End of assembly of HE-1, CMS

  • No fund for visits

  • No resources in currency

  • Customs problems

  • Problem with Common

  • Fund in ATLAS

Connection boxes for the BT Warm

Structure just delivered to CERN

EndCap Toroid of ATLAS

as the background


Summary

Existence of highly qualified potential

Valuable contribution to CERN research programme

Good use of links with JINR not only in CMS

Good use of the industrial opportunities in Russia, Belarus,

Serbia, Croatia as well as in Armenia and of high-tech in

Russia, Ukraine, Slovenia

Strengthening of the positions of the national institutes

through the international cooperation

Almost all the countries involved in the Grid development


Still problematic:

Lack of financial support for science and fundamental research

Lack of clear policy or elaborated strategy

Misbalance CERN – other research activities

No stable funding for the collaboration and

lack of resources for the visits and stay at CERN

Still important brain-drain

Internal tension within the national scientific communities:

often small teams are spread over the whole programme

and have less visibility


However:

Real improvement : Romania, Serbia, Croatia

Strong young generation (I/3 below 35 year old)

Good progress for finding solutions for a further participation

in the LHC physics programme
