resources changes in the last 3 4 months
Resources(+ changes in the last 3-4 months)
  • Very significant reinforcement of the Engineering Office
    • 3 staff
    • 1 VIA + User + Project Associate
  • Reinforcement of the the EM1/2 sections
    • 1 TTE and 2 staff from 1/2/14
  • Visiting scientist for MPGD
  • 1 staff for the GIF++ construction & commissioning phases
  • Enlargement of trainee programme with CUT for PH-DT-DI projects (gas, cooling, controls)
  • 1 TTE for Gas & Cooling
  • LD2IC for Cooling team and Magnet controls team
  • CERN PCB workshop led by Rui de Oliveira joins PH-DT-DD from 1.1.14 (8 staff, 1 Fell and FSU of 12)

Jan'14 DT Group meeting

workshop transfer from te to ph
Workshop Transfer from TE to PH
  • Presentation of the team and activities by Rui de Oliveira
  • Benefits of Merging
    • The integration of the TE MPE workshop in PH is an added value to the experimental community and will also integrate the workshop much more directly with the key users
    • The workshop reinforces the role of PH-DT as an open center of expertise for detector prototyping and development, building on the core expertise of the workshop (production of high-tech detector components) and PH-DT (detector R&D, construction, integration and operation)
  • Integration phase
    • The unit moved to PH-DT-DD on 1/1/14
    • Rui de Oliveira remains as PL for both the technically and admin aspects

European Particle Physics Strategy

Priority projects:

Europe’s top priority should be the exploitation of the full potential of the LHC, including the high-luminosity upgrade of the machine and detectors with a view to collecting ten times more data than in the initial design, by around 2030.

To stay at the forefront of particle physics, Europe needs to be in a position to propose an ambitious post-LHC accelerator project at CERN. CERN should undertake design studies for accelerator projects in a global context, with emphasis on proton-proton and electron-positron high-energy frontier machines(refers High Energy LHC and CLIC)

There is a strong scientific case for an electron-positron collider, complementary to the LHC that can study the properties of the Higgs boson and other particles with unprecedented precision and whose energy can be upgraded (refers to ILC in Japan)

CERN should develop a neutrino programmeto pave the way for a substantial European role in future long-baseline experiments. Europe should explore the possibility of major participation in leading neutrino projects in the US and Japan

General statement about detector R&D

The success of particle physics experiments, such as those required for the high-luminosity LHC, relies on innovative instrumentation, state-of-the-art infrastructures and large-scale data-intensive computing. Detector R&D programmesshould be supported strongly at CERN, national institutes, laboratories and universities. Infrastructure and engineering capabilities for the R&D programmeand construction of large detectors, as well as infrastructures for data analysis, data preservation and distributed data-intensive computing should be maintained and further developed.
