CERN: important events. Restart of the LHC: First beam on 20 November at 0.45 TeV First collisions on 23 November, followed by slowly ramping up the beam energy to 1.18 TeV (= world record), corresponding to 2000A Collisions until 16 December; now: technical shut-down until Feb.

cern important events
CERN:important events
  • Restart of the LHC:
    • First beam on 20 November at 0.45 TeV
    • First collisions on 23 November, followed by slowly ramping up the beam energy to 1.18 TeV (= world record), corresponding to 2000A
    • Collisions until 16 December; now: technical shut-down until Feb.
    • Cost for repair: 40 MCHF (without accompanying measures)
  • DG’s future plans:
    • A lot of consolidation needed (spares, He storage, cooling/electricity maintenance, tunnel overpressure requirements, busbar splices, etc) =25 MCHF/year over approx. 4-5 years
    • Long-term outlook on LHC exploitation developed in the Chamonix workshop will go via SPC to Council in June
    • Possible change of operation mode to a bi-annual shut-down
  • Evolution of LHC: “Install new items when they are needed”
    • LHC upgrade (“Phase I”) (inner triplets, LINAC4) not before 2016
    • S-LHC (“Phase II”)(luminosity x10, PS2, SPL) likely in the 2020ies.

CERN: Report from Council (1)
  • Council
    • elects Prof. Michel Spiro (FR) as President
    • extends the FC Chair Martin Steinacher (CH) for another year
    • notes that none of the large non-member States (Brazil, Canada, India, Japan, Russia, USA, Korea) wants to become a full member. Brazil and India are looking into Associate Membership (provided the contributions are small enough…)
    • agrees to start at an informal level the technical verification process for the five applications received (Cyprus, Israel, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey); decision re applications will be taken later on the basis of the work of the WG Enlargement
    • notes the CERN Pension Fund situation, where 2’100 MCHF are missing (structural deficit aggravated by the financial crisis in 2008). Some 80 MCHF per year are needed over a period of 30 years to improve the situation.

CERN: Report from Council (2)

Council agrees

  • on the guidelines for geographical enlargement
      • consensus on the principle of global opening of the Organization
      • the concrete paths towards global opening need to be examined further
      • the current Associate Status should be revised with a view to greater flexibility, balancing obligations and benefits
      • the relationship between the status of Candidate for Accession to CERN and the status of Associate Membership is to be discussed;
      • other options for participation in the Organization's activities will be streamlined (Observer Status, Co-op Agreements, etc)
  • to use the LHC upgrade as a test-bed for a global collaboration project („stakeholder model“, similar to the LHC experiments: RRB, maintenance and operation aspects)
  • to decouple the scientific enlargement from the geographical enlargement
