CERN Accelerating science

ABOUT ACADEMIC TRAINING
The Academic Training Lectures take place from September to June and to provide CERN members - any contract type - with opportunities to deepen and broaden their academic knowledge. The candidate Abstracts are voted by the whole CERN community every year in May.
The Library has a collection of all the handouts since the start of the program in 1961. Most lectures from 1990 onwards have also been recorded. Since 2018 we can upload selected lectures in a dedicated YouTube playlist.

Factory Physics: Methods for Efficient Project Management in a Scientific Environment / Fischer, PE, Gary (speaker) (Factory Physics)
As the architect of Chevron’s major capital project system which was used to guide development and execution of about $500 Billion US dollars of projects, Gary became frustrated with the poor cost and schedule performance of those investments and launched a search for something better.  In his search he discovered Project Production Management based on Factory Physics and Operations Science.  After using PPM to rescue several projects that were years behind schedule and 100’s of millions over budget, he began to implement PPM throughout Chevron.  In this lecture Gary will describe his personal journey that took him beyond those industries that use conventional “best practice” project management methods to focus on how manufacturing industries have realized multi fold increases in productivity over the years and to adapt their underlying principles to complex construction projects in the energy sector. Short bio: Gary Fischer is the Executive Director of the Project Production Institute (PPI), as well as Chair of the PPI Energy Working Group [...]

REMOTE: Federated Data Architectures / de Jong, Michiel (speaker)
Abstract: Lecture 2: Federated Bookkeeping While we often still coordinate trade by settling against a third party currency that is globally trusted, other techniques of coordinating trade are slowly on the rise. Community currencies like the Swiss WIR make use of interpersonal trust relationships to coordinate trade [...]

REMOTE: Federated Data Architectures / de Jong, Michiel (speaker)
Abstract: Lecture 1: Personal Data Store Interoperability Personal Data Stores and Personal Cloud servers promise to give humans control over their online personas. By making sure the main copy of our personal data is hosted at a server which is ultimately controlled by the data subject, it becomes less likely that your personal data will be shared without your consent [...]
