LHC Report: a break from luminosity production
Dernières nouvelles du LHC : une pause dans la production de luminosité
/ Jan Uythoven for the LHC team
The LHC has been in great shape over the last few months, delivering over 20 fb-1 of integrated luminosity before the ICHEP conference in Chicago at the beginning of August. This is not much below the 25 fb-1 target for the whole of 2016. [...]

ICHEP 2016: to b(ump) or not to b(ump)
ICHEP 2016 : une bosse entre les gratte-ciels ?
/
This week I’m in Chicago for the 38th International Conference on High Energy Physics, ICHEP 2016, hosted this year by the US particle physics community. While it became clear at the conference that the famous 750 GeV bump has flatlined, there’s been a wealth of physics from CERN and around the world [...]

Computer Security: Pokémon GO! Or not?
Sécurité informatique : Pokémon GO… Attention aux chausse-trapes !
/ Stefan Lueders, Computer Security Team
Have you already joined the hype surrounding the No. 1 iOS and Android app “Pokémon GO” and started hunting for wild virtual Pokémon while walking through the real world? Have fun and catch them all!!! But also take some physical and digital care!   If you haven’t heard of “Pokémon GO”, it is an iOS and Android game in which your virtual avatar has to hunt for cute and sometimes less cute little monsters, so-called Pokémon (if you are as old as me or have kids, yes, those GameBoy, TV Series, card-game Pokémon!).

Roberto Petronzio (1949 – 2016)
Roberto Petronzio (1949 – 2016)
/
Our dear colleague Roberto Petronzio passed away on 28 July at the age of 67. He was a CERN fellow from 1977 until 1979, and then a staff member in the Theory division from 1980 until 1986. He played a significant role in our field as Professor at the University of Tor Vergata, as President of the INFN (2004-2011), and as a member of the CERN Council.   Roberto was a major contributor to the development of QCD. He was involved, among other projects, in the first complete calculation of the NLO anomalous dimensions, and in the resummation of soft gluon emission in partonic processes. He was also involved in the non-perturbative analysis of the theory. In particular, along with Cabibbo and Parisi, he was one of the first members of the APE collaboration, which managed to construct the famous series of supercomputers for numerical simulations [...]

I can’t begin a message to personnel without saluting the amazing performance of the LHC as the Geneva summer finally gets under way. Nevertheless, last week, I left CERN behind me to spend some time at the biennial EuroScience Open Forum, ESOF2016, Europe’s biggest public-facing scientific event. [...]
