CERN Accelerating science

CMS experiment

LHC experiments ramp-up activities

by Panos Charitos

As CERN and its host-states gradually easen lockdown measures, activities in the accelerator complex and the experiments are now restarting to continue with major upgrades for Run 3 of the LHC.


How to search for new physics without knowing about it?

by Nuno Filipe Castro, Miguel Crispim Romão, Rute Costa Batalha Pedro (LIP)

Discussing new tools for BSM search physics at colliders employing different machine-learning techniques.  

Presenting results from MUSiC: a first generalized model-independent approach that has been employed in CMS.

CMS weighs in for the top quark

by Panos Charitos

Recently published CMS results shed more light in the top quark; one of the most peculiar known particles of the Standard Model. 

In the 2020 edition of the LHCP conference, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations presented their latest results on new signatures for detecting the Higgs boson at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. 

ATLAS and CMS experiments employ deep-learning methods in searching for rare processes and long-lived particles.

As the LHC prepares to enter an era of long luminosity and high statistics, the use of heterogeneous computing resources could help to optimize resources and prepare for future eperiments.

ATLAS and CMS joint bootcamp for analysis preservation

by Clemens Lange (CERN)


The joint analysis preservation bootcamp offered to the participants a hands-on experience on making their analyses reproducible using state-of-the-art software.


Advanced deep neural networks can have multiple applications in the design of high-granularity calorimeters for future experiments while some of the offered solutions can find applications beyond particle physics. 

AMVA4NewPhysics legacy in searches for new physics

by Anna Stakia (CMS, CERN)

The MSCA project AMVA4NewPhysics has made important contributions in developing advanced tools and training the next generation of scientists to work with vast amounts of data whether searching for new physics or developing industrial applications.
