Celebration of the Discovery of the Higgs Boson Anniversary from Africa
A celebration of the 10 year anniversary since the ATLAS and CMS experiments announced the discovery of the Higgs boson with a full-day virtual scientific symposium themed “Celebration of the Higgs Anniversary – 4th July from Africa”.
We will be commemorating the day that marks the 10th Anniversary of this great scientific achievement of the 21st Century. The talks will present an historical overview as well as the current situation and future prospects for the programmes of the African countries, Egypt, Morocco and South Africa, these being current members of the ATLAS and CMS collaborations. The African Scientific Diaspora at CERN and also the African countries that do not yet have a membership of a HEP experiment at CERN will take part in this celebration as a 5th region (as in the AU terminology). There will also be speakers representing both experiments ATLAS and CMS.
For details please see the agenda.
