Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

indico search will be reestablished in the next version upgrade of the software:

Oral Presentation Collider Physics


Dr Douglas Berry (University of Illinois at Chicago)


The LHC is the worlds highest energy proton-proton collider with a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The world's largest machine is currently running at twice its designed luminosity and represents forefront of the energy frontier. The CMS detector is a multipurpose detector that features a 4 Tesla magnet and over a 100 million active channels taking data every 25 ns. It, along with its sister experiment ATLAS, is measuring the precise properties of the recently discovered Higgs boson, and leading the search for new and exciting physics: such as supersymmetry, dark matter, and extra dimensions.
