The ATLAS experiment - one of the largest collaborative efforts ever attempted in science — is a particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. ATLAS physicists are studying the fundamental constituents of matter to better understand the rules behind their interactions. Their research has led to ground-breaking discoveries, such as that of the Higgs boson.

This is an in-person event. By invitation only.

ATLAS is a general-purpose particle physics experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator — at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, one of the world's largest and most respected centres for scientific research. The approval of the ATLAS Experiment was an important milestone in the history of particle physics, and construction of the ATLAS Detector — the largest detector ever constructed for a particle collider: 46 meters long and 25 meters in diameter — pushed the limits of existing technology, and ultimately led to the ground-breaking discovery of the Higgs boson.

ATLAS is a collaboration of physicists, engineers, technicians, students, and support staff from around the world, and continues discovering some of the most important innovative developments in technology and physics in the search for the unknown; exploring and discovering new phenomena beyond existing theoretical predictions
