PLENARY: Beyond the Standard
Presented by Dr. Sahal YACOOB on 11 Jul 2013 from 09:00 to 10:00
Type: Oral Presentation
Track: Track H - Plenaries
The lecture will discuss extensions to the standard model of particle physics which gives an incomplete description of the interactions between the basic building blocks of matter but has yet to fail an experimental test. Once the standard model has been introduced, the audience will share in the excitement of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, learning about selected results from the past year (since the Higgs boson discovery), and plans for the future when the machine restarts at a new energy. With South Africa now official part of the ATLAS and ALICE experiments the talk will also explore the uniqueness of working on an experiment with thousands of collaborators spread across the world, and why that is awesome.
