Large Hadron Collider (LHC) Masterclass FULL

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Come analyse real Large Hadron Collider data collected by the ATLAS detector. After an introduction to the LHC, particle physics, and data analysis, participants will use a specially designed visual analysis tool to inspect and analyze the results from real proton-proton collisions at the LHC. No prior experience necessary.

Participants are asked to bring their own laptop for this workshop.

** If you successfully register for this workshop, it will be confirmed in your personalized schedule. Please plan to arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session. Those not in attendance 5 minutes before the session begins will forfeit their spot to those in line. 
** If you were unable to successfully register for this workshop but were added to the waitlist and want to attend, it may still be possible if a space becomes available on the day of the session. Please plan to arrive at the venue at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the session and wait in the standby line. Open spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis to those in line. 
** By registering for a workshop, you acknowledge that Moogfest may share your email address with the instructor for the purpose of planning and coordinating this event.
