Event Details

CERN will be hosting a TEDx event, with the theme ‘Multiplying Dimensions’, on 3 May 2013. Even though the TEDxCERN main stage will be in Geneva, we would like to share these ideas through webcast session hosted by nobel prize winner George Smoot.

TEDxCERN has an impressive list of speakers, including UCL's Hiranya Peiris on the Early Universe. Other speakers include: George Church, who will talk about the recent breakthroughs using DNA;  Lee Cronin on Networking Chemistry; Chris Lintott (formerly of UCL Astrophysics) on Citizen Science; Marc Abrahams on Improbable Research; Ian Foster, on Big Data; Londa Schiebinger, on Gendered Innovation; Maya Tolstoy, on Ocean Floor/Tidal Triggering; John Searle, on Consciousness; Eliezer Rabinovici and Zehra Sayers, on SESAME and Collaboration; and Brittany Wenger, 2012 Google Science Fair (High School) Grand Prize Winner on Research and Inspiration.

The UCL Institute for Origins and Department of Physics and Astronomy are hosting a "simulcast". Join us to watch the talks live from CERN on a high-quality webcast, and discuss the subjects with UCL researchers. Your hosts will be Nikos Konstantinidis and Ofer Lahav.

There will be three sessions, with a coffee break and a drinks reception:

  • 12:30 to 14:30: Introduction and CERN webcast (Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre)
  • 14:30 to 15:00: Coffee break
  • 15:00 to 16:45: CERN webcast
  • 16:45 to 17:15: Drinks reception (Physics Building)
  • 17:15 to 19:00: CERN webcast and Drinks reception
    • Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre: CERN webcast continues
    • Physics Building: reception continues, with additional screen showing CERN webcast

Details of the programme of talks can be found on the TEDxCERN web site. Contact Ben Waugh if you have questions.
