Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

HCPSS 2012 Participants


Mission Statement

A new era in the exploration of the smallest scales has begun. To realize the full potential of these developments, CERN and Fermilab are jointly offering a series of "Hadron Collider Physics Summer Schools", to prepare young post docs and advanced graduate students for these exciting times in hadron collider physics.
