The Large Hadron Collider – Shedding Light on the Dark Universe

by Professor Rolf-Dieter Heuer, incoming director-general of CERN

Hosted by University College Dublin,
Venue: RDS Concert Hall

As the world prepares for the start up of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN this year, experts anticipate revolutionary results explaining the origin of matter, unravelling the nature of dark matter and providing glimpses of extra-spatial dimensions or grand unification of forces and hints on dark energy. Professor Heuer is instrumental in shaping the European and international program in energy frontier physics. In this lecture, he will take a look into the future of particle physics.Professor Heuer is currently the director of high energy physics and astroparticle physics at Deutsche Electronen Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg, Germany.
