On Saturday 5 September 2015 the international large Hadron collider Physics (LHCP) conference has concluded in Saint Petersburg. The meeting was dedicated to the work of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and other subdivisions of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN. More than three hundred specialists from thirty five different countries met in Saint Petersburg to discuss the latest theoretical and experimental results gained from the LHC.
The main focus of the LHCP 2015 conference, which was the third meeting of established scientists who specialized in the high-energy physics research, was the inspection of the perspectives of further investigations which became possible thanks to the results gained from the newly upgraded LHC.
Aside from the main theme, the conference was also touching upon fundamental problems such as the formation of the universe, the nature of dark matter, the discovery of unknown particles and the application of newly acquired theoretical knowledge in medicine.
The conduction of the event on this cutting edge topic in Saint Petersburg shows, without a doubt, the key role that Russian scientists, engineers, and programmers play in the process of world science.
“The input of Russian scientists in the international project of the Large Hadron Collider in both the past and present is very large, the ideas and innovations which the Russians have brought as well as the fact that their scientific instruments do not possess any analogues,” pointed out the Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN Sergio Bertolucci.
Our company, “INNO-MIR”, which had the honor of being the coordinator for the LHCP 2015 project, also had the chance to “touch upon” the nuclear physics and received the recognition from the head council of CERN for the high level of organization and conduction of the meeting.
The fruitful work that the scientists have done during the conference in Saint Petersburg has once again confirmed that the achievements of nuclear physics already go beyond pure theory and find practical applications in medicine and other industries. The fundamental discoveries become the basis for all the new directions of interdisciplinary investigations which push the boundaries of knowledge and determine the perspectives of the development of humanity.
