It is official: CERN has just announced that on July 4, 2012, at 09:00 CEST (02:00 US Central), there will be a seminar to “raise the curtain” on the results that ATLAS and CMS will show at the International Conference on High-Energy Physics (ICHEP) in Melbourne, Australia. The press release is here:

While the event will not lend itself to “live viewing” at SMU, as the December seminar did, we’ll do our best to publish live information about the unveiling of results from ATLAS and CMS as they assess the existence of a Higgs Boson using the new data from the LHC. ICHEP will be an opportunity to go deep into these results, while I imagine that this seminar will be more “broad brush” with enough detail to explain the results from the new data.

About Stephen Sekula

Steve Sekula is an Assistant Professor of Experimental Particle Physics at Southern Methodist University. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004, and currently spends most of his time either conducting research into the Higgs boson on the ATLAS Experiment or teaching. Oh, and he blogs. We all have flaws.
