27 April 2015
Présidents de session: Stefano Mersi (CERN), Georg Auzinger (CERN)
Site: Silicon Lab Building
Visit organized by Dr. Jan Visser, INFIERI partner, responsible for production of Medipix and Timepix based X-ray detector systems, co-funder of the spin-off ASI
The visit was introduced by a lecture on "Entrepreneurship, Science and Innovation'' by Dr. Hans Roeland Poolman (ASI)
Indeed NIKHEF located in the Science Park at Amsterdam, has launched a series of spin-offs from R&D developments for experiments in High Energy Physics (ex: RASNIK, VELO-LHCb, MEDIPIX...)

Prof. Michel Spiro (CEA/IRFU,Centre d'etude de Saclay Gif-sur-Yvette (FR))
Abstract: The recent discovery of the Higgs Boson by the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the Lord of Rings, sheds new light on the intimate connection between infinitely small elementary particles, the nature of the quantum vacuum, and the infinitely large (the first nanoseconds of our Universe). I discuss this long - term collective quest...the Fellowship of the Rings...and the scientific, technological, economic, and societal benefits of this global - scale endeavor. I describe a strategy to further unravel the mysteries of infinitesimal matter and of the observable Universe as a future worldwide endeavor...the Return of the Ring.

Performance gathering representatives from Arts, Fundamental and Applied research and High tech Firms.
21 Jul 2014 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm, Auditorium of the Institute Mutualiste Montsouris, Paris, France
Abstract: High speed and high data transfer, related novel telecom technologies and massive data computing techniques, high level real time processing of the information, simulations (modelling), 3D visualization techniques are common requirements in present and future fundamental and applied research fields and therefore in our day-to-day life.
It requests closer and closer collaboration between research and high tech industry in several areas. It impacts and even revolutionizes more and more our educational and cultural lives. Arts are as usual a reflect of our sensitive perception of how in the new interconnected world, we manage to get somehow used to cope with these new tools and the access to a tsunami - like flow of information they pour on us.
It is organized as a theatre play. The actors are representatives of related high tech, of fundamental and applied research worlds and of the Arts and the interconnection between these 3 pillars of our Society is the theme of this play. An audio-visual performance by numerical artists will conclude the event.
This event has been recorded on video, soon to be available.
It is organized as a screenplay with the contributions of:
Cartoon from INTEL on « why Big Data is needed in the real world »
Dr. Yusik Kim (IBM Research NL)
‘ASTRON IBM Collab. on Exascale Technology the Dome project »
Dr. York Haemisch (Philips Digital Photon Counting),
"How Disruptive Technologies can change Medical Imaging and the associated increasing demands on data processing"
Dr Robert Patti (Tezzaron Semiconductors CEO),
« Big Data and HPC, why does it requires 3D integration ? »
Prof. Ian Shipsey and Dr. Aurore Savoy-Navarro
« LHC & Big Data for Frontier Exploration Beyond the Higgs »
« Computing the Universe » 3D movie produced by CEA Saclay
Dominique Roland, Director of Center of Arts of Enghien, City for Numerical Arts, labelled as Creative City by UNESCO since 2013,

Abstract: Organized within the Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) INFIERI (FP7-PEOPLE-2012-ITN, GA-317446), the Workshop focuses on the development of intelligent devices and tools for cutting-edge applications in Astrophysics, High Energy Physics, Medical Physics and Telecommunications.
The Workshop is held in the Campus Puerta de Toledo of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, close to the heart of the city and it is focus on the revision of the progression in the activities of all Work packages, the interconnection of all of them and definition of next steps in the project.

Abstract: Astronomy is undergoing a quiet revolution - new telescopes and new techniques being built and developed right now will change our view of the Universe for good. In this lecture, Sky at Night presenter Chris Lintott will peer into the future and predict what we will - and won't - know in twenty years' time.
