At the conference with more than 200 participants, established researches presented the newest scientific achievements in experimental and theoretical particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology, as well as their plans for the future. At the core of the events were the latest results of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, by means of which in 2012 with collaboration of Slovenian scientists the famous Higgs boson was discovered. This is why Slovenia was chosen to host this year’s event, as Dr. Peter Križan from the local organizational committee admitted for the national radio.
FLAWLESS TECHNICAL SUPPORT
Flawless technical support throughout the six-day conference was provided by the GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre team. The biggest challenge was to reorganize the hall for 200 participants into a hall for public lecture where over 1000 listeners were expected. In 20 minutes, the GR team successfully rearranged the space, once again proving that the flexibility of the halls and the team is an advantage of the GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre.
All lectures could be watched live on the conference web site. In the Marmorna / Marble Hall at the GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre, even 1300 people listened to the legendary physicist and father of the inflationary universe theory, Prof. Alan Guth
The physicists have already left – to be followed by physicians; the next week, the GR – Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre will be hosting the ESRA congress with 1500 participants.
