Visit to CERN on 2019-02-09

As already announced on our mailing list, we were able to book a guided tour at CERN. Hopefully we'll be able to visit some of the experiments of the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) which is shut down for maintenance at this time (though emergency maintenance work may restrict access any time).

We'll meet on Saturday, 2019-02-09 at 1:30 PM at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. Since most of us will be travalleing there by train, there will be an assembly in Berne which I'll announce at a later date.

We booked the tour for 35 persons. If you want to join us, please contact me (via mail or jabber to until noon of 2019-01-18 and send me the following personal information which we are obliged to send to CERN for each visitor:

  • last name, first name, date of birth, place of birth, country of birth and nationality.

Since the locations of CERN are located on both Swiss and French ground, you'll need an ID or passport which allows you to travel into both countries (a Swiss ID is sufficient for Swiss citicens).

The registration is handled as "first come, first served", so enroll as early as possible (50% of the seats are already taken).
