If you want to keep up on the latest in HEP news, here’s what you should be following this week:
- Neutrino Telescopes is happening in Venice this year, and I noticed that there’s a very active blog for the conference, with a wealth of detailed postings about the talks. At first I was very impressed that such a large group of well-informed and energetic bloggers had been organized to cover this, then realized that it’s actually just the indefatigable Tommaso Dorigo at work. He’s doing a great job covering what is going on at the conference, and if as is looking all too possible, the LHC finds no new physics besides the Higgs, neutrino experiments may be where attention focuses in the future as the best hope for this.
- In Aspen this week there’s a conference called Higgs Quo Vadis, on the current state of knowledge about the Higgs. Look for talks on Friday by Lisa Randall, Nima Arkani-Hamed and Nati Seiberg about what it all means.
- A second workshop at Moriond is going on this week. Will CMS finally release its gamma-gamma results there?
- If not at Moriond or Aspen, maybe at that LHCC meeting tomorrow?
- To keep up with the state of the LHC machine itself and plans for the future, the LHC Machine Advisory Committee is meeting later this week.
Update: One more. The HEPAP committee met this week, slides here.
