Visit CERN's permanent exhibitions

The Speakers Reception (Wednesday 6 June) will be hosted on the CERN campus at the Globe of Science and Innovation

At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles.

There are several exhibitions and public engagement spaces on the CERN campus. The CERN is inviting Ecsite conference participants to discover them in exclusive guided tours:

Tour n°1, on Wednesday 6 Jun, 08.30 - 12.00

Science activities will be led by scientists from the Museum, the University of Geneva and CERN. An evening of relaxation and science, rich in Creative Collisions and surprises. More
