Marco Peruzzi (Institute for Particle Physics, ETH Zurich) has been awarded the CHIPP Prize 2014 for the best PhD student in experimental or theoretical particle physics in Switzerland by the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics, "for his original contribution to the development of novel topologic


Among the leading candidates to describe physics beyond the standard model of particle physics is Supersymmetry, a new symmetry that posits the existence of a partner particle for each known particle in the standard model.


The year 2013 was a special year for the CMS PhD Thesis Award programme as Awards were presented to the authors of three outstanding PhD theses. In the wrap-up session of the CMS week on June 27, Awards were presented to Drs. Lorenzo Bianchini, Joern Lange, and Giovanni Petrucciani.


The data reveal that the particle discovered at CERN continues to behave just like the Standard Model predicts

A successful four years of CMS detector operation came to an end last week and now we are beginning a new chapter. The next two-years of Long Shutdown (LS2) will


The top quark is the heaviest particle in the standard model, and since its discovery in 1995 at the Tevatron collider at Fermilab, its study has become prominent in furthering our understanding of fundamental phy

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and publisher of the journal Science, has elected two CMS Collaborators, Jo

New paper charts the progress of CMS-led education initiative to empower primary school teachers towards modern physics, scientific discovery and innovation

As well as making data from particle physics research public, the CMS experiment has developed additional tools in

When the Large Hadron Collider is in operation, the cavern containing the CMS detector is an extremely inhospitable place, due to the high-energy radiation produced by the collisions.

There is no doubt that on the last Friday night of September many researchers are not only awake but also very busy explaining what they do to the public – it’s European Researchers Night.

Last week, CERN hosted the first workshop on High Energy Theory and Gender focusing on recent developments in theoretical high-energy physics and cosmology, and discussed issues of gender and equal opportunities in the field.

Congratulations to four CMS scientists, Kerstin Borras, David Saltzberg, Robin Erbacher and Paul Padley, who were elected as American Physical Society (APS) Fellows in 2018 for their exceptional contributions to the field of physics.

The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider marked the beginning of a comprehensive experimental program to measure its properties.

The CMS collaboration is presenting over 25 new results at the 39th International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP 2018) taking place in Seoul, South Korea from July 4th-July 11th, 2018.

Do you remember where you were on July 4th, 2012? If you are an American, perhaps it's not so difficult to recall that day. You might have been enjoying a barbecue with your friends and family to celebrate the national Independence Day.

The first observation of the simultaneous production of a Higgs boson with a top quark-antiquark pair is being published today in the journal Physical Review Letters (PRL).

Can machine learning assist high-energy physics in discovering and characterising new particles?

The CMS collaboration came to this year’s Quark Matter conference with fourteen new results, never shown before, and five other results recently submitted for publication.
