25 years have passed since the March 1992 Evian meeting, where the LHC experimental programme was launched. The Evian meeting constitutes a crucial milestone in the design and development of the LHC experiments. Detector ideas discussed at Evian evolved into Letters of Intent that were submitted between 1992 and 1995, and subsequently led to the construction of today’s highly successful LHC experiments.
The symposium will cover the history of the LHC experimental programme, the physics landscape, the development of new concepts and technologies, and the bold decisions that had to be taken in the realisation of the experiments.
The symposium will end with a jamboree reviewing recent experimental results from the LHC.
