During the 12th annual meeting of the Internet Governance Forum in Geneva, CERN offers you a unique opportunity to visit our Laboratory, the birthplace of the World Wide Web, which made the Internet a reality to billions of people.

Each guided tour will include a visit to Universe of Particles, an interactive exhibition where you will discover the big questions CERN is trying to answer on the structure of matter and the laws that govern our Universe. You will also see the very first World Wide Web server! You will then be brought to CERN's Data Centre, heart of the Worldwide Large Hadron Collider's Computing Grid, processing hundreds of Petabytes of data each year!

Guided tours are free and will be given in English. The guided tour lasts about 1:30 hour on the CERN site. Booking is mandatory, seats are limited. This is a unique opportunity. Don't wait too long as booking is first come, first serve based.

Click on Registration on the left-hand side menu, pick an available date and time, provide your personal data, confirm your booking and join us at CERN!
