Goal and objectives
In the spirit of CBG (transparency, honesty, sharing and collaboration) the following objectives are set for the Conference:
- To connect CERN community of Baltic States
- To induce collaboration: who is doing what? What are interests, topics, competences, aspirations?
- To provide multidisciplinary networking platform where individual researchers, scientific groups and companies from Baltic States can find synergies and opportunities for collaboration
- To inform and to engage stakeholders and industry across Baltic States
The conference aims the coordination of the Baltic research institutions activities towards CERN and related collaborations/experiments for strengthening and development Baltic CERN directional research community.
Scope and topics
This is scientific and technical conference to cover all spectrum of CERN related activities (e.g. research, engineering, computing, industrial and policy).
Topics are related, however, not limited to: Accelerator and Detector Technologies, High Energy Physics as well as Data gathering and data analysis. From physics to engineering, from fundamental science to industry. Topics will be logically linked to the CBG activities within the CERN collaborations, experiments and studies: such as CMS, CLIC, FCC, MEDICIS, AEGIS and CLOUD.
Target audience and participants
CERN related researchers, engineers, students (of all levels) and industrial representatives (incl. CERN Industrial Liaison Officers of EE, LT and LV) as well as stakeholders of Baltic States.
