Fabiola Gianotti, CERN Director General, will hold a special press-conference today. The main topic is expected to be observation in the ATLAS detector of a neutrino with an ultrahigh high energy beating all previous records, including the IceCube data.
Dr. Simon Blyth working at both Daya Bay and JUNO performed a significant step forward developing a dedicate software package Opticks which performs an optical photon simulation with help of NVIDIA GPU Technology. A great movie showing almost real time simulation can be found at this link.
Dear colleagues and JINR visitors!
On floor 1 of the Laboratory Building, a multimedia presentation of DLNP projects dedicated to the JINR jubilee is launched in the test mode.
We thank all who have taken part in creating its first version!
We hope that the presentation will be developing and getting new interesting content. Regarding adding more information to it, please contact Alesya Sazonova:
On 27 March, the authors of popular books for children and teenagers Andrei Zhvalevsky and Evgeniya Paternak come for the first time to Dubna. In the Blokhintsev Universal Library of JINR they will two meetings, with young and grown-up readers. This event is associated with the 60th anniversary of JINR and the Children’s Book Week.
This year, the annual DLNP Competition of Scientific Work was hold in compliance with new rules. All STC members took part in the voting by secret ballot.
According to the results of the ballot, the First DLNP Prize was awarded to the series of works
