TEDxCERN@Monash and Virtual Visit to CMS

Monash School of Physics & Astronomy and CoEPP invite you to participate in an international TEDx event on Friday October 16 at Monash Clayton campus.

The next TEDxCERN has the theme Breaking the Rules and even though the main stage will be in Geneva, Switzerland, we would like to share these ideas through an official broadcast to Monash University. Directly following the broadcast will be a Virtual Visit to the CMS experiment at CERN.

TEDxCERN 2015 brings you ideas that challenge the norm with solutions that could transform lives. From tangible interfaces that allow human interaction via e-devices, using 3D technology as a means to revolutionize education and product fabrication, to exploring transformations of matter into habitable structures, TEDxCERN’s speakers bring you their visions for a new world. These ideas push beyond the boundaries of academia to inform our present and change our future.                         

Following the TEDxCERN broadcast will be a Virtual Visit to one of CERN's largest detectors: the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS). We invite you to join us on a virtual tour, with a direct live link to Geneva, Switzerland where physicists and engineers working at CERN will share their experience of working on CMS.  Learn about CERN, the Large Hadron Collider, and the physics that takes place there through this rare opportunity. 

The talks and virtual visit are aimed at a general audience.
