Profs Elisabetta Barberio and Geoff Taylor organised a symposium to promote and establish collaboration between Australian and Italian physicists.

Held on July 12, a day after the international conference ICHEP 2012 closed, speakers from both countries discussed current and future studies.

"Italy is a super-power in particle physics. This event will help raise Australia’s profile and lead to exchanges on experiments.

"Common interests include diamond detectors, accelerator physics and dark matter searches," said Elisabetta.

The event took place at the School of Physics building and included speakers from the University of Melbourne, Australian Synchrotron, CERN, INFN and Italian universities.
