ICHEP2016 - Thursday, August 4

There's a lot going on at the biggest high energy physics conference in the world! Catch up on some of the highlights from the first day of parallel sessions.


  1. Plenty of sessions meant there was something for everyone. Sessions included: Accelerator: Physics, Performance, R&D and Future Facilities; Astro-particle Physics and Cosmology; Beyond the Standard Model; Detector: R&D and Performance; Higgs Physics; Neutrino Physics; Quark and Lepton Flavor Physics; Strong Interactions and Hadron Physics; Top Quark and Electroweak Physics; Computing and Data Handling; Dark Matter Detection; and Heavy Ions.
  2. The Beyond the Standard Model session drew plenty of activity, and the Standard Model kept its place safe in the world of physics.
  3. Also plenty of activity surrounding the top quark session:
  4. The session also sparked a Game of Particles.
