The first day of the conference, Thursday, March 21, will take place on CERN’s campus. All conference participants will have the unique opportunity to visit the ATLAS Experiment which is not open to the public. This 45 minute tour involves traveling via elevator to the underground caverns where the Large Hadron Collider is housed.

Getting to CERN:

Due to security reasons, all conference participants will be required to enter and exit CERN’s campus via the bus transportation we are providing. The buses will depart promptly at 7:30am from the Movenpick Hotel. It is expected that you have checked-in with the conference registration desk the night prior or morning of before boarding the bus to receive conference materials and your name badge.

For individuals arriving directly to CERN on your own, you will need to check-in at Reception Building 33 upon arrival. Receptionists will give you instructions on how to reach the Globe conference area from Building 33. You will need to present identification to receive your registration packet and name badge. If you are planning this option, please email us with your approximate arrival time at CERN. Please note that although arrangements have been made for participants arriving on their own, we cannot guarantee entrance to CERN outside of our bus transportation. Parking availability is extremely limited and thus not guaranteed.

Security and Safety Requirements:

Your name badge is required for access to CERN and the ATLAS visits. You will also need a photo ID. For safety reasons, everyone will be required to wear a helmet and anyone with a pacemaker, who is pregnant, or wearing high heels will not be able to access ATLAS. If you have limited mobility, please contact our office to see if special arrangements can be made.

Your scheduled ATLAS visit:

Due to the large number of attendees, ATLAS visits will be held during the parallel and plenary sessions. You will be pre-assigned a non-transferable time for your ATLAS visit. This information will be sent to you via email before the conference. If for any reason you would not like to participate in the ATLAS visit, please contact our office as soon as possible. We are facing capacity limits and if you will not be participating, we would like to provide your space to someone else.
