CERN Accelerating science

Summer Student News

Are you passionate about science? Do you like communicating that passion to the general public? Then come along to the 2017 CERN Summer Student Webfest on the weekend of 21-23 July!

We’re very pleased to announce our participation in a new EU project, which officially began on 1 July. The project, called DEEP-EST, aims to develop ‘a modular supercomputer tailored to the complexity of state-of-the-art simulation codes and the growing range of tasks at computing centres’.

We’re pleased to announce that CERN openlab has officially launched its new logo and design package today! We’re working on a whole new array of communications tools for the start of our new three-year phase in 2018, including a brand new website!

Today, the first students participating in the 2017 CERN openlab Summer Student Programme have arrived at CERN. In total, 37 students were selected from over 1500 applicants to the programme. The remaining students will arrive over the next two weeks.

Next week, the first 2017 CERN openlab summer students will arrive at the laboratory. For the 37 students selected, a summer of enriching work — with fascinating lectures, exciting trips, and hands-on experience with the latest ICT hardware and software — awaits.

We would like to thank each of the 1580 students who applied to the CERN openlab Summer Student Programme. This year, 37 students have been selected from 22 different countries.

Applications for the 2017 CERN openlab Summer Student Programme are now open. Apply and open a world of possibilities!

Earlier this week, this year’s CERN openlab summer students presented their work in two dedicated public ‘lighting talk’ sessions.

On Monday 15 and Thursday 18 August, this year’s CERN openlab summer students will present their work in dedicated public ‘lighting talk’ sessions.

We would like to thank each of the 1481 students who applied for this year’s CERN openlab Summer Student Programme and congratulate the students who have been selected.
