Art & Science 4: Canvas Installation

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Chiara Cattelan and Lorenzo Banchieri, two students of Liceo Marco Foscarini in Venice, are the authors of the work presented in this post, which along with the others presented in the former posts partecipates in the artistic contest for the EPS 2017 conference, organized by the EU project “CREATIONS” and sponsored by our network.

The two young artists have conceived an installation made up by two canvases set up back to back, representing a particle collision at the LHC from two different viewing angles – the one at the scale of the detector, which is Continue reading “Art & Science 4: Canvas Installation”

Art & Science 3: The Universe Between My Fingers

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Today Ivan Bianchi, professor of Contemporary art at the University of Padova, visited along with the AMVA4NewPhysics network coordinator the Liceo “Marco Foscarini” in Venice, to assess the status of the projects produced by the students for the “Arte & Scienza” contest.

The project has been described previously. In a nutshell, it foresees artistic work by high-school students, inspured by high-energy Continue reading “Art & Science 3: The Universe Between My Fingers”

Art & Science: 2 – Simmetrie

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

This is the second installment of a series of posts that will publish the results of artistic work by high-school students of three schools in Venice, who participate in a contest and exposition connected to the initiative “Art and Science across Italy“, an initiative of the network CREATIONS, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the EU.

The AMVA4NewPhysics network is sponsoring and directing the artistic production in Venice, which has taken place at Liceo Stefanini, Liceo Foscarini, Continue reading “Art & Science: 2 – Simmetrie”

Practical Tools of the Improvised Speaker

by Tommaso Dorigo

Yesterday I visited the Liceo “Benedetti” of Venice, where 40 students are preparing their artwork for a project of communicating science with art that will culminate in an exhibit at the Palazzo del Casinò of the Lido of Venice, during the Continue reading “Practical Tools of the Improvised Speaker”

INSIGHTS: a New Little Brother for AMVA4NewPhysics

by the AMVA4NewPhysics Press Office

AMVA4NewPhysics has a little brother, INSIGHTS. The latter is in fact young but not so little, as it starts big: it is a new ITN that has just been approved and will be funded for four years with 3.14 million euros, starting in September 2017. Like AMVA4NewPhysics, INSIGHTS is a child of the marriage of particle physics and statistics, and like AMVA4NewPhysics it will train highly-skilled graduate students on a wide range of topics, bringing interdisciplinarity into their genes. Finally, like its older brother, INSIGHTS has INFN as a beneficiary partner, and it will bring funding to its Naples and Padova section, in the latter case with Dorigo, who is also the scientific coordinator of AMVA4NewPhysics, as PI.

It is important to recall that the whole concept of the ITN institution, one of the “Marie-Curie Actions” of the Research Executive Continue reading “INSIGHTS: a New Little Brother for AMVA4NewPhysics”

GSI

by Tommaso Dorigo

GSI, the Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research, is a laboratory located near the town of Darmstadt, in central Germany, just a few miles away from the Frankfurt airport. The centre was founded in 1969, and has since then been a very active facility where heavy elements are studied (six rare heavy ones were in fact discovered there, including the one they named Darmstadtium!), and where Continue reading “GSI”

Recruitment Statistics

by AMVA4NewPhysics Press Office

Today we finalized a revision to a document detailing the progress of the AMVA4NewPhysics network – it is called “Progress Report” and is a deliverable, something that the Research Executive Agency of the EU expects networks to produce by a specific time. In the document the action of the network is carefully described in all its facets. In drafting the revision of the document, we came across some statistics that we think is interesting to share here. It concerns the 10 recruitment Continue reading “Recruitment Statistics”

Art And Science: Students At Work

By Tommaso Dorigo

The project “Art and Science: the colours of the Higgs boson” is in full swing in Venice, where 15 to 17-year-old students from three schools (the Liceo Stefanini, the Liceo Foscarini and the Liceo Benedetti) are producing artwork inspired by the CMS experiment and the Higgs boson. In this blog we already reported of conferences held at the schools by the Ph.D. students of the AMVA4NewPhysics network in January.  Now it is time for the students to build on the inspiration provided by those lectures and by the images of particle collisions, detector pieces, and Feynman diagrams.

Today I visited the students who participate to the project at Liceo Foscarini, and gave some hints and suggestions to the students on how to Continue reading “Art And Science: Students At Work”
