Tsukuba, February 24, 2010. Physicists from the Japanese-led multinational T2K collaboration announced today that they had made the first detection of a neutrino which had travelled all the way under Japan from their neutrino beamline at the J-PARC facility in Tokai village (about an hour north of Tokyo by train) to the gigantic Super- Kamiokande underground detector near the west coast of Japan, 295 km (185 miles) away from Tokai.

FEBRUARY 2010 - First Super-K beam neutrino candidate

Physicists from the Japanese-led multi-national T2K neutrino collaboration announce on February 24th that he first beam neutrino event candidate has been observed. It is a clear 3-ring Fully Contained event in the fiducial volume.

Unification and Gauge Mediation

Speaker: Stephane Lavignac (IPhT, Saclay)

Soft-Wall Models by Joan Antoni Cabrer

Wednesday February 17th, 14:00, IFAE Multifunctional room

I will describe the general properties of five-dimensional soft-wall models and their applications. I will show how, in a particular class of these models, one can generate a large UV/IR hierarchy with virtually no fine-tuning (arXiv:0907.5361). Finally, I will comment on how EWSB can be modeled in this kind of models.


The MAGIC Data Center fits (in the Astronomical Community)

Speaker: Ignasi Reichardt

Thursday 18th of Feb, 14:00 to 15:00, IFAE Seminar Room

The Data Center of the MAGIC Collaboration is located at PIC and makes use of ROOT-related software. MAGIC data calibration and reduction have nothing to do with usual

Medical imaging research at IFAE since 1998: accomplishments and outlook

Mokhtar Chmeissani, IFAE

Monday, February 15th, 12:00 - IFAE Seminar Room

1998 marks the start of the applied research line in IFAE with the intention to work on dosimetry detectors. Soon after the research got focused on digital imaging for medical applications such as Mammography, Bone radiology, Biopsy, and later on Nuclear medicine (Positron-Emission-Tomography,PET). IFAE

A Particle physicist's first look at Quantum Information

Wednesday February 3rd, Coffee room, at 2 pm. -Alvise Varagnolo will give his first mam-seminar.

This time our speaker will take us not to his every-day work but rather to other area equally interesting. He will share with us some thoughts and examples about how basic question of quantum theory show up also in the study of high energy particle physics:

JANUARY 2010 - 2 year Postdoctoral Position to work on CTA at IEEC-CSIC, Barcelona (within the CTA Spanish Consortium)

Within the CTA Design Study, as is the case for any large-sized telescope which features represent a large improvement -order of magnitude- in comparison with its predecessors, one of the most important activities is the in-depth analysis of the possible scientific output and its feasibility.

Particle Physics with Neutrino Telescopes

Friday March 19th, 12:00h, IFAE seminar room

Speaker: Carlos de los Heros (Uppsala University)

Second-generation neutrino telescopes are being built to explore the high energy neutrino sky, searching for cosmological point sources of neutrinos.
