The Opening Ceremony LIYSF 2014

24 July 2014 By LIYSF

The 56th London International Youth Science Forum officially began today on 24th July 2014. The Opening  Ceremony took place in the Ondaatje Theatre – Royal Geographical Society. To start off, there was a Flag Bearing ceremony, where the presence of each and every country here at the forum was made known to everyone. We then had the  President’s welcome from Professor Richard O’Kennedy, followed by a welcome address from Professer Debra Humphris, Vice Provost  (Education), Imperial College of London. The Key Note address was then made by Professor Peter Jenni, former ATLAS Collaboration Spokesperson.

Professor Dr. Peter Jenni presented a lecture in the field of particle physics, “The Long Journey to the Higgs Boson and Beyond at the LHC”.

Here is what a few of our participants had to say about today’s opening ceremony:

“After seeing the flag bearing ceremony, I am really looking forward to interacting with everyone and learning about the different cultures from all around the world. The very informative key note address from Professor Dr. Peter Jenni proved most interesting for  a budding physicist like myself. He highlighted the importance of collaborations between different nations and specialists in various disciplines in the Higgs Boson discovery. Based on our experience today, I know myself and the other participants are eager for a full on day tomorrow, with many more to come!”
