A September packed with events to celebrate CERN's 60th anniversary

Geneva, 1 September 2014.

On 29 September 1954, the CERN Convention entered into force, officially establishing the European Organization for Nuclear Research with 12 European member states. Now the world's biggest particle physics laboratory, CERN is celebrating "60 years of science for peace" with an official ceremony and several public events taking place throughout September.

 The highlight of this anniversary month will be the official ceremony on 29 September, which will be attended by many representatives of CERN's Member States, Associate Member States and Observers. Journalists can attend this event, subject to having obtained accreditation before 18 September via Indico.

 "With its discoveries and innovations, CERN has been bringing the world together through science for 60 years. We'd like to celebrate this important anniversary with our friends and neighbours.", said Rolf Heuer, CERN's Director General.

 CERN is also inviting the general public to several cultural events commemorating its anniversary: concerts, a film, a play, shows and lectures will all bring science to the general population, adults and children alike.
