Megascience Global Projects Seeded in Europe, Asia, and the United States

Friday, February 12, 2016: 3:00 PM-4:30 PM
Marshall Ballroom East (Marriott Wardman Park)
This symposium surveys the mechanisms and cross-national platforms that facilitate international science partnerships. It draws its examples from the large-scale high energy physics projects. Highlighted are the CERN model of international collaboration for the Large Hadron Collider; the planned particle physics projects in China: the Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) for neutrino physics and the Circular Electron Positron Collider – Super Proton-Proton Collider (CepC/SppC) for collider physics; and the expanded Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) model for gravitational physics.
