The ATLAS Experiment is a worldwide effort with over 3000 physicists and engineers - with a strong participation from 45 US universities and national labs (US-ATLAS) - at the CERN international laboratory located in Geneva, Switzerland. The project aims to improve our understanding of the Universe - its birth, evolution, current state, and future. The research offers a wide range of practical applications and educational opportunities. This event will serve as an informal introduction to ATLAS research and discuss US-ATLAS programs that new students and university groups can get involved in.
This workshop is of interest to a broader audience, from undergraduate students, to potential graduate student/postdoc/faculty mentors, and anyone interested in providing further inputs to a coordinated plan for bringing new students to particle physics.
