of both. Subsequently, Belle was also upgraded to Belle II, and is expected to start taking data in February 2019. The next proton-proton collisions are expected in spring 2018, Tolk said. For two weeks from March 10, particle physicists from around the world will gather for an annual conference in Italy to present and discuss theories and recent experimental results. This year, just like the way its been the last few times, Rencontres is set to focus on searches for new physics.

The LHC has been colliding protons at 13 TeV centre-of-mass energy in 20, Siim Tolk, a research fellow at cern, the European nuclear physics lab that hosts the collider, told. Quy Nhon (Vietnam), July 15 20, 2018. With each experiment it conducted where it collided billions of protons head-on while instruments tuned in to catch the fleeting presence of ultra-rare particles and with each negative result it reported, a clutch of alternative theories were ruled out. The meeting is intended to promote fruitful collaboration between experimentalists and theorists and between various institutions, by bringing together a limited number of particle physicists in beautiful and inspiring surroundings. The hope is that scientists will be able to find something new, something the Standard Model hasnt predicted, so they can use that to work backwards to a more comprehensive theory of physics. So the Standard Model has since had to be extended to be able to account for this anomaly. The goals of this third conference are to gather scientists from around the world in Quy Nhon to share research results and management experiences, discuss environmental issues, and continue to strengthen collaborations for research and education between scientists in developed and developing countries. While the LHCb experiment at the LHC has spotted signs of this anomaly, its data has been described as messy because the LHC wasnt built to study the b quark specifically.
