Lee Gives Invited Plenary Talk at Symposium on Physics in Collision

Sung-Won Lee, Associate Professor in the Department of Physics, gave an invited plenary talk on “High-energy jet spectra and strong coupling constant measurements up to the scale of the Top quark” at the 34th International Symposium on Physics in Collision, Sept. 16-20 on the Indiana University campus in Bloomington. Lee presented an experimental overview on the QCD (Quantum chromodynamics), the theory of strong interactions, from four major experiments, ATLAS and CMS at LHC (proton-proton collider at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland) and H1 and ZEUS at HERA (electron-proton collider at DESY, Hamburg, Germany), on behalf of all collaborations.

Lee also gave a talk entitled “What’s Next for the Large Hadron Collider?” at the 2014 US-Korea Conference on Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship (UKC 2014), in San Francisco. Lee summarized the latest experimental results from the LHC experiments and presented a road map for the High Energy Physics program at CERN LHC over the next 10 years. He also served as a co-organizer of the “High Energy and Nuclear Physics” session during the UKC 2014 conference.
