Course on Physics at the LHC

A specialized course on the Physics at the Large Hadron Collider is organized by LIP in the framework of the International Doctorate Network in Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology (IDPASC). The course is intended for under-graduate or graduate students with basic training in Particle Physics.

The objective of the Course is to introduce the physics, analysis methods and results on the physics areas covered by the LHC experiments.

Data Science in (Astro)Particle Physics and the Bridge to Industry

LIP and IDPASC are organising from 12th to 16th March 2018 in Lisbon, the event Data Science in (Astro)Particle Physics and the Bridge to Industry.

The goal of this event is to show the synergies between fundamental research and applied Data Science in the society.  In the the first three days a school on Data Science for fundamental physics will be held. The target audience is undergraduate and PhD students, as well as young researchers. 

Spin-orbit coupling in the Solar System

Por Alexandre Correia (Universidade de Aveiro).

Abstract: Recent developments in the study of the Solar System dynamics have shown that it is not such a quiet place. Mutual interactions between all bodies may destabilise the orbits and the spins of all terrestrial planets and satellites. Chaotic motion is everywhere and our present quiet Earth will likely experience exotic changes in a billion years. In this talk we will review the major spin-orbit interactions taking action in our Solar System.
