by Roman Lavicka. Published: 31 August 2015

When I recieved an email from CERN HR department in the beginning of April starting with the word "Congratulations", I was the happiest person in the city at that moment. My name is Roman Lavicka and I'm an undergraduate student in experimental particle physics at Czech Technical University in Prague. Next year I'm going to work on my master thesis under the supervision of Guillermo Contreras.

Everything seems amazing, but then there is something totally different.

Summer student with ALICE: an invaluable experience

by Aleksandar Rusinov. Published: 31 August 2015

Being a summer student in CERN is an invaluable experience. As a Computer Science student I was eager to understand in depth how computer systems serve the physics scientific research in CERN and to bring my humble contribution. In general terms my project was to make a visualization of the task topology  editor for the process configuration that will be running on the upgrade of ALICE computing online-offline system - O2.
