International Conference on High Energy Physics
The Australian particle physics community was honoured to host the 36th ICHEP conference in 2012 in Melbourne.
This conference has long been the reference event for our international community.
The announcement of the discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC was a major highlight, with huge international press coverage.
ICHEP2012 was described by CERN Director-General, Professor Rolf Heuer, as a landmark conference for our field.
In additional to the Higgs announcement, important results from neutrino physics, from flavour physics, and from physics beyond the standard model also provided great interest.
There were also updates on key accelerator developments such as the new B-factories, plans for the LHC upgrade, neutrino facilities and associated detector developments.
ICHEP2012 exceeded the promise expected of the key conference for our field, and really did provide a reference point for the future.
