ICHEP is over, long live ICHEP

See also Chapter 3.4 of Smashing Physics.

ICHEP now moves from the parallel to the plenary sessions. Some people leave, some arrive. Some, like me, stay.

On Friday evening we had concert by a string quartet dressed as the Reservoir Dogs in the beautiful Hotel de Ville de Paris. Debussy’s slow movement was slightly spoiled by the guy behind typing on a phone which made a noise like nylon trousers. But the concert was excellent.

I loved the Saturday session on jet measurements. A jet here is a spray of particles produced by a quark or a gluon in a high energy collision. There were talks from HERA, the Tevatron and the LHC.
