One of the world’s hubs of computation in particle physics sits inconspicuously at the corner of 56th Street and Ellis Avenue on the University of Chicago campus. Read how work from UChicago's ATLAS group and the Computation Institute helps support cutting-edge research at CERN's Large Hadron Collider.

The ATLAS experiment at CERN is one of the largest scientific projects in history, with thousands of scientists from around the world working together to analyze the torrents of data flowing from its detectors. A new analytics platform built from open source tools by CI scientists at the ATLAS Midwest Tier Center 2 will make those experiments more efficient.

Knowledge Lab granted 1.38 million dollars this week to support 15 data-driven projects about how ideas are formed and circulated. Supported by the John Templeton Foundation, the grants encompass 11 different institutions, will welcome eight new researchers to Knowledge Lab’s Metaknowledge Research Network, and support the work of eight existing members.
