Dal 6 all’8 Dicembre 2018 si svolge la Nona Conferenza dei progetti del Centro Fermi, dedicata al progetto Extreme Energy Events - La Scienza nelle Scuole, presso il Centro di Cultura Scientifica "Ettore Majorana" a Erice (Trapani). Centocinquanta studenti provenienti dalle Scuole di tutta Italia discuteranno di raggi cosmici, presenteranno i risultati del loro lavoro, parteciperanno alle masterclass e avranno anche la possibilità di eseguire delle misure di assorbimento con le Cosmic Box, piccoli rivelatori di particelle assemblati dai ricercatori del Progetto EEE.

Polar GiornataStudi SGI

Si è svolta ieri martedì 27 novembre la Giornata di Studi “Spedizione artica PolarQuest 2018 risultati scientifici e risvolti geografici” presso la sede della Società geografica italiana - Aula Giuseppe Dalla Vedova - Palazzetto Mattei, in Villa Celimontana a Roma. L’evento, che ha visto la partecipazione del Presidente del Centro Fermi, la Professoressa Luisa Cifarelli, ha presentato i primi risultati della spedizione PolarQuest che fra il 21 luglio e il 4 settembre 2018, a bordo dell’imbarcazione ecosostenibile Nanuq ha compiuto una crociera per un totale di circa 3500 miglia nautiche, quasi sempre a nord del Circolo Polare Artico.

Nanuq si è spinto fino ad appena 864 km di distanza dal Polo Nord dove è stato svolto un campionamento di microplastiche galleggianti e una misura di raggi cosmici, da considerarsi probabilmente massimi assoluti in latitudine per le rispettive attività.

La Giornata di Studi è stata organizzata da Società geografica italiana onlus, Polarquest 1928 - 2018, GREAL, Centro Fermi, Museo Storico AM, Consiglio nazionale delle ricerche.

The International Symposium “60 YEARS OF SUBNUCLEAR PHYSICS IN BOLOGNA” will be held at the Accademia delle Scienze dell'Istituto di Bologna – Sala Ulisse, Via Zamboni 31, Bologna, Italy on 7 November 2018. The Symposium is organised by the Bologna Academy of Sciences and the Italian Physical Society (SIF), in collaboration with the Physics and Astronomy Department (DIFA) of the University of Bologna, the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and the "Enrico Fermi" Historical Museum of Physics and Study & Research Centre (Centro Fermi)

How to apply


The 2018 Course of the School of Brain Cells and Circuits will be dedicated to multiscale investigation and modeling of the motor system. Motor control is a fundamental function that characterizes the animal kingdom and has driven brain evolution toward cognition. Therefore, understanding motor control is a fundamental step for understanding how the whole brain is organized and operates. The fundamental brain structures of vertebrates that are involved will be covered in turn, including the cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, cerebellum, brain stem and spinal cord. Special attention will also be given to pathologies emerging from dysfunctions of the motor system. Different aspects motor control will be addressed at the level of cellular physiology, computational modeling and integrated brain signals using electrophysiological techniques and magnetic resonance imaging. Mathematical modeling will be emphasized for its special effectiveness in tackling motor control problems and for explaining the function of the system across multiple complexity scales. By bringing together these communities and offering advanced teaching sessions and discussion panels on key topics, the course will foster future research in the field and will make a strong methodological case on how to combine experimental and modeling approaches in order to explain how the brain works.

Measuring cosmic ray showers up to the North Pole 

by Luisa Cifarelli (University of Bologna, INFN-Bologna and Centro Fermi-Museo Storico della Fisica e Centro Studi e Ricerche "Enrico Fermi")

Abstract:

The Extreme Energy Events (EEE) experiment is meant to measure high-energy showers generated in the atmosphere by primary cosmic rays. The EEE apparatus is made of nearly 60 tracking and timing detectors distributed all over Italy, thus allowing to search for very long distance correlations between showers, up to 1200 km. The detectors, each made of three MRPCs of about 2 m2 area, have been built at CERN by high school students. They are installed inside high school buildings, maintained and monitored by the students themselves. Every year, many hundreds of students are involved in the EEE project whose dissemination impact is indeed very important.

This summer, PolarQuEEEst, a new and compact cosmic ray detector developed within the EEE project, has just taken the world’s first measurements of sea level cosmic rays, reaching the unprecedented latitude of 82°N 7. The detector has circumnavigated the Svalbard archipelago on board of Nanuq, a specially designed sailing boat within the Polarquest2018 expedition. High school students have assembled at CERN 3 such PolarQuEEEst detectors based on layers of scintillator tiles coupled to Si PMs. One has been installed on board of Nanuq at its departure from North West Iceland in July 2018, while the other two in a Norwegian and Italian high school to allow simultaneous measurements up to high Arctic latitudes, searching also for unprecedented long distance coincidences.

A photo exhibition organized by the Polarquest2018 expedition with the support of Allianz Suisse will be inaugurated just before the Colloquium in the mezzanine of building 500 at 4 pm.

Please note that a Webcast will be available for this talk.
