Visit to CERN

Seems that most dutchies will _not_ be going... so this page is probably a bit redundant

+ Practical Info

From CERN's email:

  • Date: Saturday February 20th 2010, 14:00
  • Language: English
  • Program: introductory conference (~30 min.) + film (~15 min) + visit of an experimental area (~2 hrs).
  • Do not wear open shoes or high heels.
  • Bring passport or ID (Both are valid for cross the borders of Switzerland)

We will probably combine this with a Dutch hackerspaces trip (multiple cars, train or maybe even renting a bus).

We need an 'autobahnvignet' per each car to be able to drive through Switzerland, see ANWB (dutch)

+ Transport

At this moment we are playing with the idea to drive there with cars. It is approximally 1000 km so it would be smart to use 'company' cars for it, let the employers pay :). Below a list of people who have cars and are willing to drive. We will probably need 4/5 cars. Winter tires are not necessary, but are highly recommended according to Swiss government...

  • H2os ( 3 spots left )

+ People

People interested (pending details such as exact time and cost of course):

  • larstiq
  • H2os(tim)
  • bamieater
  • Turiphro
  • Gohla
  • The trip is filled to capacity currently*, you may take a chance at the wait list over at /tmp/lab's wiki..

Also Randomdata people are interested:
For now Fish and Vis are joining, may-be more.

See for more info. *Deadline for expressing the intent to join: october 19th!*

As soon as details become available, gmc (or someone else :) will update this page.

The invitation


With the Tetalab (hackerspace @ Toulouse France)
