Marzia Bernardini – Chamonix 2014, 25 th Sept. Summary Introduction Methodology Activities from Projects during LS2 in LHC Maintenance Consolidations and other activities Preliminary schedule Conclusion 2 “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” Malcolm X
Marzia Bernardini – Chamonix 2014, 25 th Sept. What about LS2? The LS2 project include the activities across the LHC, Injectors and LHC experiments: Resources levelling across the accelerators one of the main challenge of LS2 !!! The activities will be declared in Plan, with a similar approval process as LS1. Practical issues: Temporary storage areas and “bases de chantier” will be installed at the earliest 6 months before, and dismounted at the latest 6 months after LS2; Buffer zone availability: most probably the existing areas are not sufficient; In this presentation LS2 @ LHC 3

Marzia Bernardini – Chamonix 2014, 25 th Sept. Conclusions LS2 is a shutdown mainly dedicated to Injectors...but in the LHC and its Experiments, Maintenance and Consolidation are important. LS2 is a good opportunity, for LHC, to prepare LS3: Anticipating as much as possible activities for LS3 (in particular HL-LHC); Focusing on RP Issues and ALARA procedures. Support activities will also be a challenge for support groups (HE, EL, CV, VSC, MME…) and coordination (MEF, Experiments TC). LS2 activities should not compromise LS3 preparation. Resources optimisation across the Accelerators and Experiments will be a key point! 25
Marzia Bernardini – Chamonix 2014, 25 th Sept. Conclusions “…While sustainability requires science, science requires people: people to do science, people to support science, and people to understand the nature of science. That’s where flagship projects like the LHC are so important. Not only do they give us valuable new knowledge, they also inspire people of all generations, helping to develop an appreciation of the nature and value of science, while encouraging the young to pursue scientific careers… ….We all benefit from sharing expertise, as the experiments at the LHC clearly demonstrate. They share knowledge while simultaneously competing strongly to get the result. After all, it is the result that counts and that benefits us all !!!” Rolf Heuer 26
