1 International Masterclasses 2015 Central Coordination IPPOG meeting – 17.04.2015 - Paris

2 Summary A very good year Central coordination all in Dresden Sept 2014 to Feb 2015 –Bilow and Cecire in same office at IKTP Measurements stable –Some improvements in usabilty made –Question time via Vidyo beforehand (1 h each measurement) Increase in participation

3 Internal Communication SepAprMarFebOctJanNovDec 2014 2015 Dates announced Registration opened Info: measurements Info: video conference Question time Vidyo tests1. ScheduleInstitutes´ Profiles Circulars ~ 1 per month until Jan, then ~ 1 per week archive of circulars on „Local Organisation“ webpage, + more important material, e.g. manual for video conference, step-by-step orga list, templates …

4 Registration LHCb fully integrated, as promised Registration via doodle, started on Oct. 16, date and procedure announced well before Predefined slots, each limited to 5 participants  all VC with 2-5 participants (a few had only one) ALICE and LHCb: discussed and agreed on common dates beforehand  Procedure worked well  Exception: New institutes registering without giving contact details

5 Creating the Schedule CERN: 26.2. – 2.4.2015 (32 days) (2014: 26) 213 (199) Masterclasses (Fermilab: 45) ALICE: 18 (14) –ATLAS W: 37 (51) –ATLAS Z: 84 (67) (15) –CMS: 46 (46) (30) –LHCb: 28 (21) 51 (48) VCs with CERN; 18 with FNAL (12) 154 (144) institutes/sites registered + Vancouver + vicinity 3 ATLAS MCs this Saturday + Australia in July BUT: Several sessions (~12) cancelled on short notice

6 Video conference / CERN + FNAL Moderators: 47+18 (42+12), 40 % new Multiple recruiting channels WG VC (Kate  Katharine Leney, Michael, Marzena, Uta) –Manuals for VC for local organisers –Manual and twiki for moderators –Training for mod. at CERN 17.2. Preparation of conference rooms Reward for moderators: T-shirt from the CERN shop (Rolf/Maureen) +

7 Evaluation with CERN moderators Started 3 days ago, 17 answers so far Introduction rated 2.5 (on a 5 point scale) Twiki and manual good resources, some issues can be improved Many technical issues on institutes´ side (bad audio, connecting too late, not muted) Some institutes not well prepared (no speakers selected, no questions collected) Improved setup in rooms at CERN requested, camera angle, screens, … Moderators generally enjoyed the sessions Very detailled feedback on measurements, will be made available

8 Funding and Support Coordinator (50 % FTE) 2013-2015 funded by CERN (3 years) QuarkNet staff (time from salaried positions) Co-coordinator at Dresden - TUD senior fellowship 09/2014 – 02/2015 Student assistants: TU Dresden Funding from EPS HEPP Division in kind contributions (CERN, FNAL, Vidyo team, moderators, …)

9 Participation Statistics  193 Institutes (154 + 42)  255 Masterclasses (213 + 45)  10.500 High-school students (estimated) incl. 1040 in Fermilab-VC

10 42 Countries – New: Morocco International Masterclass Day* in October or November Virtual Masterclasses IMC in 2015

11 CMS Masterclass 2015 23 countries, 78 institutes Introduced CIMA - CMS Instrument for Masterclass Analysis: Developed July-Feb 2015 by Stefan Schoppmann and Michael Soiron (Uni Aachen), support from QuarkNet and Notre Dame Bugs first week of masterclasses – fixed Rated highly, great results CMS Masterclass very stable with continuous improvement CenterMasterclassesCountriesVideoconferencesLanguages CERN491710 FNAL291011 Combined78232112



14 ALICE : Looking for strange particles - 2015 Masterclasses 14 International Physics Masterclasses (+1 at CERN, school from New Zealand on CERN visit, 7.4.2015) Total ~ 500 participants Newcomers : Maynooth (Ireland), Trieste Feedback positive and enthusiastic Comments on collection of results –from visual analysis : too slow - maybe skip in the future? –google spreadsheets : safe? Extended sheets with statistics to be used in the future Some comments on videconference (sound quality..); too long? Measurement stable - No plans for change Virtual machine used in some cases CERN: used S’COOL lab

15 ALICE: Nuclear Modification Factor l one session on March 13 l ~80 participants at 4 institutes l Darmstadt, Germany l Frankfurt, Germany l Münster, Germany (new this year) l Prague, Czech Republic l same measurement as in previous years: l all groups ‘discovered’ the quark-gluon plasma l positive feedback from all groups and moderators of the video conference



18 Totem Masterclass Development Uta demonstrated with coaching from Giuseppe Latino Improvements: More data Data merge Plot histogram in |t| and  Now runs on Windows and Linux Needs further development: More stable Windows version Mac version Next SG Vidyo: How to best use How to move forward
