International Masterclasses 2013 on Vidyo

Each year about 6000 high school students in 28 countries come to one of about 130 nearby universities or research centres for one day in order to unravel the mysteries of particle physics. Lectures from active scientists give insight in topics and methods of basic research at the fundaments of matter and forces, enabling the students to perform measurements on real data from particle physics experiments themselves. At the end of each day, like in an international research collaboration, the participants join in a video conference for discussion and combination of their results.

Last year the videoconferences took place using Vidyo. Based on the success of last year this year the event will be repeated in Vidyo with more features and available functionality.

The event will take place in February-March 2013.
