TEDxCERN: Simulcast il 3 maggio con il premio Nobel George Smoot


The TEDxCERN main stage will be at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

And we encourage all CERN member and associated institutes to host LIVE webcasts of the event. TED is all about community and bringing people together for a common cause, so webcasts should  be broadcast in a public setting that encourages discussion and exchange. We would like to see webcasts throughout the globe.

Host a TEDxCERN@(your institution’s name here)  Simulcast on May 3rd.

CERN Auditorium Simulcast to be hosted by Special Guest Host George Smoot.

Host a Simulcast event of TEDxCERN@(your institution’s name here) and  help connect science to society in your community and around the world! Encourage inter- and intra- disciplinary collaboration within the CERN community based at CERN and with the CERN extended family of 300 member institutions around the globe.

Help shape future interactions between science and society.

Reach out to further create and extend your scientific and social community by inviting select members of your community to participate in this live event (Maximum 100 audience members). Create a setting where you can initiate and engage in discussion of ideas worth spreading with colleagues from other scientific disciplines such as biology, earth science, chemistry, astronomy, and with philosophers, social scientists and artists from your university or town. Magic can happen when you share the TED experience with a like-minded and eclectic group, and it happens even more so when you actively take part in creating the experience.

Each TEDxCERN@(your institution’s name here) will be an independently held live-stream event connected to  TEDxCERN  which will take place on May 3rd, 2013 from 16:00 to 20:00 Geneva time, CET. How will it work on the day:

  • Feb – Create an page on event bright (or alike service) with the info (p.ex.,  where the event will take place at your university, whether there is an after-event..). This is the link we will show in our home pages. Note that you can only have an event hosting to up 100 people
  • March – Invite people in your community that you think it would be great for your institute to have dialogue with. Is there a philosopher, or neuroscientist, chemist, biologist or multimedia artist at your Institution or in your town that you think would be fun to meet with and to potentially collaborate?  The idea here is multiplying your dimensions.
  • April – Promote the event inside your institute by using the provided TEDxCERN posters, flyers and press release templates
  • April – Provide us an IP address of the computer that will be hosting the webcast
  • Organize a reception after the event (it’s one of the most memorable parts of a TED event; the conversations started AFTER the talks!)
