The theme for the 2016 event is “Ripples of curiosity”.
This year at TEDxCERN we explore curiosity. Ideas that started as ripples in science, technology and education are merging and converging, creating their own waves of change. Speakers will explore the innovations percolating through their fields. They will share stories about their passions and fascinations and how their research has grown from small ripples of curiosity into waves transforming the way we see and interact with the world around us.
A limited number of places are available to the general public. Attendance is by invitation only, so anyone interested must contact the organisers through the TEDxCERN website no later than midnight on 16 October. The event will also be broadcast live online and at number of webcast partner institutions.
Places have been reserved for journalists in possession of a press card; please contact the Press Office for accreditation as soon as possible and no later than 28 October. Since space is limited, they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please specify in your request if you wish to interview the speakers.
Journalists are also invited to a panel discussion the day before, Friday, 4 November, at 17.30-19.00.
