  In order to do shifts in the ATLAS control room, you should first contact Saverio D'Auria introducing yourself and describing what you want to do (e.g. ID shifts). Saverio should then guide you on the appropriate path, which could involve contacting Per Johansson (per.johansson@cern.ch), the SCT run coordinator, and Dave Robinson, the SCT project leader (dave.robinson@cern.ch). Following this contact, you'll be added to the list that allows you to book shifts on the ATLAS OTP system.

The Staff Rules and Regulations are absurdly vague, so if you do something CERN doesn't like, the rules can likely be retroactively defined in such a way as to ensure that you have broken them in some way. CERN computing rules are defined in Operational Circular Number 5. If you break a CERN "rule" and do so using CERN computer systems, then CERN'll automatically say that you've broken the computing rules too. CERN records a great deal, including every visible interaction you have with the internet and which Wi-Fi access points you are using, so, you should consider protecting yourself.

  The CERN registration form registers you at CERN and grants you access to the CERN computer network and a CERN access card. Be sure to do this, as waiting to gain access to computers and the internet while at CERN can be frustrating because you need this for physics analysis and relaxing on the physics thread of 4chan /d/.

The home institute declaration is a form that is required by the CERN User's Office each time you renew your CERN affiliation. There is the absurd belief at CERN that signatures are secure and, so, if a signature on this form appears to have been pasted into the document, they refuse it, likely frustrating your efforts to do science. In order to avoid this, reduce the quality of the PDF and remove its layers by converting it to a bitmap image and then into a PDF.

  Mostly, you will use Swiss Francs (CHF), but Euros are accepted often and are needed for shopping in France (which is often cheaper than Switzerland). The best exchange rates are offered often with student accounts at banks (e.g., RBS). Note that generally banks require a day or two of notice in order to acquire Swiss Francs. Alternatively, Marks & Spencer offers generally decent exchange rates. There are some online methods that can reduce exchange costs further.

Next, go to the ATLAS Secretariat on the top floor of the D wing of building 40 (the ATLAS/CMS building) and hand in your ATLAS registration form in order to get put onto the HR database. After the ATLAS registration, you can order a key for your office. For this, you simply fill out a requisition form(backup PDF copy, backup ODT copy) and send a copy of the form (a PDF is fine) to the ATLAS Secretariat. It takes about a day to have your new key made. You receive an e-mail when it is available and can collect it in building 55.

  Now, go to the ID Office in building 22 (which is near to gate B). Go up to the top floor first. Here you will receive details (user name and passcode) for internet access. You will also be instructed to do the Safety Information Registration (SIR). It is a set of online questions and it is not difficult. Now, go down to the ground floor. If you want, there are toilets on the ground floor with mirrors, so you can make yourself look very attractive before your photograph is taken. On the ground floor, you can get your photograph taken and your new CERN access card. Finally, go to your office, sit down and relax after all of that exercise.

  It takes about a day to be put onto the HR database and you should be on this in order to register any portable computers you want to use at CERN. When you gain access to the CERN network, you can do the Safety Information Registration (SIR) by going to https://sir.cern.ch/. It is straightforward and some of the questions are quite amusing.

Restaurant 1 (R1)

  You can get decent food at Restaurant 1 in CERN. There are various areas to eat in; try them out. It is nice to sit outside with good weather, a view of Le Salève (a mountain) and the ATLAS building. Some food is available throughout the day, but there is more food available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While the food is good, the conversation is the main thing that you go for. High quality physics talk is available in abundance.

Restaurant 1 is the only restaurant at CERN that is open at weekends and in the evenings for dinner.

CERN bicycles are provided free of charge. These are nice bikes that are serviced regularly and are a lovely way to get to CERN from Saint Genis-Pouilly, Meyrin or Mordor. How do you get one? First, fill out this form (or possibly this form) as necessary. Bring the form to the ATLAS secretariat. There, you can get it signed and stamped. Now, bring the form to building 124. There is a deposit of CHF100 to pay, which is returned to you when you return the bike, assuming you have not blown it up or something. You could consider requesting a bike with a front carrier on it if you think it would be a good idea to carry a small bag (/animal/drunken person) in it. You should receive an e-mail in a day or so letting you know that your bike is ready for collection.

The Staff Rules and Regulations are absurdly vague, so if you do something CERN doesn't like, the rules can likely be retroactively defined in such a way as to ensure that you have broken them in some way. CERN computing rules are defined in Operational Circular Number 5. If you break a CERN "rule" and do so using CERN computer systems, then CERN'll automatically say that you've broken the computing rules too. CERN records a great deal, including every visible interaction you have with the internet and which Wi-Fi access points you are using, so, you should consider protecting yourself.

For the access points, the obvious things are to set devices either to not use Wi-Fi or to set them to use only certain access points.

For the internet access, Tor and VPN services can be of use because they can provide ensure that you are not directly using CERN computer systems.

AirVPN

AirVPN is based in Italy and offers servers in 15 countries, most of which are in Europe except for those in the US, Canada and Hong Kong. AirVPN supports only the OpenVPN protocol, regarding PPTP and L2TP/IPsec as being too insecure. Users can have up to 3 simultaneous connections. AirVPN permits users to P2P download from any of its servers. Up to three devices can be connected simultaneously with the same account. AirVPN offers VPN through Tor. In this configuration, the user connects first to the Tor network and then to AirVPN. This means that AirVPN does not have access to the user's IP address.

setup

The only personal information requested for signup is a valid e-mail address. Bitcoin payments are made via CoinBase. Once payment is made, the user receives a welcome e-mail containing useful links.

Eddie, the AirVPN client, can be set up on Ubuntu 16.04 using the following procedure:

%CODE{"bash"}% wget https://airvpn.org/repository/2.10/airvpn_linux_x64_debian.deb?r=0.6541006921488108

sudo apt-get -y install gksu sudo apt-get -y install mono-runtime sudo apt-get -y install mono-utils sudo apt-get -y install mono-reference-assemblies-2.0 sudo apt-get -y install openvpn sudo apt-get -y install stunnel4 sudo apt-get -y install mono-devel

AirVPN can be set up on Cyanogen or Android using the following procedure:

  • Set up OpenVPN for Android.
  • Generate configuration files using the OpenVPN Configuration Generator. For example, configuration files for various countries can be generated, yielding files like AirVPN_France_TCP-443.ovpn.
  • Access OpenVPN for Android.
  • Select the import icon and then import .ovpn files as appropriate (selecting the floppy disk icon).
  • Select an imported profile to connect.

CERN bicycle

Changed:

CERN bicycles are provided free of charge. These are nice bikes that are serviced regularly and are a lovely way to get to CERN from Meyrin or Saint Genis-Pouilly. How do you get one? First, fill out this form (or possibly [[http://atlassec.web.cern.ch/atlassec/Bicycle_form.pdf][this form]) as necessary. Bring the form to the ATLAS secretariat. There, you can get it signed and stamped. Now, bring the form to building 124. There is a deposit of CHF100 to pay (which is returned to you when you return the bike, assuming you have not blown it up or something). You could consider requesting a bike with a front carrier on it if you think it would be a good idea to carry a small bag (/animal/something else) in it. You should receive an e-mail in a day or so letting you know that your bike is ready for collection.

Mail2Print print service

Mail2Print is a simple CERN service by which you can have something printed by sending an e-mail with an attachment to an automated system. There is a selection of printers available in the service, including duplex, colour printers.

A procedure for using the service could be something like the following:

  • Send a blank e-mail with the attachment to print to mail2print.service@cern.ch.
  • Receive an automated confirmation response to this e-mail with a link that is current for 24 hours.
  • Access the link.
  • Set the print to be duplex if necessary (it is set to duplex by default).
  • Select a printer identifier by clicking on its identifier. Colour printers have a colour wheel to the right of their identifiers and all printers have a map link to the right of their identifiers.
  • Select to print either in colour or black and white.

example good colour printer:

  • identifier: 2-1065-CAN
  • 002-1-065
  • colour
  • duplex

In order to do shifts in the ATLAS control room, you should first contact Saverio D'Auria introducing yourself and describing what you want to do (e.g. SCT shifts). Saverio should then guide you on the appropriate path, which'll likely involve contacting Per Johansson (per.johansson@cern.ch), the SCT run coordinator and Dave Robinson, the SCT project leader (dave.robinson@cern.ch). Following this contact, you'll be added to the list that allows you to book shifts on the ATLAS OTP system.

changing ATLAS shifts

To change shifts, you should contact the appropriate e-mail list of shifters. You can access the appropriate list via OTP. Simply select the "Send" link that is listed with the appropriate type of shift. You simply state what you want to do (e.g. swap shift X for something else, say in month Y), send an e-mail to the list of shifters and hope for a response.

If you get a response and can agree on a swap with another shifter, just send an e-mail requesting this swap.

It is preferable to purchase tickets before boarding the transport. For some routes (including the Bus Y route), you may have to purchase tickets using an enboard ticket machine. If there are too many people to allow you to purchase the ticket in time, be sure to tell the driver (shouting if necessary) that you are trying to buy your ticket.

The CERN registration form registers you at CERN and grants you access to the CERN computer network and a CERN access card. Be sure to do this, as waiting to gain access to computers and the internet while at CERN can be frustrating because you need this for physics analysis and relaxing on the physics thread of 4chan /d/. You should bring some type of evidence of health insurance such as an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card). If you don't happen to have this evidence with you for some reason, the application of witchery can give you some temporal leeway in this regard.

The home institute declaration is a form that is required by the CERN User's Office each time you renew your CERN affiliation. There is the absurd belief at CERN that signatures are secure and, so, if a signature on this form appears to have been pasted into the document, they refuse it, likely frustrating your efforts to do science. In order to avoid this, reduce the quality of the PDF and remove its layers by converting it to a bitmap image and then into a PDF.

Fête nationale Suisse

On the first of August (actually "early August"), the three Alpine cantons Schwyz, Uri and Unterwalden swore the oath of confederation with the Federal Charter of 1291. This is regarded as the foundation of Switzerland and Swiss National Day is a celebration of the event.

Meyrin

There is a fireworks display in Meyrin on the first of August that features decent fireworks, a bonfire and very cheesy music. It takes place in the friendly atmosphere of rows of tables of people with children collecting cans and bottles in exchange for fireworks.

 

homeward bound

The CERN shuttle from CERN to the airport leaves from building 500 on each hour.

CERN Stores

how to order something from CERN stores

Access the https://edh.cern.ch/edhcat/Browser. Let's assume the thing to get is an Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter. The details are as follows:

SCEM code unit unit price stock expected delivery direct delivery description/designation reference/information
80.99.02.060.0 PC 28.0 29 14.07.2015 >=7 Adaptator Mini DisplayPortto DVI APP-MB570Z-B

Select the basket to buy the item. You should pass now to the dark realm of EDH. Enter the budget code [TOP SECRET], save the document and then send the document. If you're with Glasgow, you could e-mail Richard Bates to confirm the details.

 

become a CERN guide

You can inspire people to sacrifice themselves to science by becoming a CERN guide.

  When you are in the baggage collection area, remember to collect a free public transport ticket provided by Geneva airport! This is ideal for getting to wherever you need to go when you arrive and means that you don't have to worry about having CHF change on arrival. The ticket machine could be quite easy to miss.

CERN bicycle

CERN bicycles are provided free of charge. These are nice bikes that are serviced regularly and are a lovely way to get to CERN from Meyrin or Saint Genis-Pouilly. How do you get one? First, fill out this form (or possibly [[http://atlassec.web.cern.ch/atlassec/Bicycle_form.pdf][this form]) as necessary. Bring the form to the ATLAS secretariat. There, you can get it signed and stamped. Now, bring the form to building 124. There is a deposit of CHF100 to pay (which is returned to you when you return the bike, assuming you have not blown it up or something). You could consider requesting a bike with a front carrier on it if you think it would be a good idea to carry a small bag (/animal/something else) in it. You should receive an e-mail in a day or so letting you know that your bike is ready for collection.

Carrefour Market (supermarket)

Added:
>
>
Following the riotous response of large numbers of Muslims to the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons in 2005, Carrefour removed Danish products from its shelves. On the other hand, it continues to stock Charlie Hebdo in spite of the murderous attack on it by Islamists in 2015. So, Carrefour is a bit of a mixed bag. As well as this, watch out for its fruit and vegetable products -- they can be more out-of-date than they seem!

  The little "Saut de puce" 2 CHF ticket is a tempting and rational ticket for the journal between Saint-Genis-Pouilly and CERN, but it is not the right ticket. The correct one is the "Short trip" 3.40 CHF ticket because you're crossing a border. Ugh. You can walk the journey as an alternative.

too many cooks

It is preferable to purchase tickets before boarding the transport. For some routes (including the Bus Y route), you may have to purchase tickets using an enboard ticket machine. If there are too many people to allow you to purchase the ticket in time, be sure to tell the driver (shouting if necessary) that you are trying to buy your ticket.

A detailed map of the tunnels can be found in the CERN Geographic Information System (GIS). Access https://gis.cern.ch/gisportal/. At the bottom of the left pane, select "Ajout de Données" ("Adding data"). Then, under "Données CERN" (CERN data), select "SOUS_SOL".

KMZ maps are available for download from the CERN GIS, allowing for portable, unnetworked devices to display a map of CERN. The Garmin eTrex 30 can display KMZ maps, as can standard Android devices. In order to download a KMZ map file, access the appropriate map, select the icon "Map Files" on the left, then select "Save to map file".

travelling between Saint-Genis-Pouilly and CERN

The little "Saut de puce" 2 CHF ticket is a tempting and rational ticket for the journal between Saint-Genis-Pouilly and CERN, but it is not the right ticket. The correct one is the "Short trip" 3.40 CHF ticket because you're crossing a border. Ugh. You can walk the journey as an alternative.

too many cooks

It is preferable to purchase tickets before boarding the transport. For some routes (including the Bus Y route), you may have to purchase tickets using an enboard ticket machine. If there are too many people to allow you to purchase the ticket in time, be sure to tell the driver (shouting if necessary) that you are trying to buy your ticket.

TPG SMS-Ticket

Within Geneva (probably only), you can get an SMS ticket. In order to use this you need a telephone with a Swiss SIM card and you need to know the appropriate ticket code. The ticket codes are as follows:

code ticket cost
tpg1 "Tout Genève" 1 hour, full fare CHF 3
tpg2 "Tout Genève" 1 hour, reduced fare CHF 2
CJ1 "Tout Genève" day card, full fare CHF 10
CJ2 "Tout Genève" day card, reduced fare CHF 7.30
CJ91 "Tout Genève" day card from 09:00, full fare CHF 8
CJ92 "Tout Genève" day card from 09:00, reduced fare CHF 5.60

Send an SMS to 788 containing the appropriate ticket code (e.g. tpg1). The SMS-Ticket should be something like the following:

GENEVE
Billet zone 10
7h53
4561112-4521152871252-FGBH121255245

  When you are in the baggage collection area, remember to collect a free public transport ticket provided by Geneva airport! This is ideal for getting to wherever you need to go when you arrive and means that you don't have to worry about having CHF change on arrival. The ticket machine could be quite easy to miss.

Restaurant 1

You can get decent food at Restaurant 1 in CERN. There are various areas to eat in; try them out. It is nice to sit outside with good weather, a view of Le Salève (a mountain) and the ATLAS building. Some food is available throughout the day, but there is more food available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While the food is good, the conversation is the main thing that you go for. High quality physics talk is available in abundance.

In order to book a van, first select its coloured box at the top right of the page. The calendar should display now the times for that specific van now. Click the start time slot in the calendar and a dialog called "New Reservation" should appear. Details such as the following can be specified:

  • when:
    • 6/3/2015 9:00
    • to
    • 6/3/2015 12:00
  • full name: William Breaden Madden
  • phone: 75950
  • experiment: ATLAS
  • institute: Glasgow
  • destination: CERN Prévessin
  • UKLO-vans: StrangeQuark

When the details are specified, select "Create Reservation". If everything went well, the message " Reservation successfully created" should be displayed now above the van's calendar. Your reservations appear in the calendar with stripes over the colour.

 

CERN bicycle

CERN bicycles are provided free of charge. These are nice bikes that are serviced regularly and are a lovely way to get to CERN from Meyrin or Saint Genis-Pouilly. How do you get one? First, fill out this form (or possibly [[http://atlassec.web.cern.ch/atlassec/Bicycle_form.pdf][this form]) as necessary. Bring the form to the ATLAS secretariat. There, you can get it signed and stamped. Now, bring the form to building 124. There is a deposit of CHF100 to pay (which is returned to you when you return the bike, assuming you have not blown it up or something). You could consider requesting a bike with a front carrier on it if you think it would be a good idea to carry a small bag (/animal/something else) in it. You should receive an e-mail in a day or so letting you know that your bike is ready for collection.

In order to do shifts in the ATLAS control room, you should first contact Saverio D'Auria introducing yourself and describing what you want to do (e.g. SCT shifts). Saverio should then guide you on the appropriate path, which'll likely involve contacting Per Johansson (per.johansson@cern.ch), the SCT run coordinator and Dave Robinson, the SCT project leader (dave.robinson@cern.ch). Following this contact, you'll be added to the list that allows you to book shifts on the ATLAS OTP system.

In order to do shifts, you'll need to do online safety courses, a day of shift training and a shadow shift (during which you are shown how to do a shift).

The old ATLAS Detector Operation page is here: https://atlasop.cern.ch/operation.php

The new ATLAS Detector Operation page is here: https://atlasop.cern.ch/mobile.php

ATLAS OTP shift booking procedure

Go to OTP. https://atlas-otp.cern.ch/mao/client/cern.ppt.mao.app.gwt.MaoClient/MaoClient.html#home

There are two main parts to the homepage: "Book My Shifts" and "Find My Shifts". If it is not already expanded, expand "Book My Shifts" by selecting "+". Under "Book My Shifts" is a list of all shifts you are allowed to book. The number "Id" is the task identifier for the shift. Select the number of the shift you want to book. Now should be visible the page "Shift Booking", referencing the selected single shift. In order to expand the section, select the "+" next to the name of the shift. A calendar should be displayed.

Select the start month and the number of months to display as appropriate. As the colour codes listed describe, pink shifts are unallocated. Select any pink shifts that you wish to book. They should turn green. To save the shifts selected, select "Save Shift Booking". Congratulations! You have now booked shifts in the ATLAS control room.

  The CERN registration form registers you at CERN and grants you access to the CERN computer network and a CERN access card. Be sure to do this, as waiting to gain access to computers and the internet while at CERN can be frustrating because you need this for physics analysis and relaxing on the physics thread of 4chan /d/.

  Now, go to the CERN Users' office in building 500 and hand in your CERN registration form (making sure both sides are filled in). You should also hand in evidence of health insurance. If you don't have it, you can send it to the person you register with at a later date.

It takes about a day to have your new key made. You receive an e-mail when it is available and can collect it in building 55.
  Now, go to the ID Office in building 22 (which is near to gate B). Go up to the top floor first. Here you will receive details (user name and passcode) for internet access. You will also be instructed to do the Safety Information Registration (SIR). It is a set of online questions and it is not difficult. Now, go down to the ground floor. If you want, there are toilets on the ground floor with mirrors, so you can make yourself look very attractive before your photograph is taken. On the ground floor, you can get your photograph taken and your new CERN access card. Finally, go to your office, sit down and relax after all of that exercise.

This machine is temperamental at the moment. It appears to have a certain distaste for drawing in paper (i.e., the rollers are probably dirty), though there is a trick for making it draw in paper (see the manual for how to do this). Also, it appears to have a damaged sensor that is used for calibration (i.e., the sensor that the printer uses to measure its length is not working) that prevents the printer from completing its bootup procedure. Do not try to trick the printer into working by feeding it whiskey.

CERN bicycle

CERN bicycles are provided free of charge. These are nice bikes that are serviced regularly and are a lovely way to get to CERN from Meyrin or Saint Genis-Pouilly. How do you get one? First, fill out this form (or possibly [[http://atlassec.web.cern.ch/atlassec/Bicycle_form.pdf][this form]) as necessary. Bring the form to the ATLAS secretariat. There, you can get it signed and stamped. Now, bring the form to building 124. There is a deposit of CHF100 to pay (which is returned to you when you return the bike, assuming you have not blown it up or something). You could consider requesting a bike with a front carrier on it if you think it would be a good idea to carry a small bag (/animal/something else) in it. You should receive an e-mail in a day or so letting you know that your bike is ready for collection.

The bus stop you will need to get somewhere (i.e., CERN) is likely to be the one on the corner as you leave the airport. As vague instructions, after you pass from the baggage collection area to the foyer, turn left, following signs for buses, and, eventually, you will reach a yellow escalator. Go up this escalator and, at the top, turn back on the direction in which you came, exit that way and you will be standing essentially at the bus stop.

You may find that the numbers of CERN buildings are confusing. Rest assured that the numbering system of CERN buildings is highly intelligent and that you are simply too stupid to understand it.

site nomination serial number
Meyrin offices, laboratories 1--99
Meyrin workshops, warehouses, garages 100--199
Meyrin general and special equipment 200--299
Meyrin SC accelerators and annexes 300--349
Meyrin PS accelerators and annexes 350--374
Meyrin new accelerators and annexes 375--399
Meyrin roads, car parks, storage zones 400--499
Meyrin miscellaneous buildings 500--549
SPS/Prevessin offices, laboratories, SPS halls 860--1000
SPS/Prevessin roads, car parks, storage zones 1000--1099

Note that roads are classified as buildings and that CERN hostels are sometimes classified as offices. Why is there a gap between 549 and 860?, I hear you cry. Well, those are simply the serial numbers of the CERN buildings on the planet Hercolubus.

CERN Market

It is a nice flat with three bedrooms, Wi-Fi, a stereo system, a telephone, a washing machine/spin-drier, a shower and the other usual things you would expect in a flat. There is also a television, if you are inclined towards such retro things. There is a great view of the Jura mountains to wake up to each morning. You can view the availability and book the CERN flat here (for the year 2013).

  It takes about a day to be put onto the HR database and you should be on this in order to register any portable computers you want to use at CERN. When you gain access to the CERN network, you can do the Safety Information Registration (SIR) by going to https://sir.cern.ch/. It is straightforward and some of the questions are quite amusing.

Go up this escalator and, at the top, turn back on the direction in which you came, exit that way and you will be standing essentially at the bus stop.

Public transport information can be accessed at TPG.

To go from the airport to CERN, you may be able to take one of the following routes:

  • Take bus 57 (going in the direction of Gare de Meyrin) from the airport to Blandonnet and then take tram 18 (going in the direction of CERN) from Blandonnet to CERN.
  • Take bus 23 (going in the direction of ZIPLO) from the airport to Blandonnet and then take tram 18 (going in the direction of CERN) from Blandonnet to CERN.
  • Take bus Y (going in the direction Val-Thoiry) from the airport to CERN.


The following information may be dated or obsolete:

  In order to go from the airport to CERN, take bus 57 (in the direction Gare Vernier-Meyrin) to Hôpital-La Tour and then take the tram (on Route de Meyrin) to CERN. The tram stops outside building 33, the reception building.

Now, go to the ID Office in building 22 (which is near to gate B). Go up to the top floor first. Here you will receive details (user name and passcode) for internet access. You will also be instructed to do the Safety Information Registration (SIR). It is a set of online questions and it is not difficult. Now, go down to the ground floor. Here, you can get your photograph taken and your new CERN access card. If you want, there are toilets on the ground floor with mirrors, so you can make yourself look very attractive before your photograph is taken. Finally, go to your office, sit down and relax after all of that exercise.

You will also be instructed to do the Safety Information Registration (SIR). It is a set of online questions and it is not difficult. Now, go down to the ground floor. If you want, there are toilets on the ground floor with mirrors, so you can make yourself look very attractive before your photograph is taken. On the ground floor, you can get your photograph taken and your new CERN access card. Finally, go to your office, sit down and relax after all of that exercise.
  In case of problems etc., you can go to the CERN UK Liason Office. Here, you can ask questions and send and receive faxes (for those signatures you may have forgotten to get...).

It takes about a day to be put onto the HR database and you should be on this in order to register any portable computers you want to use at CERN. When you gain access to the CERN network, you can do the Safety Information Registration (SIR) by going to https://sir.cern.ch/. It is straightforward and some of the questions are quite amusing.

  This machine is temperamental at the moment. It appears to have a certain distaste for drawing in paper (i.e., the rollers are probably dirty), though there is a trick for making it draw in paper (see the manual for how to do this). Also, it appears to have a damaged sensor that is used for calibration (i.e., the sensor that the printer uses to measure its length is not working) that prevents the printer from completing its bootup procedure. Do not try to trick the printer into working by feeding it whiskey.

CERN bicycles are provided free of charge. These are nice bikes that are serviced regularly and are a lovely way to get to CERN from Meyrin or Saint Genis-Pouilly. How do you get one? First, fill out this form as necessary. Bring the form to the ATLAS secretariat. There, you can get it signed and stamped. Now, bring the form to building 124. There is a deposit of CHF100 to pay (which is returned to you when you return the bike, assuming you have not blown it up or something). You could consider requesting a bike with a front carrier on it if you think it would be a good idea to carry a small bag (/animal/something else) in it. You should receive an e-mail in a day or so letting you know that your bike is ready for collection.

CERN and ATLAS registration forms

Line: 22 to 22
 
Changed:
<
<
The CERN registration form registers you at CERN and ultimately grants you access to the CERN computer network and a CERN access card. Be sure to do this, as waiting to gain access to computers and the internet while at CERN can be frustrating. You should bring some type of evidence of health insurance. If you don't happen to have this evidence with you for some reason, the application of witchery can give you some temporal leeway in this regard.

Mostly, you will use Swiss Francs (CHF), but Euros are often accepted and are needed for shopping in France (which is often cheaper than Switzerland). The best exchange rates will often be offered with student accounts at banks (e.g., RBS). Note that generally banks require a day or two of notice in order to acquire Swiss Francs. Alternatively, Marks & Spencer offer generally decent exchange rates.

  English usually works, but having some French will help you. If you do not know a great deal of French, Google Translate is getting very good and you could have this at the ready on your mobile telephone. If you feel inclined to learn some French (or other languages, for that matter), you might consider trying out Memrise, a nifty learning website.

  When you are in the baggage collection area, remember to collect a free bus ticket! These are ideal for getting to wherever you need to go when you arrive and mean that you don't have to worry about having CHF change on arrival. The ticket machine could be quite easy to miss. It looks like this:

The bus stop you will need to get somewhere (i.e., CERN) is likely to be the one on the corner as you leave the airport. For vague instructions, after you pass from the baggage collection area to the foyer, turn left, following signs for buses, and eventually you will reach a yellow escalator. Go up this and, at the top, come back on yourself, exit that way and you will be essentially standing at the bus stop.

  In order to go from the airport to CERN, take bus 57 (in the direction Gare Vernier-Meyrin) to Hôpital-La Tour and then take the tram (on Route de Meyrin) to CERN. The tram stops outside building 33, the reception building.

  On arrival, go to Reception in building 55. Identify yourself (using something such as a passport) and your contact person (perhaps your supervisor). It would be useful to make sure that this person is contactable by telephone when you arrive. Receive a printed temporary pass card (which lasts for 2 days) and get yourself a nice little fold-up map of CERN.
Line: 116 to 116
  Now, go to the ID Office in building 22 (which is near to gate B). Go up to the top floor first. Here you will receive details (user name and passcode) for internet access.

Remember that VoIP services are available (often for free) using the Wi-Fi. Obviously, this works only if you are not trying to call people from a more civilised age (read: primitive age).

  It takes about a day to be put onto the HR database and you should be on this in order to register any portable computers you want to use at CERN. When you gain access to the CERN network, you can do the Safety Information Registration (SIR) by going to https://sir.cern.ch/. Some of the questions are quite amusing.

You will mostly use Swiss Francs (CHF), but Euros are often accepted and are needed for shopping in France (which is often cheaper than Switzerland). The best exchange rates will often be offered with student accounts at banks (e.g., RBS). Note that generally banks require a day or two of notice in order to acquire Swiss Francs. Alternatively, Marks & Spencer offer generally decent exchange rates.

  The bus stop you will need to get somewhere (i.e., CERN) is likely to be the one on the corner as you leave the airport. For vague instructions, after you pass from the baggage collection area to the foyer, turn left, following signs for buses, and eventually you will reach a yellow escalator. Go up this and, at the top, come back on yourself, exit that way and you will be essentially standing at the bus stop.

Airport to CERN: Take bus 57 (in the direction Gare Vernier-Meyrin) to Hôpital-La Tour and then take the tram (on Route de Meyrin) to CERN. The tram stops outside building 33, the reception building.

CERN Shuttle Service

The CERN Shuttle is a less frequent but direct service that operates on weekday mornings and afternoons. If you do not have a CERN access card, you are permitted to have transportation to the CERN reception building (building 33).

This machine is temperamental at the moment. It appears to have a certain distaste for drawing in paper (i.e., the rollers are probably dirty), though there is a trick for making it draw in paper (see the manual for how to do this). Also, it appears to have a damaged sensor that is used for calibration (i.e., the sensor that the printer uses to measure its length is not working) that prevents the printer from completing its bootup procedure. Do not try to trick the printer into working by feeding it whiskey.

Next, go to the ATLAS Secretariat on the top floor (south wing) of building 40 (the ATLAS/CMS building) and hand in your ATLAS registration form in order to get put onto the HR database. After the ATLAS registration, you can order a key for your office. For this, you simply fill out a requisition form. It takes around a day to have your new key made.

After the ATLAS registration, you can order a key for your office. For this, you simply fill out a requisition form. It takes around a day to have your new key made.
  Now, go to the ID Office in building 22 (which is near to gate B). Go up to the top floor first. Here you will receive details (user name and passcode) for internet access. You will also be instructed to do the Safety Information Registration (SIR). It is a set of online questions and it is not difficult. Now, go down to the ground floor. Here, you can get your photograph taken and your new CERN access card. If you want, there are toilets on the ground floor with mirrors, so you can make yourself look very attractive before your photograph is taken. Finally, go to your office, sit down and relax after all of that exercise.
Line: 113 to 114
  It takes about a day to be put onto the HR database and you should be on this in order to register any portable computers you want to use at CERN. When you gain access to the CERN network, you can do the Safety Information Registration (SIR) by going to https://sir.cern.ch/. Some of the questions are quite amusing.

CERN bicycles are provided free of charge. These are nice bikes that are services regularly and are a lovely way to get to CERN from Meyrin or Saint Genis-Pouilly. How do you get one? First, fill out this form as necessary. Bring the form to the ATLAS secretariat. There, you can get it signed and stamped. Now, bring the form to building 124. There is a deposit of CHF100 to pay (which is returned to you when you return the bike, assuming you have not blown it up or something). You could consider requesting a bike with a front carrier on it if you think it would be a good idea to carry a small bag (/animal/something else) in it. You should receive an e-mail in a day or so letting tyou know that your bike is ready for collection.

Free travel ticket

  When you are in the baggage collection area, remember to collect a free bus ticket! These are ideal for getting to wherever you need to go when you arrive and mean that you don't have to worry about having CHF change on arrival. The ticket machine could be quite easy to miss. It looks like this:

The Glasgow group has a flat close to CERN in the town of Meyrin. Here are the coordinates: (46.237145706538854, 6.077819913625717). The address is as follows:

Flat 62, Promenade des Champs-Fréchets 20, 1217 Meyrin, Switzerland

It is a nice flat with three bedrooms, Wi-Fi, a stereo system, a telephone, a washing machine/spin-drier, a shower and the other usual things you would expect in a flat. There is also a television, if you are into such retro things. There is a great view of the Jura mountains to wake up to each morning. You can view the availability and book the CERN flat here

This authorisation allows you to drive CERN vehicles.

Basically, the three things you will need to obtain CERN driving authorisation are the following:

  • CERN registration
  • Completion of Safety Levels 1 and 2
  • Scan of driving licence

First, go to EDH ( the CERN "Electronic Document Handling" system). Here you can create and activate a request for a driving authorisation (amongst other things). Log in to EDH using your CERN user name and passcode. After you have logged in, select "Access Request". Under "Required Access Line Item", select "+Add". In the pop-up select the following details (edit as necessary):

Access Site: All Access Building: All Access Zone: V: CERN vehicle driving license > select "CERN Driving Vehicle License"
Start Date: <today's date> End Date: Justification: "To drive CERN vehicle for ATLAS"

Select "OK". CSelect "I agree" for the terms and conditions. Attach a scanned copy of your driving licence (the UK Liaison Office can make a scan for you if you do not have access to a scanner) using the the "Attach" icon at the top. Select "Send" and follow the instructions as necessary.

Your driving license application will then pass to CERN Services. You will receive an EDH Notification e-mail within about a day regarding your request.

Be sure to fill out and get the following forms signed by your 'team leader' (i.e., Tony Doyle, Craig Buttar or Val O'Shea can sign the form): CERN Registration form, ATLAS registration form. These form registers you at CERN and ultimately grant you access to the internet while at CERN and a CERN access card.

glasvr01 (Glasgow server at CERN)

To use the server, you should have a user account set up on it. You can contact Samir Ferrag to arrange this. To connect to the server, you might use a procedure such as the following:

// Log on to LXPLUS.
   ssh -Y <user_name>@lxplus.cern.ch
// Log on to glasvr (Glasgow server at CERN) from LXPLUS.
   ssh -Y <user_name>@glasvr01.cern.ch

There is about 5 TB of space on the server. The AFS space for each user is ~ 1 GB. More space can be had by using the /data/ directory.

CERN bicycle

Bicycles are provided free of charge by PH/SMI. You give a deposit of CHF450 from your group which is eventually returned to your group (assuming you do not blow up the bike or something). http://ep-div-smi.web.cern.ch/ep-div-smi/Bikes_request.html. This is accessible from the PH/SMI page here. If there are problems organising your group to pay this, you can pay CHF100 yourself as a deposit, which is then returned to you.

You should complete CERN and ATLAS registration. Go to the Reception Desk in building 33. Identify yourself and your contact person (usually your supervisor). Receive a printed temporary pass card (which lasts for 2 days). Be sure to get yourself a nice little fold-up map of CERN. You could, perhaps, stick this in your lab. notebook. Now, go to the CERN Users office in building 500 and hand in your two signed registration forms. Next, go to the ATLAS Secretariat on the top floor (south wing) of building 40 (the ATLAS building) to get put onto the HR database. Now go to the ID Office in building 22 (which is near to gate B). Go up to the top floor first. Here you will receive details for internet access. Now, go to the ground floor. Here, you can get your photograph taken and your new CERN access card. If you want to, there are toilets on the ground floor with mirrors, so you can make yourself look very attractive before your photograph is taken. Next, go back to the ATLAS Secretariat in building 40 with your new CERN access card and fill out the requisition form for your office key. It can take a few days to get this key. Finally, go to your office, sit down and relax after all of that exercise.

The things you should arrange to do on arrival are as follows:

CERN registration ATLAS registration Safety Information Registration (SIR) Get CERN access card Register portable computer Get office key

On arrival, go to Reception in building 55. Identify yourself (using something such as a passport) and your contact person (usually your supervisor). It would be useful to make sure that this person is contactable by telephone when you arrive. Receive a printed temporary pass card (which lasts for 2 days) and get yourself a nice little fold-up map of CERN.

Now, go to the CERN Users office in building 500 and hand in your CERN registration form (making sure both sides are filled in). You should also hand in proof of health insurance. If you don't have it, you can send it to the person you register with at a later date.

Next, go to the ATLAS Secretariat on the top floor (south wing) of building 40 (the ATLAS/CMS building) and hand in your ATLAS registration form in order to get put onto the HR database. After the ATLAS registration, you can order a key for your office. For this, you simply fill out a requisition form. It takes around a day to have your new key made.

Now, go to the ID Office in building 22 (which is near to gate B). Go up to the top floor first. Here you will receive details (user name and passcode) for internet access. You will also be instructed to do the Safety Information Registration (SIR). It is a set of online questions and it is not difficult. Now, go down to the ground floor. Here, you can get your photograph taken and your new CERN access card. If you want, there are toilets on the ground floor with mirrors, so you can make yourself look very attractive before your photograph is taken. Finally, go to your office, sit down and relax after all of that exercise.

  In case of problems etc., you can go to the CERN UK Liason Office. Here, you can ask questions and send and receive faxes (for those signatures you might have forgotten to get...).

It takes about a day to be put onto the HR database and you should be on this in order to register any portable computers you want to use at CERN. When you gain access to the CERN network, you can do the Safety Information Registration (SIR) by going to https://sir.cern.ch/. Some of the questions are quite amusing.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to CERN

* THIS PAGE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION. *

This page is an informal guide that contains tips, tricks and observations for the avid physicist going on an adventure to CERN.

Important notes before going to CERN

CERN and ATLAS registration forms

Be sure to fill out and get the following forms signed by your 'team leader' (i.e., Tony Doyle, Craig Buttar or Val O'Shea can sign the form): CERN Registration form, ATLAS registration form. These form registers you at CERN and ultimately grant you access to the internet while at CERN and a CERN access card. Be sure to do this, as waiting to gain access to computers and the internet while at CERN can be frustrating.

Not so important notes before going to CERN

Money

You will mostly use Swiss Francs (CHF), but Euros are often accepted and are needed for shopping in France (which is often cheaper than Switzerland). The best exchange rates will often be offered with student accounts at banks (e.g., RBS). Note that generally banks require a day or two of notice in order to acquire Swiss Francs. Alternatively, Marks & Spencer offer generally decent exchange rates.

Language

English usually works, but having some French will help you. If you do not know a great deal of French, Google Translate is getting very good and you could have this at the ready on your mobile telephone.

Arriving at Geneva Airport

On arriving at Geneva airport, you will go through the usual procedures that you would expect at an airport including showing your passport and collecting checked baggage.

Free travel ticket

When you are in the baggage collection area, remember to collect a free bus ticket! These are ideal for getting to wherever you need to go when you arrive and mean that you don't have to worry about having CHF change on arrival. The ticket machine could be quite easy to miss. It looks like this:

* image *

The ticket lasts for 88 minutes.

Airport Wi-Fi

Swisscom offers access to Wi-Fi in the airport. There is also a small snack shop (which sells decent food) that offers Wi-Fi (SSID: *, passcode: *).

Leaving Geneva airport

Bus 57

The bus stop you will need to get anywhere (i.e., CERN) is likely to be the one on the corner as you leave the airport. For vague instructions, after you pass from the baggage collection area to the foyer, turn left, following signs for buses, and eventually you will reach a yellow escalator. Go up this and, at the top, come back on yourself, exit that way and you will be essentially standing at the bus stop.

Airport to CERN: Take bus 57 (in the direction Gare Vernier-Meyrin) to Hôpital-La Tour, then take the tram (on Route de Meyrin) to CERN. The tram stops outside building 55, the reception building.

CERN Shuttle Service

The CERN Shuttle is a less frequent but direct service that operates on weekday mornings and afternoons. If you do not have a CERN access card, you are permitted to have transportation to the CERN reception building (building 55).

Accommodation

The Glasgow group has a flat close to CERN in the town of Meyrin. Here are the coordinates: (46.237145706538854, 6.077819913625717). The address is as follows:

*

It is a nice flat with three bedrooms, Wi-Fi, a stereo system, a telephone, a washing machine/spin-drier, a shower and the other usual things you would expect in a flat. There is also a television, if you are into such retro things. There is a great view of the Jura mountains to wake up to each morning. You can view the availability and book the CERN flat here

* images of flat *

Arriving at CERN

You should complete CERN and ATLAS registration. Go to the Reception Desk in building 33. Identify yourself and your contact person (usually your supervisor). Receive a printed temporary pass card (which lasts for 2 days). Be sure to get yourself a nice little fold-up map of CERN. You could, perhaps, stick this in your lab. notebook. Now, go to the CERN Users office in building 500 and hand in your two signed registration forms. Next, go to the ATLAS Secretariat on the top floor (south wing) of building 40 (the ATLAS building) to get put onto the HR database. Now go to the ID Office in building 22 (which is near to gate B). Go up to the top floor first. Here you will receive details for internet access. Now, go to the ground floor. Here, you can get your photograph taken and your new CERN access card. If you want to, there are toilets on the ground floor with mirrors, so you can make yourself look very attractive before your photograph is taken. Next, go back to the ATLAS Secretariat in building 40 with your new CERN access card and fill out the requisition form for your office key. It can take a few days to get this key. Finally, go to your office, sit down and relax after all of that exercise.

In case of problems etc., you can go to the CERN UK Liason Office. Here, you can ask questions and send and receive faxes (for those signatures you might have forgotten to get...).

Living at CERN

Food

Restaurant 1

You can get decent food at Restaurant 1 in CERN. There are various areas to eat in; try them out. It is nice to sit outside with good weather, a view of Le Salève (a mountain) and the ATLAS building. Some food is available throughout the day, but there is more food available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While the food is good, the conversation is the main thing that you go for. High-quality physics talk is available in abundance.

Restaurant 1 is the only restaurant at CERN that is open at weekends and in the evenings for dinner.

Restaurant 2
