APPEAL-2 Teachers conference took place in the department on Saturday 2nd July 2011. The conference offered teachers the opportunity to update their knowledge of the physics underlying the LHC and the connection between accelerator science, particle physics and astronomy.

The conference aimed to answer questions such as "What is the origin of the Universe?", "How are LHC experiments connected to astronomy and dark matter?" and "What are the applications of particle accelerators in our daily lives?".
