Participations to HEP experiments
             (Past …)
• ALEPH (1993- End) :: W mass, SM
  physics ::
       –As Saclay-Group members
• L3 (1996 –End) :: SUSY and BSM
  physics ::
       –As Lyon-Group members
• ATLAS (1996-1999) :: Tracking
  software ::
       – As Annecy-Group members

 Participations to HEP experiments
              (…Present …)
• OPERA (2003- now)
• As a Tunisian-Group
• 4 Physicists + 2PhD Students
        –Low energy muon/pion identification
        –Very good results … but ..
• Problems
        –Those of OPERA (of course !!)
        –The lack of an official framework to
         receive financial support form the
         Government
Participations to HEP experiments
             (…Future)
• LHC/CMS (2008- ???)
  –Contact already established
  –Level of participation : Analysis,
   and may be hardware.
  –A Grid is planed

• Needs a cooperation agreement
  between TUNISIA and CERN
