Pictures from the inauguration of the High-throughput electronics lab on November 14th

Erna Van Wyk, from the Wits Communication Team, has passed us some of the pictures that she took during the inauguration of the High-throughput electronics lab on November 14th. The lab was inaugurated by Prof. Adam Habib, Wits Vice Chancellor and Principal, who gave a smashing speech. Erna is making the audio available. Prof. John Carter, the Head of the School of Physics chaired the function. Prof. Helder Marques, the Dean of the Faculty of Sciences, also gave a great talk. Prof. Peter Jenni, former spokesperson of ATLAS and Dr. Irene Vichou, the Project Leader of the Tile Calorimeter of ATLAS attended the meeting remotely from Geneva. We were very pleased with their statements of support. The event took place at the Honours presentation room that is equipped with very a very nice conference facility.

Below some of the pictures:
