Beyond impact factor, h-Index and university rankings: Evaluate science in more meaningful ways

The conference aims to:
• Highlight the limitations of metrics in capturing scientific quality and the resulting pressure on the quality of scientific output;
• Present assessment approaches - San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment DORA, Leiden Manifesto for Research Metrics - that challenge conventional metrics;
• Consider whether steps are necessary to maintain the high quality of the Swiss science landscape long-term.

Summer School Particle Physics at the Crossroads: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the Past, Present and Future of Particle Physics

Aims & Scope
With the discovery of the Higgs boson, the last missing piece of the Standard Model of particle physics has been found. The “hunt” for the Standard Model particles has thus come to an end and new aims and challenges will take centre stage in the practice of particle physics: precision measurements of the Standard Model’s parameters, the search for particles beyond the Standard Model, motivated in part by cosmological evidence, and the exploration of yet uncharted experimental and theoretical territory. To meet these challenges ever more sophisticated and larger experimental facilities will be required as well as an ever more critical assessment of the virtues and shortcomings of various theoretical proposals. A better understanding of this new phase of particle physics calls for a concerted effort of physics and the social sciences reflecting on it.
