Director for Research and Computing, CERN, European Organization for Nuclear Research
Sergio Bertolucci is an Italian physicist with a Degree in Physics summa cum laude from the University of Pisa who has been working in the field of experimental Particle Physics at DESY in Hamburg, at Fermi National Laboratory in Chicago and at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati (LNF) of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN). He was Director of LNF from 2002 to 2004, Chair of the LHC Committee (LHCC) of CERN from 2004 to 2007, Vice President of INFN from 2005 to 2008, and since 2009 is Director of Research and Scientific Computing at CERN. 1n 2012 he was appointed Grande Ufficiale Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana.
The career of S. Bertolucci includes key roles in the design, construction and physics exploitation of the CDF and KLOE experiments. Among the most outstanding scientific achievements obtained by these experiments is the discovery of the top quark, the most precise determination of the quark mixing angle Vus and the measurement of the hadronic contribution to the muon anomalous magnetic moment. Particular individual achievements include development of innovative instrumentation, which still holds cutting edge performances, and leading the commissioning of the DAFNE accelerator allowing it to reach record performances. He has co-authored over 370 papers on refereed journals, with a global h-index of 86.
S. Bertolucci was Italian Delegate to the Program Committee for the Research Infrastructures of the EU FP6 programme and serves on several international panels: DESY PRC, ESFRI, ILCSC, CERN Council Strategy Group, SLAC, JPARC, FAIR, ETH and KEK. He is member of the CERN Research Board, the Scientific Policy Committee and the Restricted Panel of the European Committee for Future Accelerators (RECFA).
