New York, NY – CLC Advisors is delighted to announce that CEO Cindy Chin will be joining TEDxCERN 2014 in Meyrin, Switzerland as part of the social media and communications team. The event will take place on Wednesday, September 24th at CERN featuring experts and speakers on the theme “Forward: Charting the future with science”. Approximately 15 speakers will present their innovative and ambitious projects, which apply science to respond to problems facing the world today and prepare for those of tomorrow.
The short but inspiring talks will be grouped into three themed sessions – “adapt”, “change” and “create” – according to the stance that they take on confronting global challenges such as the efficient management of natural resources or extending access to healthcare to non-urban areas. Each session will include a performance that combines art and science from artists such as musician Nitin Sawhney and dancer Andrew Nemr. Particle physicist and BBC presenter Brian Cox will host the conference.
“Science is both the exploration of worlds beyond the imagination and a part of everyday life – a vital ingredient in confronting the challenges we face today and in the future,” said Brian Cox. “TEDxCERN will showcase ideas at the frontiers of science from remarkable people.”
This year, a number of remarkable people, all experts in their respective fields – leading geneticist and molecular biologist Nina Fedoroff, entrepreneur and scientist Danielle Fong, nanomaterials researcher Julia Greer, mathematician and philosopher John Mighton and biotechnologist Hayat Sindi, to name just a few – will take the floor. Young talents will be brought to the fore – those for whom the central theme of TEDxCERN 2014, the world of tomorrow, is particularly relevant.
Places have been set aside for members of the general public wishing to attend the event at CERN. Those interested in attending can apply for tickets through the TEDxCERN website. Places are limited and will be allocated on a random basis. TEDxCERN can also be followed online.
Places have also been reserved for journalists in possession of a press card – please contact the CERN Press Office to request a place. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
The two annual TED conferences, in Long Beach/Palm Springs and Edinburgh, Scotland, bring together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less).
On TED.com, we make the best talks and performances from TED and partners available to the world, for free. More than 900 TEDTalks are now available, with more added each week.
Our mission: Spreading ideas.
