Got a story for the CERN website?

We would like to hear from you. Let us know:

  • what the story is about
  • who your story might interest
  • the 'hook' for the story (e.g. an event, a discovery)

Contact the web team via Service Portal

Events

Information about events such as meetings, seminars and lectures should be managed in Indico. Certain categories of events are automatically imported into the CERN website - work with colleagues in the Indico team to improve the way these lists are managed is ongoing. Feel free to also request an announcement on the CERN website (see below).

Announcements

Anyone with a CERN primary account can submit and save an announcement for the CERN website. Announcements must be clearly targeted at CERN people. Keep titles short. 200-word maximum: longer announcements will be cut. Send your announcement via Service Portal. The web editor will check that your announcement fits the required format, edit it and publish at his or her discretion.

Articles

The editorial team meets every morning. Stories and articles for the week are agreed on Mondays. We may ask you to pitch your story at the Monday editorial meeting if we need more information.

Club updates

If you are the president of a CERN club or you subscribed to the e-group club-web-editors, you can send an update related to the club filling up with this form. The update will be displayed on the CERN People page.

A word on audiences and formats

Every story on the CERN website is written for a particular audience and to a particular format. You can find more information on the writing guidelines website.

We look forward to receiving your stories!
