Founded in 1959, LIYSF aims to give a deeper insight into science and its applications for the benefit of all mankind and to develop a greater understanding between young people of all nations.

LIYSF is a two week residential event held at Imperial College London, with lectures and demonstrations from leading scientists, visits to industrial sites, research centres, scientific institutions and organisations, including world class laboratories and universities.

LIYSF attracts over 300 of the world's leading young scientists aged 17-21 years old from more than 50 participating countries. There is an active social calendar with events designed to enable those from around the world to learn about different cultures.

LIYSF 2011 will explore the future developments in the sciences, with lecture demonstrations, specialist seminars and debates led by a team of scientists and experts and scientific visits.

Participants join in a programme of:
- Lectures and demonstrations from leading scientists
- Seminars, debates and discussions on scientific topics of world concern
- Visits to industrial sites and research facilities
- Visits to academic research centres in London, Oxford and Cambridge
- Visits to the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum
- Social activities, including discos, inter-hall competitions, a light-hearted international cabaret and an evening of Songs of Home.

CERN Discovery Programme - 7 Days
10th - 16th August 2011

Why not extend your stay with your new found friends and budding scientists on a unique discovery programme to take a look behind the scenes of the world's largest particle physics laboratory – CERN?

This year the London International Youth Science Forum is offering students a chance to discover the excitement of fundamental research at CERN, one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research, with over 2500 scientists researching fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works.

Influence future direction and represent your country with open international scientific co-operation, which has been the foundation of the laboratory's success over the last 50 years. These international collaborations at CERN have already led to the birth of the world wide web and the latest experiments to understand where the Universe comes from with the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
