The Lyon group joined CMS in the early stage of the Collaboration, taking responsibilities in the construction of essential parts of the detectors like the Electromagnetic Calorimeter and the Tracker. The group has been involved in the maintenance and running of these detectors ever since, and is now also contributing in the muon project, along with the tracking system, for the planned upgrades of the detector.
The IPNL group has played an important role in data acquisition and simulation, with relevant contributions to the High-Level Trigger system and Monte Carlo simulations. On the data analysis side, the contributions have been numerous and involve the most important research aspects at the LHC: Higgs studies, searches for new physics and precision measurement with the top quark.
