The 52nd Rencontres de Moriond conference was held in La Thuile, Italy, from the 18 March to 1 April. The first week, which ran until 25 March, was devoted to the theme "Electroweak interactions and unified theories", while the second week was based on the theme of “QCD and high energy interaction”.

Moriond brings together experimentalists and theorists from across the high-energy physics community to discuss new findings. Here is a collection of images from this year’s event, highlighting the now-famous “spirit of Moriond”. (Images by C. Adam-Bourdarios/ATLAS Collaboration)
