    In “FYI: An abbreviated look at the alphabet soup of HEP-speak”(FERMINEWS ,vol.25,no.15,Sept. 20,2002),the initials for Italy’s Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) were mistakenly omitted through an editing error. Scusa! Also,the correct original designation of CERN, when formed in 1951, was Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire. The laboratory’s official name is now Organisation européenne pour la recherche nucléaire, though it is still referred to as “CERN.” Pardon!
