Young scientists meet with deputy director on Friday to prepare for Snowmass

This Friday, early-career scientists will meet with Fermilab Deputy Director Young-Kee Kim in preparation for this summer’s Snowmass conference in Minnesota. All early-career scientists at Fermilab are welcome to attend.

The meeting is held by the Snowmass Young Physicists Movement, an effort by early-career physicists to contribute to the long-range plans of the field of particle physics, which are formally charted by the U.S. particle physics community at the Snowmass conference. YPM is a channel through which undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs and untenured scientists can help shape future particle physics experiments.

At Friday’s meeting, which begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Users’ Center Music Room, scientists will meet with Kim and Snowmass conveners to collect input for a survey intended to take the pulse of the up-and-coming generation of particle physicists.

The plan is to distribute the survey to scientists working at the various frontiers of particle physics. Results will be presented at the Snowmass meeting.

If you’d like to attend Friday’s meeting, please notify Bjoern Penning at
