HEPAP Accelerator R&D Subpanel – Wednesday and Thursday in One West

On Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 27- 28, the HEPAP Accelerator R&D Subpanel will meet at Fermilab and Argonne National Laboratory. All interested parties are invited to attend the Fermilab sessions, which will take place in One West.

The Wednesday sessions take place from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. The subpanel will also host a town hall meeting on Thursday from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. View the schedule.

This accelerator R&D subpanel visit focuses on the Intensity Frontier. The subpanel held a similar meeting on Monday and Tuesday at Brookhaven National Accelerator Laboratory focusing on the Energy Frontier. They will visit SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory on Aug. 29-30.

The recent P5 report highlighted the importance of accelerator-based experiments for the future of particle physics. This places renewed emphasis on accelerator R&D efforts in support of medium- and long-term high-energy physics projects. The subpanel for accelerator R&D will examine the research in the current HEP accelerator R&D program to identify the most promising research areas to support the advancement of high-energy and particle physics.
