Users Meeting 2016

Users Meeting 2016

The Fermilab Users Executive Committee (UEC) would like to remind you of the upcoming Fermilab User Meeting:

The deadline for poster abstracts is on April 15. As an incentive, the poster session is judged and the top three posters get a recognition award with a monetary prize. There is only limited space for posters available. We will select the poster presenters, based on their abstract submissions.

The Fermilab Users Executive Committee (UEC) is pleased to announce that the Universities Research Association (URA) is sponsoring travel grants for eligible young scientists to attend the 2016 New Perspectives (June 13-14) and Users Meeting (June 15-16) conferences. Awards will be granted to students and postdocs affiliated with URA institutions and can support travel to/from and room/board at Fermilab during the Users Meeting, as well as additional time at the lab for participants to work on Fermilab sponsored projects.

Please apply here:

Awards are intended for graduate students and postdocs. Preference will be given to participants presenting a talk at New Perspectives or a poster at the Users Meeting. All applications completed by Sunday, April 30, will receive full consideration.

Please feel free to contact Thomas Strauss ( with any questions or concerns.

We hope to see you all soon,

Bill Louis – Chair, Fermilab User Executive Committee
