international relations

From Jan. 12 through Jan. 14, representatives from the particle physics communities in the United States and the United Kingdom gathered at Fermilab to attend the “Proton Accelerators for Science and Innovation Workshop.” The goal of the workshop was to provide a solid foundation of cooperation and collaboration concerning the multiple possibilities of R&D, as well as applications, of accelerator technologies.

The visit included a tour of the 15th floor, CDF, the SRF Accelerator Test Facility and the Dark Energy Camera. CDF co-spokesperson Rob Roser (second from left) explained how the detector works to (from left), Byung-Hoon Oh, director and senior researcher at the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute, Dong-Pil Min, Chairman of the Korea Research Council of Fundamental Science and Technology, and Whanyung Kim, a reporter from Joong Ang Ilbo.
