Snowmass

The deadline to complete the Snowmass community survey has been extended to Monday, August 23. The survey is a 2021 initiative to seek input from junior and senior current and former users and collaborators of US-funded experiments and facilities of the High-Energy Physics and Astrophysics, or HEPA, community. The responses to this survey will better inform the HEPA field about the community’s opinions, outlooks, wishes, professional history and personal identity. The survey covers many topics, including careers, physics outlook, harassment…

From Science, Oct. 2, 2020: As U.S. particle physicists start to drum up new ideas for the next decade in a yearlong Snowmass process they have no single big project to push for (or against). Physicists have just started to build the current plan’s centerpiece: The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility at Fermilab will shoot particles through 1,300 kilometers of rock to the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment in South Dakota. Fermilab Deputy Director of Research Joe Lykken and Fermilab scientist Vladimir Shiltsev comment on other possible pursuits in high-energy physics.
