Snowmass

A series of Snowmass Agora events on Future Colliders, intended for all Snowmass participants, are being held about once a month, through April 2022. Thanks to all those who registered and attended the previous Agora events!   The fifth and final Agora on Advanced Colliders, will be held Wednesday, April 13, 2022, from 3:00 – 5:00 pm CST.   An informal post-Agora chat is anticipated for an additional 30-40 minutes. Please register for the event, as soon as possible, at https://indico.fnal.gov/event/53848 or https://indico.fnal.gov/e/snowmass-agora/. You…

The Snowmass Particle Physics Education survey group has prepared a survey aimed at gauging missing elements of graduate and undergraduate education in particle physics and how to bridge those gaps, both within and outside the classroom. This includes development of technical and professional skills, awareness of training opportunities, career trajectories, and more. The survey link is here: https://berkeley.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bd5m3k4EIcooO0e To ensure your response is included in our study, please fill out the survey by March 4. This survey is expected to…

As previously announced, a series of events, Snowmass Agora on Future Colliders, intended for all Snowmass participants, will be held December 2021 through April 2022, about once a month. The first Agora will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2021, 3-5 p.m. U.S. CST, and will focus on Linear e+e– Colliders. Please register for the event, as soon as possible, at https://indico.fnal.gov/event/52161/. The short talks in the Agora will be presented in colloquium style, as they are intended for all…

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.
