The PIP-II Project, the first DOE particle accelerator project receiving substantial international in-kind contributions, held its first all-partner technical workshop from Dec. 1-4. The remote workshop included over 300 registered participants from seven countries spanning 11.5 time zones. The primary goal was to facilitate communication between the broader technical teams responsible for delivering hardware to PIP-II.

The Snowmass LOI process has provided an opportunity to engage the community and understand needs and opportunities. As a continuation of that process, we will have a one-day virtual workshop on Tuesday, Dec. 15, to discuss the concept of installing a constant field proton accumulator ring in the Booster tunnel and the HEP studies that could benefit. The workshop will be roughly segmented into Booster Accumulator Ring design consideration and implementation, while the afternoon will be dedicated to HEP use….

On November 9, Fermilab, University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory will host an online workshop focusing on strategic opportunities to collaborate on AI research: “Partnering to Advance AI Research & Development.” This event will serve as part one of the two-part “AI + Measurements” collaboration, which aims to forge new connections in research and development. A technical workshop will follow in spring 2021. Speakers will include Cheryl Ingstad, Director of the Artificial Intelligence & Technology Office (AITO) for DOE…

On Saturday, Nov. 2, and Sunday morning, Nov. 3, Fermilab will host “Precision Time-Structure in On-Axis Neutrino Beams”, a workshop on using the correlation of time-of-arrival with neutrino energy.  The workshop follows a Joint Experimental-Theoretical Physics Seminar (“Wine and Cheese”) with the same title at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1. Topics to be explored include: 1) Current estimates of future precision and systematic uncertainties in DUNE, DUNE/Prism, and DUNE/Prism + precision timing; 2) Beam dynamics and RF issues in re-bunching…

Workshop registration is open until Sept. 30. An electron-ion collider will be an unprecedented machine that will need to maintain high luminosity over a very wide range of center-of-mass energies while accommodating highly polarized beams and many different ion species. Addressing the challenges of this machine requires R&D in areas such as beam cooling, crab cavities and high-field magnets for the interaction points — areas in which Fermilab already has significant advancements.
