Join the Office of Professional Development and Learning for Communicate as a Woman and Succeed workshop on Thursday, March 25 between 1 and 4:30 p.m. Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) is the current environment we face where women are uniquely positioned to establish new best practices. It is always during times of change that the opportunities for creative alternatives present themselves. For too long, women have had to adjust to work cultures and business processes in their field in…

28th International Workshop on Weak Interactions and Neutrinos First Announcement The goal of the 28th International Workshop on Weak Interactions and Neutrinos (WIN 2021) is to offer to the community a significant opportunity to assess the status of the field and to initiate collaborative efforts to address current physics questions. Following up on previous successful workshops, most recently in Heidelberg (2015), Irvine (2017) and Bari (2019), WIN 2021 will be held Monday June 7, 2021 to Saturday June 12, 2021….

From March 25-27, the Fermilab professional chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers will host the virtual Regional Leadership Development Conference. This is a great professional development and networking opportunity for Fermilab employees and users. The conference agenda includes career, leadership and professional-development workshops. Early bird registration is open until Feb. 23.

Inclusion Matters 2021 builds upon IM20 presentations and workshops focused on the theme Building a Sense of Community. Along with expressions of appreciation for the lab community’s contributions to workplace inclusion, the IM calendar includes presentations and workshops on cross-cultural communication, LGBT Safe Zones, and how to be an upstander

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.
