P5 Town Hall with a focus on
Accelerator, Community Engagement, Theory, and Underground Science
P5 (Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel) makes recommendations on the next 10 years of the US particle physics program within the 20 year context to HEPAP, which advises DOE and NSF. It builds on the extensive community involvement in the Snowmass study. This meeting is part of a series of town halls for information gathering for the panel to learn the aspiration of the community and basic ideas on costs and schedule of proposed projects.
Town Halls have a set of invited talks on overview of scientific opportunities as well as concrete projects, including their costs and schedules. They also have sessions for the community members to make short (~5min) remarks about their vision for the field, exciting science, projects, and issues of the community. People are encouraged to propose remarks, especially early career scientists. There will be also a time for "open-mic" session for discussions.
The Town Hall will be a hybrid event. Both in-person and remote participants must register. In-person participants will need to submit information for site access. In-person participation is encouraged and all presentations will be in the Kavli auditorium. (Unfortunately, the Panofsky auditorium suffered water damage during the recent storms and is closed for repairs.) The Kavli auditorium is in Building 51, Room 102. It is in the first building you see on your right when you come to the lab from the Main Gate. See the map for its location. Seating in the Kavli auditorium will be available on a first-come, first-served basis up to the capacity of 150. Additional room will be available for all participants in nearby overflow rooms. Zoom information will be provided only for registered participants.
The Town Hall presentations will be on Wednesday and Thursday, May 3 and 4, while Tuesday and Friday are reserved for the P5 committee.
