Snowmass: NEW Timeline

Be the first person to recommend this.
Dear members of the Snowmass community, We are writing to inform you that, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Snowmass Report will be delayed by one year and the overall schedule for the Snowmass process will be adjusted accordingly. Over the past year, the U.S. particle physics community has skillfully navigated many challenges to keep projects moving forward and enable experiments to continue producing excellent results. We learned from DOE and NSF at the HEPAP meeting on December 3-4, 2020 that some important scientific milestones will arrive later than anticipated. For this reason, extending the timeline of the Snowmass and P5 process would enable ...

Dear Colleagues, "Transformative  discovery  in  science  is  driven  by  innovation  in  technology.   Our  boldest  undertakings  in particle  physics  have  at  their  foundation  precision  instrumentation.   To  reveal  the  profound  connections underlying everything we see from the smallest scales to the largest distances in the Universe, to understand its  fundamental  constituents,  and  to  reveal  what  is  still  unknown,  we  must  invent,  develop,  and  deploy advanced instrumentation." The above words are the opening paragraph of the   DOE Basic Research Needs for High Energy Physics Detector R&D Report  which has has just been released. ...
