MAP 2014 Winter Meeting

chaired by Jean-Pierre Delahaye (SLAC), Daniel Kaplan (Illinois Institute of Technology)
from to (US/Pacific)
at SLAC ( Kavli Auditorium )
Building 51
Description

The meeting focuses on recent progress in muon accelerator R&D as well as on how efforts in this area will evolve given recent recommendations from the HEPAP P5 panel and Accelerator R&D panel. 

The workshop consists of plenary sessions covering developments in accelerator design and technology required to enable muon capabilities, the physics potential for precision neutrino sources and colliders based on these capabilities, and the concepts for a staged deployment of these capabilities.  The final day has a dedicated session where we will discuss the path forward for muon accelerator research.
