The Dark Energy Survey (DES) Chicagoland meetings are an opportunity for DES collaborators from Fermilab, KICP, UChicago, UIUC, NCSA, Argonne, and the greater Chicagoland area to meet and collaborate. This meeting is the 6th in a continuing series that rotates through the participating institutions every three to four months. The Chicagoland meetings aim to foster collaboration between the various institutions, encourage new projects, and to bring new members up to speed on DES activities.
