Description
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.
The private docdb page for talks can be found here: http://des-docdb.fnal.gov:8080/cgi-bin/DisplayMeeting?conferenceid=1405
A reminder about the DES Statement on Collaboration Culture, Ethics, Inclusivity, and Diversity: http://des-docdb.fnal.gov:8080/cgi-bin/ShowDocument?docid=8803
This meeting will be held at the new *IARC building* at Fermilab (see map below) on March 6th, 2017. Directions to IARC can be found here (click for the link) and parking can be found across the street.
When entering the Fermilab site, be prepared to show a driver's licence/government issued ID.




The ongoing Dark Energy Survey is designed to probe the origin of the accelerating universe and help uncover the nature of dark energy by measuring the 14-billion-year history of cosmic expansion with high precision. Learn more about the survey at http://www.darkenergysurvey.org/
