The Division of Particles and Fields of the American Physical Society announces the Frontier Conveners of the next HEP Community Planning Exercise (a.k.a. “Snowmass”) and the site and dates of the 2021 Snowmass Summer Study.
Dates and Site for the Summer Study: The dates for the summer study are July 11-20, 2021. This workshop will take place at the University of Washington, Seattle, and will be modeled after the successful Snowmass 2013 event.The local organizing committee will be co-chaired by Shih-Chieh Hsu and Gordon Watts.
The Snowmass Community Planning Process is organized by the Division of Particles and Fields of the APS. In order to coordinate efforts across divisions, a steering committee, consisting of the DPF executive committee withrepresentatives from DAP, DPB, DNP, and DGRAV, meets regularly. Snowmass is an opportunity for the entire HEP community to come together to identify and document a vision for the future of particle physics in the U.S. and with its international partners. Workshops will be organized over the next year and a half, culminating in a 2021 summer study that pulls all the work together. Snowmass provides input to HEPAP through its prioritization panel, P5, ultimately producing advice on future projects and scientific programs to the agencies under a set of funding scenarios.
Input to the Process: Your contributions and participation will naturally occur as part of one or more working groups directed by the conveners. There will be a Town Hall meeting during the APS April meeting (5:30 pm –7:00 pm on Saturday, April 18) for us to communicate with you and to receive your feedback: you can participate remotely by ZOOM. You are also welcome to provide input and suggestions on the Slack channel (https://snowmass2021.slack.com/) and the Snowmass wiki (https://snowmass-wiki.fnal.gov/wiki/Main_Page), which will have pages dedicated to each frontier. You will be able to use these platforms to comment throughout the entire process from subtopics to workshop planning schedules. If you are an early career scientist, we encourage you to join the “Snowmass Young” mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) by emailing to email@example.com with the body of the message “Subscribe snowmass-young YOUR NAME” and with no subject. We aim for everyone’s voice to be heard.
