Dear CPM Participants

      We are looking forward to the start of the Snowmass Community Planning Meeting (CPM) on October 5th. We want to communicate some details about the planned sessions.

Snowmass 2021 is an in-depth process to define the most important questions for our field and to identify promising opportunities to address these questions in a global context. The primary goal of the CPM is to develop plans and steps to take between now and the Snowmass Community Summer Study in July 2021, leading to a final report in October 2021.

You can find a high-level summary of the CPM program here. We will use a Zoom webinar to host plenary sessions all day on Monday Oct 5th and Thursday Oct 8th, as well as the morning of Wednesday Oct 7th. The webinar link and password will be distributed to all registered CPM attendees in the days leading up to the meeting.  

Parallel discussion meetings will take place on Tuesday Oct 6th and Wednesday Oct 7th. These meetings will allow organizers to plan the work that needs to occur between now and next July’s Community Summer Study on a variety of topics. These sessions will:

  • Focus on inter-frontier discussions and establish cross-working-group connections

  • Provide space for members across the field to talk to each other and to discuss, promote, and develop new ideas

  • Identify gaps and further input needed to achieve Snowmass goals

Please note that you must be registered for the Snowmass2021 Slack in order to participate in Q&A follow-up discussions or to post questions to plenary speakers in Slack. Instructions for registering for Slack can be found on the welcome page of the website. Snowmass is an APS process and all participants of the CPM must agree to follow the APS Code of Conduct in all meeting interactions, including over Zoom and Slack. 

We wish we could have been welcoming you to Fermilab in person next week, but hope that the virtual meeting still allows for productive discussion as we all come together in planning the next decade of particle physics. 

We look forward to meeting with you next week.
