DuRA Annual Meeting

Richard Gaitskell (Brown University), Steven R. Elliott (Los Alamos National Laboratory)

>>>Please note that the copies of the SLIDES are available under the TIMETABLE link on the left.

The annual meeting of the Deep Underground Research Association (DURA) is being held at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory on January 19-20, 2012. Although normally held during the fall, the meeting calendar became sufficiently crowded to warrant moving the meeting into January. 

The agenda includes talks from representatives of the major agencies/organiziations involved in the future of the South Dakota laboratory, overviews of underground research around the world, and developments in underground research in the U.S.
