Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

Description

This workshop is the second in a series started in 2013.  It will provide a forum to discuss current activities in the US that are aimed at the construction of a large liquid argon time projection chamber detector.  The workshop will also feature talks from efforts outside of the US to provide a global context to LArTPC R&D. This workshop will produce a summary of the current R&D efforts and lessoned learned in the community over the past year as well as develop a list of challenges that need to be addressed by future efforts. The workshop is under the aegis of the DPF sponsored Coordinating Panel for Advanced Detectors (CPAD).
