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.

MAP 2014 Winter Meeting

US/Pacific
Kavli Auditorium (SLAC)

Kavli Auditorium

SLAC

Building 51
Daniel Kaplan (Illinois Institute of Technology), Jean-Pierre Delahaye (SLAC)
Description

The meeting focuses on recent progress in muon accelerator R&D as well as on how efforts in this area will evolve given recent recommendations from the HEPAP P5 panel and Accelerator R&D panel. 

The workshop consists of plenary sessions covering developments in accelerator design and technology required to enable muon capabilities, the physics potential for precision neutrino sources and colliders based on these capabilities, and the concepts for a staged deployment of these capabilities.  The final day has a dedicated session where we will discuss the path forward for muon accelerator research.
