MAP 2015 Spring Collaboration Meeting (MAP15)

from to (US/Central)
at Fermilab ( Curia II-WH2SW - Wilson Hall 2nd fl South West )
Batavia, Illinois 60510-5011
Description

The goal of this meeting is to summarize work carried out by the Muon Accelerator Program over the past three years to enable high energy physics capabilities based on muon accelerator technology. There will also be dedicated time to discuss  how efforts in this area will evolve within the General Accelerator R&D portfolio as recommended by the P5 panel.

The workshop will consist of plenary sessions which will review the recent advances in accelerator design and technology required to enable muon capabilities, the physics potential for precision muon and neutrino sources as well as muon colliders based on these capabilities, and the concepts for a staged deployment of these capabilities.  A particular focus will be the start of operation of the MICE Experiment at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK.
