Join the Snowmass Frontier on Rare Processes and Precision Measurements! May 31, 2020

Posted by apetrov in Particle Physics, Physics, Science.

As you might know, I was appointed as one of the leaders (aka conveners) of the 2021 Snowmass Frontier for Rare Processes and Precision Measurements. Snowmass is a code word for a community exercise to plan the future of the US High Energy Physics. Well, at least the near future: for the next 10 years. We’ll try to see what experiments, accelerators, or theoretical ideas are worth pursuing in the next decade.

But we can not do it without the physics community. So, please, join us! Please see the message below.


We’d like to invite the physics community to participate in the activities of 2021 Snowmass Frontier for Rare Processes and Precision Measurements (FRPPM).  We would also like to extend our welcome to the international Particle Physics community to take part in the development of the roadmap for the future of the US efforts in the studies of rare processes and precision measurements at the currently running and future experimental facilities as well as development of relevant theoretical tools. 

FRPPM activities are linked on the wiki page (https://snowmass21.org/rare/start).  The organization of the Frontier for Rare Processes and Precision Measurements consists of six Topical Groups, each of which is led by two conveners: 

We would like to invite submissions of Letters of Interest (LOIs) relevant to the future experimental and theoretical activities of the Frontier for Rare Processes and Precision Measurements.

Each FRPPM Topical Group is organizing its own schedule and full information will soon be available on their wiki pages. Please subscribe to their mailing lists and SLACK channels to keep up to date with news, meeting arrangements, and physics discussions. The subscription information is available on our wiki page and also given below.

The first general kick-off Zoom Meeting of the Frontier for Rare Processes and Precision Measurements will take place in July, we will announce the exact dates shortly. Please remember that all Frontiers will come together for the first general Snowmass 2021 community meeting to be held on Nov. 4-6 at Fermilab. We are also planning an (in-person) FRPPM Meeting in March 2021.  If you are interested in hosting this meeting, please contact us with information on venue capacity, funding, organizing team, and other available resources.  

We are looking forward to working with you!
