2017 Update

  • On 30 May 2017 representatives of the User Group Board (Larry Weinstein, Krishna Kumar, Nadia Fomin and Charles Hyde) met with the Office of Nuclear Physics (Tim Hallman, Gulshan Rai, James Sowinski, Paul Sorensen, Jehanne Gillo, and Manouchehr Farkhondeh) to show the user enthusiasm for Jefferson Lab to make the case for enough funding to run JLab efficiently and to carry out the 12 GeV program. See the attached slides
  • We just (5/22/17) completed a "Nuclear Physics Day" at the U.S. Capitol - over 100 users from three national labs (BNL, FRIB and JLab) and the fundamental symmetries group met with senators, representatives and their staff to explain the importance of nuclear science for the nation. Nadia Fomin organized the JLab contingent of about 25 scientists.
