BREAKING NEWS ABOUT DNP 2012 (NEWPORT BEACH)

Friday Town Meeting with NSAC Tribble Subcommittee Preceded by Thursday Mini-Town Meetings


As part of the DNP fall meeting (24-27 Oct., Newport Beach), there will be an extended Town meeting on Friday evening with discussion of the activities of the NSAC subcommittee chaired by Bob Tribble. In addition, there will be an opportunity for mini-Town meetings for members of nuclear physics subfields to solicit public input, hold discussions, and prepare for the Friday meeting. The mini-Town Meetings will be held Thursday evening, 25 Oct., during the time period 6-10PM. The contact persons for the 4 town meetings, corresponding to the 4 major research areas of nuclear physics. are:

        Nuclear structure/astrophysics - Brad Sherrill
        Hadronic physics - Sebastian Kuhn
        RHIC physics - Paul Sorensen and Xin-Nian Wang
        Fund. Symmetries and Neutrinos - Alan Poon, David Hertzog, and Takeyasu Ito

The preliminary website for the mini-Town Meeting on Hadronic Physics can be found at https://www.jlab.org/indico/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=21 . We will be sending additional information on these mini-Town meetings in the near future as the groups get organized.



Preparing for the Hadronic Physics Town Meeting at DNP2012

As indicated above, there will be a 4 hour long "mini town meeting" on "Hadronic Physics" for input to the NSAC subcommittee considering the implementation of the present Nuclear Physics Long Range Plan. The meeting website will be at https://www.jlab.org/indico/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=21. The first hour will be in the style of our usual "Users Group Satellite Meeting" which we hold at every APS Spring and DNP Fall meeting. The remaining 3 hours will involve the broader hadronic community.

It is obvious that a strong showing of support and input from the Hadronic Physics community (and in particular the Jefferson Lab community) will be tremendously important. In this context, the 12 GeV White Paper is perhaps of interest: http://arxiv.org/abs/1208.1244. For more information, see also our page on NSAC subcommittee feedback.


UGBoD welcomes your comments and suggestions for the structure, content and output of the town meeting.:We strongly urge all users to attend both the Hadronic Towm Meeting and the general NSAC subcommittee Town meeting the next day.
