Cosmology with CMB-S4 workshop at Argonne National Laboratory, March 5-7, 2018.

The series of open workshops to define the CMB-S4 project and collaboration continued this March with the successful Cosmology with CMB-S4 workshop at Argonne National Laboratory. Among the important achievements of this workshop was a finalized set of bylaws for the collaboration, to be ratified immediately after the workshop. This milestone will mark the beginning of the official CMB-S4 collaboration.

The other major goal of the workshop was to begin planning for a report to be submitted in preparation for the National Academies' Astronomy Decadal Survey in Astronomy & Astrophysics.Learn more >>
