CMB-S4 comprises a scientific collaboration and a joint DOE/NSF construction project and operations program.
The construction project is responsible for building, deploying, and commissioning the experiment to the specifications set by the collaboration, ready for the operations program to deliver science-grade single-frequency maps and prompt transient alerts to the collaboration for analysis. The project office can be contacted here.
The scientific collaboration is responsible for setting the overall scientific goals, validating and verifying the experimental design, and performing the numerous scientific analyses of the maps and transient alerts the experiment produces. The collaboration spokespeople can be contacted here.
If you would like a speaker from CMB-S4 for a conference, colloquium, or other event please contact the Speakers Bureau at [email protected].
Technical working groups, coordinated by the corresponding subsystem L2 lead, are joint project/collaboration activities for designing, developing, and deploying their subsystem deliverables.
Analysis working groups, coordinated by conveners appointed by the collaboration spokespeople, are collaboration activities for developing the analysis pipelines to derive the science results and deploying them to ensure that the experiment design meets the scientific requirements.

CMB-S4 currently spans 19 countries and 26 US states.
