Princeton-2018: Cosmology with CMB-S4

From CMB-S4 wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Workshop overview

The Princeton workshop continues a successful series of meetings bringing together the CMB experimental and theoretical community to plan a coordinated, stage-4 ground-based CMB experiment.

This meeting will focus on moving us towards the Decadal Survey and project formation. Each day will have a different flavor:

  • Thursday - Collaboration, Project and Decadal Survey Report updates and discussion
  • Friday - Broader community building ahead of the Decadal Process
  • Saturday - Parallel Science & Technical Council sessions

Meeting Info & Registration

Official Workshop Website: Registration, Participants, Hotels, Logistics.

The meeting will take place in McDonnell Hall, on the A-level. Registration begins at 8 am on Thursday, 6 Sept 2018.
McDonnell Hall can be accessed through the Jadwin Hall physics department building.
Parking is in lot 21 as shown in this campus parking map.

About This Wiki

As for previous workshops, we will use this wiki to organize the sessions, to capture the input from them, and to develop next steps. Participants are encouraged to edit the wiki directly, including uploading plots or a few slides.
