Description
The SLAC Summer Institute is an annual event held at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in July-August. The Institute is a two-week-long Summer School. Lectures are given Monday through Friday each morning. The afternoons contain a mixture of topical talks, discussion sessions, and tours. In the evenings, there are social activities and student poster sessions. The attendance is typically a mixture from graduate students to senior researchers. We have much knowledge about the universe around us, yet many mysteries remain. These questions are best pursued with a variety of approaches that are often characterized as exploration along the cosmic, energy, and intensity frontiers. The institute this year will focus on the theoretical motivations and experimental techniques that will enable exciting discoveries along these frontiers in the next generation of physics experiments. The institue will closely follow the 2013 "Snowmass" Community Summer Study and will serve as a means for young physicists to participate. Mornings will consist of lectures. Work on "Snowmass" related projects will take place in the afternoons, alternating with topical conference talks, discussion sessions, tours, and social events.
