The US particle physics community has gone through a long-range planning exercise for the next ten years. The Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) issued a report with recommendations to Department of Energy and National Science Foundation. I discuss how the report defines its scientific scope, what the major initiatives are in the next ten years, derived from a long-term vision for the field. The report also recommends creating a balanced portfolio in the program for all sizes and time scales, domestic vs international, and different subfields.

Hitoshi Murayama is a well-known theoretical particle physicist who works broadly, even on astrophysics, cosmology, and condensed matter physics. He has been a professor in the University of California, Berkeley, since 2000, and is also the founding director of the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) at the University of Tokyo, serving from 2007 to 2018. In October 2014, he was invited to give a speech at the United Nations headquarters in New York about how science unites people and brings peace. He received the Yukawa Commemoration Prize in Theoretical Physics and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Appointed as Chair of P5 (Particle Physics Project Priotization Panel) that decides important projects for the next 10 to 20 years.

Coffee and tea served at 16:00pm.
