This conference is also hosting a special DOE  component featuring plenary presentations on funding opportunities and the longer term physics direction. Afternoon sessions dedicated to specific  "Frontier" programs are scheduled and opportunties for PIs to meet with their program managers are anticipated. 

Michigan League All of the plenary and parallel sessions will be convened in the Michigan League, in the heart of the University of Michigan Central Campus. Welcome reception, breakfasts and coffee breaks are provided in the Michigan League Ballroom in order to foster extended discussions during the week.

Accommodations are provided in either university dormitory and hotels right on campus, or in off-campus hotels connected by shuttles or public transportation. Limited financial aid covering the cost of accommodations for students and post-doc is available on a first-come first-serve basis.

Note: To submit/view an abstract you will need to logon to the CERN Indico server. This may be done through:
1) A CERN user account
2) A public service account such as Gmail, Facebook, Live, etc.
3) A CERN Lightweight account. This mayeasily be obtained via the instructions in the link.

This service allows external users who do not have a regular CERN account to get access to certain CERN applications that are open to external users. The CERN Lightweight Account consists in your existing email address and a password.
