Description

This workshop will be held in-person at Brookhaven National Laboratory as well as virtual for those who can not travel. 

Members of the community are encouraged to prepare a 15-minute presentation to identify important science thrusts for consideration as well as feedback on the proposed ATF Upgrade plans. Upon submission, please clearly identify which working group your presentation belongs to (High-power LWIR laser, Electron beam driver, Combined contribution of multiple beams).

Registration includes only coffee breaks. Lunch is on your own. 

To be added to the presentation schedule, please submit a presentation request.

Event ID: E000006058

Note: This event falls under Exemption E. Meetings such as Advisory Committee and Federal Advisory Committee meetings.
