(Updated March 19, 3pm Pacific)

P5 (Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel) reports to HEPAP (High-Energy Physics Advisory Panel) that advises High-Energy Physics of DOE Office of Science and Division of Physics of NSF. We will build on the “Snowmass” community study to hash out priorities for the next 10 years within 20-year context.

This is a tentative bare-bones web site for information and annnouncements. More professional web site is in the works.

There is some misinformation out there about P5. We are now just entering the information gathering mode and no discussions or decisions took place. Please be careful!


The charge to P5 was issued by Dr. Asmeret Asefaw Berhe, Director of Office of Science, Department of Energy, and Dr. Sean L. Jones, Assistant Director, Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences, National Science Foundation, to the HEPAP chair JoAnne Hewett on November 2, 2022

Town Halls

We will have four town hall meetings with people in the community to give short presentations on issues, visions, science, projects of interest to the field, including an open-mic session. If people want to speak privately with the panel, we will try to accommodate the request as much as we can, especially for early career scientists. They are not tied to any specific Snowmass frontiers.

In addition, we will have a set of invited talks at the meetings cenetered around some of the Snowmass frontiers, on the visions of the communities and specific set of projects. This is an important part of the information gathering mode for the panel.

We plan for additional virtual town halls to receive more input from the community. Details are still subject to change. I'm sorry that registration pages are slow to open. There are forces beyond our control.

Virtual Town Halls

We make some of them specific to early career scientists in closed settings. Details TBD.

Closed Meetings

There are meetings closed to the panel only.
