Workshop overview

The Fermilab workshop continues a successful series of meetings bringing together the CMB experimental and theoretical community to plan a coordinated, stage-4 ground-based CMB experiment.

The meeting will be held at Fermilab, March 13-15, 2019. The first 2 days will be a collaboration meeting and the 3rd will be our first project meeting; everyone is welcome to all 3 days.
