Revision as of 00:25, 23 February 2017

Welcome to the wiki for the Cosmology with CMB-S4 workshop at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, February 27-March 1, 2017.

Please register here: Official Workshop Website: Program, Participants, Registration, Hotels, Logistics.


Workshop overview

The first two days of the workshop are dedicated to CMB-S4. There are rooms available for splinter meetings on the third day; please contact the local organizers ASAP if you need a room for a third day session.

About this wiki

As for the previous two workshops, we will use this wiki to organize the sessions and to capture the input from the sessions, and develop next steps. Initial page stubs will be provided for each break-out session. The wiki will be used during the break-out sessions, and also for the plenary session. Participants are encouraged to edit the wiki directly, including uploading plots or a few slides.
