Organization and format
These talks will emphasize the experimental nature of high-energy physics (HEP) and particle astrophysics. They are intended for HEP experimental, HEP phenomenology, and particle astrophysics students, postdocs, and faculty, but open to all. These talks are very interactive, and we strongly encourage participation and questions. Sessions are held during lunchtime. You are welcome to bring your own lunch.
