The main aim of the Guests and Visitors (G&V) program is to facilitate CMS collaborators to spend time at the LPC and collaborate with other LPC residents/applicants on projects that advance, enrich, and impact the interests of the CMS experiment.
The G&V program is open to all CMS members both from U.S. and non-U.S. institutions. This includes students, postdocs, scientists and faculty.
Applicants must be associated with a CMS institution during their stay at the LPC.
The G&V program is flexible in that it allows applications for stay periods anywhere from several weeks up to several months, but no more than one year. During this period, successful applicants are required to be based at Fermilab, at the LPC, where a suitable working space will be provided.
Applicants from US institutions:
Applicants from non-US institutions:
The application must include the following information:
The application should be submitted online using the form here .
A one-page report summarizing the work done by the applicant should be submitted at the end of the stay. A presentation of this work at the LPC may be requested.
Previous participants of the LPC G&V program can submit applications for a new term.
Participants awarded during the last two years will be asked to describe the outcomes from their recent participation in the LPC G&V program in their application (max. 200 words).
In addition, a letter is required from one of the contacts from their previous visit about the work done by the applicant during their previous visit. The same person may write a support for the current application in the same letter when appropriate.
In case of questions please contact the LPC coordinators.

The G&V program supports visitors from both US and international institutions.
International visitors who need a visa should consider applying for a longer term - unto 1 year duration and plan a start date which allows for getting the paperwork completed prior to arrival e. g. invitation from Fermilab and visa process.
We encourage cost sharing by the home institutions.
