LPC Guests and Visitors (G&V) Program

HCAL HATS photo 2017

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 employed by a CMS institution during their stay at the LPC. Given that the G&V is funded by the Operations program, proposals must include an operations and/or upgrade component for CMS. A Physics component is encouraged but not required.

Current (Fall 2023) and previous LPC Guests and Visitors are listed here.

General Guidelines and Policies for the LPC Guests and Visitors Program are here.

As a reference, a preview of the application in PDF format, with the full list of questions in the online form can be found here, feel free to review it and prepare your answers in advance so you have them ready before starting your application.

Proposals for short stays at the LPC starting no earlier than May 2024, are due by Sunday, March 24, 2024, and they have to be submitted online using the application form.

Advisors are expected to submit the application on behalf of their students. Recommendation support letters (PDF) and evaluation form (Excel) for students and postdoc applicants should be submitted via online recommendation submission form.

Note that being able to obtain Fermilab site access is required, contact LPC computing support for any questions about that.

A review of the proposals by the LPC G&V committee chair and the LPC Coordinators will be conducted on rolling basis with results communicated to the proponents expeditiously.
