LPC Guests and Visitors (G&V) Program

HCAL HATS photo 2017

The LPC G&V Program was launched in 2010, and since then has resulted in highly productive and successful visits to the LPC by the guests and visitors from the CMS community worldwide. The main aim of the 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. 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 (Winter 2020) and previous LPC Guests and Visitors are listed here.
