With data from future CMB satellite missions of order a decade or more away, the European CMB community needs to develop its suborbital technology in order to exploit and extend the expertise it has acquired in the last decade.
The meeting “Towards the Coordination of the European CMB programme”, September 6-7, 2017 in Florence, Italy, will gather experiment builders, observers and agency representatives in a continuing effort to set the conditions and chart the necessary steps towards European coordination on the ground-based and sub-orbital CMB experiments, review and prepare future collaboration in technology development, and discuss similar efforts in other parts of the world. This meeting is concurrent with other roadmapping efforts happening in other regions of the world; e.g. DOE/NSF deliberations in US, among others. The hope is that these worldwide roadmapping efforts at some point will eventually converge to a global research program.
This workshop is the third in the series. Registration is free of charge, and is open now. The meeting is open to all interested participants but registration is necessary. There are no registration fees and we will pay for lunches/coffee breaks during the workshop. Participants have to pay for their own travel and accommodation.
