Science and Engineering at Henderson DUSEL Capstone Workshop

Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York
May 4 - 7, 2006

The Science and Engineering at Henderson DUSEL Capstone Workshop will be held at the Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York. All scientific sessions will be held in the auditorim and other meeting rooms in the Student Activity Center on the University west campus.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to the DUSEL community to contribute to the conceptual design of a Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory at the Henderson Mine, Colorado.

A preliminary conceptual design has been developed by the HUSEP (Henderson Underground Science and Engineering Project) collaboration based on the input from six topical workshops we held during the past 6 months (Management, Strategic Vision, Biology, Physics, Geoscience, Mining Engineering as well as accompanying outreach workshops), the earlier DUSEL Solicitation-1 workshops and interim reports, and private discussions between over 100 collaboration members and the DUSEL community.

On the first day of the workshop the current status of the Henderson DUSEL conceptual design will be presented. An essential component of the workshop will be a series of presentations on the second and third days in which potential users of DUSEL will present their proposed experimental program with an update added at the workshop that includes a critique of the Henderson DUSEL conceptual design relevant to their program. All members of the DUSEL community are cordially invited to request time for a presentation at the Workshop by submitting a 1-page Expression of Interest (EoI), plus any supporting materials, by March 31, 2006. These submissions and Workshop presentations will be used to further develop a concept for the initial suite of experiments and a vision for the long term development of the laboratory science program. EoIs may also be submitted without a request for a workshop presentation.

For more detailed information, please see Henderson DUSEL Capstone Workshop invitation.

There is no registration fee for this workshop. We urge all participants to register as soon as possible using the online registration form on this Workshop webpage.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Workshop at Stony Brook in May.
