As discussed at the Fermilab Town Hall meeting Thursday, September 27, Fermilab
and the Fermilab Users Executive Committee are organizing a workshop
on the physics potential of a high intensity proton source.
In the event that the ILC is delayed from the technically limited timeline,
the Fermilab Steering Group has proposed the construction of an ILC-like
linac that, in conjunction with the rest of the Fermilab accelerator chain,
would produce high intensity proton beams at various energies. The
report of the Steering Group can be found at

The workshop to be held at Fermilab on November 16 and 17 would focus
on the potential physics program associated with a high intensity proton
source. The plan is to have a follow-up workshop in January.
We would appreciate your input on possible speakers for the workshop,
suggestions or volunteers are welcome.
We apologize for the short notice, but it is important that this process
begin soon, well in advance of the P5 meeting to be held in early 2008.
people who are unable to attend, video will be available. Details on
registration and the agenda for the workshop will follow later. We
hope you can attend.
