Chicago Science Fest May 28-30

Chicago Science Fest, sponsored by the Illinois Science Council, includes a panel with Congressman Bill Foster, film screenings, an art exhibit and a full day of science talks aimed at adults, including physics talks by Fermilab's Dan Hooper, Elise Jennings and Keith Matera. More details and the full schedule are available online.

Flexible Work Program launched

Flexible work options -- including telecommuting, flextime and alternative work schedules -- are now available for Fermilab employees. For more information and to view the new labwide policy, visit the Flexible Work Program webpage.

Plan ahead for inclement weather

Before inclement weather strikes, talk with your supervisor to determine if telecommuting is an option in the event of dangerous weather. If it is and you have not already completed a lab telecommuting agreement, please fill it out and give it to your supervisor (the agreement must be completed and given to your supervisor prior to an inclement weather situation).

All employees, particularly those whose work requires them to be present at the lab or those who do not wish to travel during inclement weather when the lab is considered open, should refer to the Inclement Weather and Snow Policy.

New plan for U.S. particle physics

The 10-year P5 report was approved by the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel on May 22. On May 28, Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer led an all-hands meeting to discuss the P5 report and how Fermilab's scientific program will align with the plan. A video of the talk and the presentation slides are available in the online archive.

See Nigel Lockyer's August 19 Director's Corner for a P5 progress update.
