P5 WEB BOARD
High-Energy Physics Advisory Panel chair Fred
Gilman, acting on the recommendation of the
DOE/NSF HEPAP Subpanel on Long-Range
Planning, has established a website for comments
from the U.S. high-energy physics community on
setting up the Particle Physics Project Prioritization
Panel (P5). P5 is seen in the Subpanel’s report as
being the keeper of the particle physics roadmap
and as acting to set priorities for medium sized
projects (with a cost of roughly $50M to $500M).
