Requests can be made for any period and need not commence on any particular date. For further information, please contact the Housing Office at 630-840-3777, fax 630-840-2823 or email housing@fnal.gov.

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).
