Major Activities of the 2011 PFC
Pushing Cosmology to the Edge
Michael S. Turner, Director
John E. Carlstrom, Deputy Director
The "Pushing Cosmology to the Edge" PFC at the KICP comprises 8 Major Activities led by the 13 co-Is:
Detector Development and Computational Cosmology are cross-cutting, science-enabling activities. The Conferences, Workshops, and Visitors MA will engage the larger cosmology community, and the Education, Outreach, & Diversity MA will provide opportunities for all PFC members to broaden the impact of their research. The KICP Fellows are the centerpiece of the PFC, and the opportunities afforded them by the PFC will prepare them to be teacher/scholars and future leaders in cosmology.
Among the features of this PFC are continuing strong ties with the Fermilab Center for Particle Astrophysics, new ties to Argonne National Laboratory and 21 Key Collaborators from around the country.
