2017 SLAC Summer Institute
The SLAC Summer Institute (SSI) is an annual two-week-long Summer School tradition since 1973. Lectures are given Monday through Friday each morning. The afternoons contain a mixture of special lectures, topical conference talks, discussion sessions, student projects and tours. In the evenings, there are social activities and student poster sessions. The attendance is typically a mixture from graduate students to postdocs, as well as senior researchers.
The theme of the 2017 SSI will be ''Cosmic Opportunities”, focusing on upcoming opportunities to expand our knowledge and understanding of the physics of the universe via cosmological measurements of CMB, Dark Energy, Dark Matter and Gravitational Waves. New fundamental observations are forthcoming from improved experiments and new frontier facilities. What do we hope to learn from this new information ?
