Report from DOE
LARP/CERN Hi-Lumi Joint Meeting
November 18, 2011
Office of High Energy Physics
Office of Science, U.S. Department of Energy
Plan is based on High Energy Physics Advisory Panel “P5” report
This is still the plan.
Implementation at the Energy and Cosmic Frontiers is clear
Implementation at the Intensity
Frontier has been more challenging
*Note: FY 2010 appropriation including SBIR/STTR was $810 million, so the total FY 2012 request is a reduction of $13 million from comparable FY 2010 funding
Office of Science Priorities.—The Committee commends the Office of Science for identifying three clear priorities for basic scientific research:
—the discovery and design of new materials for the generation, storage, and use of energy,
—better understanding of microorganisms and plants for improved biofuels production, and
—the development and deployment of more powerful computing capabilities to take advantage of modeling and simulation to advance energy technologies and maintain U.S. economic competitiveness.
FY 2012 Senate Appropriations Bill:
“The Committee directs the Department to submit a 10-year strategic plan by June 1,
2012 for accelerator technology research and development to advance
accelerator applications in energy and the environment, medicine, industry, national
security, and discovery science.”
“...the United States has unique capabilities that should be exploited to develop a
world-leading program of neutrino science…The Committee directs the Office of
Science to submit a report not later than 180 days of enactment that lays out
—the expected benefits of intensity frontier science,
—a strategy for maintaining the U.S. lead, and
—the funding needs over the next 10 years, including construction activities, of implementing the proposed strategy.

CERN, December 19, 1997
A U.S.-CERN cooperation agreement was signed by the Secretary of Energy, the Director of NSF, Director General of CERN, and the President of CERN Council.
The U.S. was granted Observer Status at CERN.
Experiments and Accelerator protocols were also signed by the Director of the Office of Energy Research, DOE, the Assistant Director of MPS, NSF, and the CERN DG.
The scope of the agreement is limited to LHC activities
The accelerator portion of the agreement concluded in 2007, the detector portion remains in force until 2017.
A new instrument for LHC cooperation will have to be negotiated so that it can be in place in 2017
Funding / FY (in $M)
DOE-HEP provides research support ($80M in FY 2011) to about 1,200 scientists and students at five national labs and over 60 universities
DOE-HEP funding for all LHC-related activities total about $160M/year in FY 2011
