DESY Physics Research Committee

Welcome to the Physics Research Committee (PRC)

The PRC gives advice to the DESY directorate on all matters related to the particle physics programme at DESY.

At present, the exeprimental particle physics programme is focused on DESY's activities at the LHC experiments ATLAS and CMS (physics, detector upgrades, etc.), on the R&D for the International Linear Collider (ILC) and its detectors, on the BELLE / BELLE II experiment, and on the ALPS-II experiment. The comprehensive theory programme in collider phenomenology, particle cosmology, string theory and lattice field theory is also reviewed by the PRC. The PRC also comments on the DESY's computing efforts, and it reviews remaining activities connected to the HERA experiments H1, HERMES and ZEUS.

PRC Chair: Philip Burrows (Oxford University)
PRC Scientific Secretary: Thomas Schoerner-Sadenius (DESY) - thomas.schoerner@desy.de

Next (88th) PRC meeting (PRC88): 12/13 November 2019 in Hamburg
The next PRC meeting will comprise an in-depth review of the MADMAX proposal for DESY. This review will take place on Monday, 11 November 2019. Furthermore, PRC88 will be held together with second meeting of the new Astroparticle Physics Committee (APC).
