Forthcoming PPRP meeting - 24 January 2018

3 November 2017

The next meeting of the Projects Peer Review Panel (PPRP) will take place in CR12/13, Building 68, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Didcot, OX11 0QX on the 24 January 2018. The Panel will be reviewing one project proposal.

Members of the science community should contact Tahmina Aziz (tel: 01793 442058) if they are likely to attend the open presentation.

The proposal being reviewed is as follows:

24 January 2018

12:00 – 13:15
The High-Luminosity Upgrade of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Detector

A programme of luminosity upgrades is planned at CERN, which will maintain the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the high energy frontier of particle physics into the late 2030s.

The international CMS detector will require upgrades in order to maintain performance and allow scientific return from the LHC to continue in the long term. This proposal is for the UK component of the upgrade programme for the CMS detector and proposes a five-year project that will deliver tracking, calorimetry and trigger capabilities for CMS.

The project will begin at the conclusion of the currently-funded R&D phase of the project, and will be followed by a two-year installation and commissioning period running through LHC Long Shutdown 3 (LS3), culminating in the start of High-Luminosity LHC physics running in April 2026.

The Panel goes into closed session for the rest of the day.
