Meeting of the APPEC Scientific Advisory Committee
On the 18th and 19th of June the APPEC Scientific Advisory Committee came together at CERN. The purpose of the meeting was to bring everyone up to date and to discuss and distribute future tasks. This includes the activities of the neutrinoless double beta decay committee, who is currently planning an APPEC community meeting on October 31. Furthermore, the establishment of a Dark Matter direct detection committee is ongoing and a draft mandate document is sent to the APPEC General Assembly for approval. In the field of CMB, a common European strategy is still under discussion, therefore a meeting is planned for September. (https://indico.in2p3.fr/event/19414/)
The proposal of regular APPEC Town meetings was discussed with great interest and approved. It was agreed to aim for a meeting in Fall 2020 and the Scientific Advisory Committee will give input on the topics to discuss.
