Physics of the Cosmos Program Analysis Group (PhysPAG)

PCOS/PhysPAG Town Halls: April 9, 2013 at HEAD, April 16, 2013 at APS

The PCOS Program Office and the Physics of the Cosmos Program Analysis Group (PhysPAG) are organizing two town hall sessions at the upcoming HEAD and APS meetings in Monterey and Denver, respectively.

As a reminder, the PhysPAG serves as a forum for soliciting and coordinating input and analysis from the scientific community in support of the PCOS program objectives. These two town halls will focus on NASA's astrophysics division's implementation of the decadal survey.

The two timeslots are:
