"The National Science Foundation, One Particle Physicist's Experience"
 
 Slideshow (PDF)
ABSTRACT:
During a recent term of service on the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel (HEPAP), which jointly advises DOE and NSF on particle physics matters, the speaker was persuaded of the importance of direct participation by active research scientists in the process of federal funding for research and education programs. This view has motivated a temporary term of service by the speaker at the National Science Foundation. The presentation will provide a view of how the NSF conducts its business in Elementary Particle Physics, from the perspective of an university-based experimentalist and faculty member serving as a visiting program officer.
