Our Next Chapter Meeting – Wednesday January 10, 2018

 

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment

 

A global neutrino physics community is developing a leading-edge, dual-site experiment for neutrino science and proton decay studies, the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), hosted at Fermilab in Batavia, IL.The facility required for this experiment, the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF), is an internationally designed, coordinated and funded program. Once it is completed, it will comprise the world's highest-intensity neutrino beam, at Fermilab, and the infrastructure necessary to support massive, cryogenic far detectors installed deep underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF), 800 miles (1,300 km) downstream, in Lead, SD. LBNF is also responsible for the facilities to house the experiment's near detectors on the Fermilab site. LBNF is tightly coordinated with the DUNE collaboration designing the detectors that will carry out its experimental program. This talk will describe the challenges and highlights of the LBNF Project.

 

 

Elaine McCluskey, S.E., P.E., PMP

Ms. McCluskey has been an engineer and project manager at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, IL, for more than 20 years. Presently serving as the LBNF Project Manager, she has played a role in several neutrino projects as a construction and project manager. Before joining Fermilab, she worked for several small consulting firms in the Chicago area as well as running her own firm in the 1990’s. She earned B.S Physics from Carleton College and B.S. Civil Engineering from Washington University, as well as Masters Project Management from Keller Graduate School.

 

New Meeting Location!

 

Unfortunately for us, our current meeting location, Giuseppe’s La Cantina in Des Plaines is closing at the end of the year.  The Executive Board is currently looking for a new permanent location.  Our January Meeting will be held at:

Our regular meetings typically begin with a cash bar social hour from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM.   Following dinner is our program or presentation, and after that a short business meeting.  The meeting usually concludes at 9:00 PM.  The cost of the meeting for members is $25.00.  The cost for non-members is $30. Full time engineering students pay just $10.00.  This covers both the food and presentation.  Checks and cash payments are accepted

Please e-mail William Heine at wwheine@sbcglobal.net if you plan to attend so we can determine the meeting room size.
