The European Strategy Preparatory Group (ESPG)
Call for Submissions

As part of the Update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics, the European Strategy Preparatory Group welcomes submissions on issues related to the strategy from individual physicists, from groups of scientists representing a community (an experiment, a topic of theoretical research, etc.) as well as from Institutions and Organizations (funding agencies, ministries, etc). These contributions will be discussed at the meetings of the Preparatory Group and during the Open Symposium, and made available to the Strategy Group for drafting the Update of the Strategy.

In addition, everyone is encouraged to attend the Open Symposium, to be held on 10-12 September 2012 at Cracow, where ample time within each session will be dedicated for discussion and input from the floor.
