Report to NuPECC on NSAC activities R.E. Tribble, NSAC Chair June 10, 2006
NSAC Membership for 2006 Ani Aprahamian Ulrich HeinzSusan Seestrom (APS/DNP) Notre DameOhio State Univ.LANL (>4/06) Douglas Bryman Roy LaceyBradley Sherrill (APS/DNP) Univ.

[Members are now special government employees]
New vs. Old NSAC My goal is to make the new NSAC look like the old NSAC The role of NSAC is unchanged: provide guidance to DOE and NSF when asked One change – takes 6 months to approve new members so cannot quickly replace someone
NSAC Information web site: Includes links to membership, charter, on- going activities, reports, meeting agendas and minutes.
Meeting on March 2-3, 2006 Reports on FY07 budget submission for DOE and NSF Report submitted from NuSAG on accelerator and reactor -oscillation experiments Science updates from user labs (ATLAS, BNL, HRIBF, JLAB and NSCL) New charge to NuSAG Discussion of possible future charges Agenda:
Funding Information (implications for NSAC) Federal funding split: Department of Energy 90% National Science Foundation 10% Some details from FY06 and FY07
Budgets for FY06 Department of Energy (due to late change) – $367 M after 1% rescission – $34 M below FY05 (actual $) – Out year guidance – flat or reduced budgets – Led to NSAC subcommittee report last year National Science Foundation – $ M (includes centers like JINA) – $ in FY05
* *Private Funding Added to this amount
What is the Future of U.S. Science? Calls in Congress to double the NSF and DOE Science budgets (68/100 Senators signed a letter in 06 calling for major increases in DOE funding) – yet funding for physical science has been decreasing as in Presidents agenda Many reports generated about U.S. science New study by NAS just released: Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future This has had an impact!
Budgets for FY07 Department of Energy and National Science Foundation to benefit from: From State of Union Address January 31, 2006
Connection To NSAC
Next meeting – July 21, 2006 Expect to receive two charges: – Call for a new Long Range Plan – Request for a Committee of Visitors for DOE LRP issues now being addressed Budget provided for LRP guidance is crucial to the report produced by NSAC
Long Range Plan Issues: Program Balance Physics of Nuclei and Astrophysics – traditional nuclear structure – nuclear astrophysics Quantum Chromodynamics – encompasses much of RHIC and CEBAF Fundamental Symmetries and Neutrinos – neutron physics at NIST and SNS (EDM) – double beta decay – solar and reactor neutrino experiments
Long Range Plan Issues: Facilities Budget Guidance in charge letter critical Status of JLAB upgrade (FY07 budget) RHIC II upgrade From RIA to ??? Longer term – electron-ion collider?
Long Range Plan Issues: Connections Consider program in international context Likely to call on some of you for help and information about European programs
