1 Results from the survey on The Future of HEP
The Young Physicists Panel presents Results from the survey on The Future of HEP survey design demographics balance & focus globalization outreach building the field physics picking a plan Ben Kilminster University of Rochester BNL, September 27, 2001

2 Young Physicists Panel
(Founding members) Florencia Canelli, Brian Connolly, Robin Erbacher, Bonnie Fleming, George Fleming, Greg Graham, Deborah Harris, Eric Hawker, Michael Hildreth, Benjamin Kilminster, John Krane, Sabine Lammers, David Toback, Andre Turcot, Mayda Velasco, Gordon Watts, Sam Zeller, Eric Zimmerman

3 Young Physicists Panel
What is YPP ? Group of “young people” (have neither tenure nor other permanent position) Interested in furthering a positive future for high energy physics Address unique issues of young people Formed in expectation of Snowmass Unique issues could be things like: will there be enough jobs for us? – will it take 10 years to get a PhD?

4 Survey First project of zero-budget YPP should have a good results-to-cost ratio … Collect data about the issues of HEP from a diverse group of physicists with varied career stages, backgrounds, and research areas. Survey should cover variety of questions from What is the most important physics for the field ? to Is it more important to be near your detector or your advisor ?

5 Survey Implementation
Anonymous web-based survey Mainly multiple choice questions Space for comments Soliciting participants Coincide with first 2 weeks of Snowmass for increased publicity Online news, distribution lists, paper copies Analysis Survey responses converted to ntuples with scripts and ROOT.

6 Demographics / BNL 30% at Snowmass (365) 70% at Snowmass (36)

7 Demographics Geography

8 Plot Conventions Top panel, “Americans” Bottom panel, “non-Americans”
“Young” Tenured normalized Young Tenured Total Amer 334 328 662 non- Amer 523 323 846 857 651 1508

9 Physics type / Collaboration Size

10 Location of work

11 Balance : Important to have …?
Diverse range of experiments Redundant detectors

12 Balance : Important to …?
promote mix of physicists host Astro-physics

13 Globalization … detectors , supervisors
Do we really need to be near the detector? Globalization … detectors , supervisors

14 Globalization… labs, regional centers
Regional centers: remote control rooms, (permanent?) video conferencing, data processing Globalization… labs, regional centers

15 Outreach …to public, govt.
50% willing to get personally involved , 50 % no/maybe

16 Why choose HEP ? Originally And then

17 Losing HEP talent ? Are we retaining enough talent ? Why leave?

18 Most compelling physics

19 Most compelling physics … BNL

20 Facilities for new physics

21 Facility in U.S. ? … BNL Different classification

22 How to Pick a Plan What has most affected your current opinions of the options for the future of HEP? Talking to colleagues Current work Workshops/conferences Sitting and thinking

23 How to pick a plan … BNL

24 How much do you know about…

25 How much do you know about…

26 Do you know enough to decide?

27 Question #42: Pick a plan We looked at the online material for timelines (we took them at their word) Few options could begin construction within 3-5 years “Committing” to a plan that takes longer = waiting (we can change our minds) Only listed items that preclude other options ($150M proton driver not listed)

28 What are the choices … “If you had to choose from the following options, which one would you pick: A new e+e- collider (TESLA,NLC,CLIC) in the U.S. soon, with continued research in VLHC, and muon storage ring/muon collider technologies. TESLA in Germany soon, with the goal of a post-LHC higher energy VLHC in the U.S. TESLA in Germany soon, with the goal of an eventual muon storage ring/muon collider in the U.S. Reserve judgment for several years, continue research. Other (specify in the comments section).''

29 Choose one … Combining the two TESLA options…

30 Depending on how much you know …
“Know enough” “Unsure,” or “Don’t know enough”

31 Choice… by classification of “American”

32 Pick a plan … BNL “Do you know enough?” Pick a plan

33 Broad Conclusions Young and tenured physicists have similar opinions
Continental divide … Lack of permanent positions primary disadvantage to physics career Field is not doing enough outreach Higgs/EWSB clear priorities ® new facility, but physicists prize a balanced program Given the options we listed, total support for a linear collider is strong (nearly 80%)

34 What next for YPP? Survey data available online, documentation released (short and long form), hope HEPAP finds it useful Young Particle Physicists chapters Outreach to government, to the public, international issues, “young physicist” issues Another survey in a couple years? BNL – Vivek Jain Boston U. CERN CESR DESY FNAL FSU OSU U. Chicago U. Pitt. U. Wash. Root trees, paw ntuples, excel format click “survey” hep-ex Submitted an NSF budget proposal
