UEC Home

The Fermilab Users Organization is an organization of scientists and engineers currently engaged in advancing our understanding of the nature of matter and energy. These Users anticipate needing significant resources from the Laboratory to conduct basic research in particle physics, astrophysics, the development of accelerators and their inter-relationship. Its purpose is to provide a forum for discussion of scientific and administrative matters relevant to the organization and functions of the Laboratory. In particular, it should play an important advisory role in determining the relationship of outside Users to the Laboratory and the support they will have in implementing their experimental programs.

Election for 2018-2020 UEC members is underway, we strongly encourage you to run for election. please fill out the Nomination Form, obtain 10 supporting signatures from the Fermilab User Community, and send your nomination form to the Fermilab Users Office no later than 3 pm CT on Wednesday, July 25, 2018.
