Agenda | Registration | Poster Abstracts | Festa Italiana

The annual Fermilab Users Meeting will be held on June 28-30th 2023. There will be various food options every night of the conference. It is a great opportunity to meet with colleagues and get to know what is happening at the lab.

This meeting provides an opportunity for Fermilab users and employees to discuss the latest and leading-edge physics results from the experimental and theory programs occurring at the laboratory, as well as exciting new future initiatives at Fermilab. This year’s theme for the meeting is “NEW IDEAS FOR FUTURE PROJECTS” as we reflect on recent achievements and events and continue to look ahead as a community.

We are working to highlight and integrate the lab community as a whole. We’ve designed the agenda to hopefully have something to appeal to everyone. Please register on indico the deadline is June12, 2023!

Festa Italiana

Benvenuti! Festa Italiana is back for a fifth year! This year will be in person. We will have an exciting In Person event centered around Italian food, with the opportunity to meet and greet Fermilab friends, old and new. Festa Italiana will be on Tuesday, June 27th in the evening, more details to follow here and on indico.


Please register for the 56th Annual Users Meeting on indico! We encourage you to register early (the deadline is June12, 2023) to help us with planning and to make sure you don’t miss any important announcements.

Additional highlights

Our scientific program includes many excellent and innovative talks from the intensity, energy, and cosmic frontiers, as well as divisions and projects across the laboratory. We have a few highly accessible “Introduction to…” talks intended to help everyone at the lab, from field experts to brand new, feel like they understand, appreciate, and are a part of the scientific mission of the laboratory.

We think you’ll also enjoy our poster session, in-person where you can view innovative early-career contributions whilst networking with your coworkers and friends. The poster session will be in the last session on the first day, Wednesday, June 28th. There will also be a reception with the poster session. Posters abstracts are due by June 5th, 2023, 11:59 PM CDT. Further details on the format will be provided after registration.
