ACTION: Notice of request for information (RFI). AGENCY: The Office of High Energy Physics (HEP), as the Department of Energy’s (DOE or Department) lead office for long-term accelerator research and development (R&D), invites interested parties to provide comments on proposed policies, practices and mechanisms which DOE–HEP may SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 implement to foster robust academic R&D and workforce development in this vitally important high technology area. DATES: Written comments and information are requested on or before June 18, 2015. ADDRESSES: Interested persons may submit comments only by email. Comments must be addressed to AcademicAcceleratorScienceRFI@ science.doe.gov, with the subject line ‘‘Academic Accelerator Science RFI Comments’’. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Bruce P. Strauss, (301) 903–3705, AcademicAcceleratorScienceRFI@ science.doe.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Challenge Accelerators play a key role in the discovery sciences, including High Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics, and Basic Energy Sciences. Modern discovery science accelerators are high technology instruments of remarkable complexity, having advanced over eight orders of magnitude in energy since their invention. Aggressive reinvention of the underlying technology has driven improvements in this science, and has required sustained investment in accelerator science R&D that advances the methods, materials, and understanding of accelerator science. Accelerator Science is an interdisciplinary field that encompasses the design and improvement of particle accelerators, the development of new methods of charged particle production and manipulation, and the development of unique supporting technologies needed for accelerators. Significant career specialization has evolved as the demand for ever greater performance has required reaching deep into mathematics, computation, materials science, plasma science, radio frequency technology, superconducting materials, laser engineering, and a variety of other disciplines. The accelerator science workforce must be capable of spanning both the breadth and depth of the subject matter needed to build discovery science accelerators. It must also possess the range of skills and proficiency levels needed to support operating accelerators for science, medicine, industry, security, defense, and energy & environmental applications. National laboratories, academia, and industry each play vital, mutually reinforcing roles in the success of the accelerator-based discovery sciences, and in providing the scientific and technological advances necessary to sustain U.S. leadership in this area.
