National Road Map for HEP for the Next Twenty Years

Dr. Norbert Holtkamp


A sub panel of the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel was charged last year to produce a national road map for HEP for the next twenty years. The sub panel was supposed to weigh the scientific promise and programmatic importance of both accelerator and non accelerator based efforts. The plan should indicate what funding levels the road map would require (including possible construction of new facilities), and what the impacts and priorities should be if the funding available provides constant level of effort (FY 2001 President's Budget Request) into the years (FY 2002-2022). This is a very broad charge and the sub panel tried to answer it giving very clear guidance on what the future for high energy physics should be. The HEPAP sub panel report is out as a draft and has initiated a lot of discussion on priorities. The talk will try to summarize the approach, intermediate steps and the results of the report and try to explain the five most strongest recommendations.
