Symposium in Celebration of the

Fixed Target Program
with the Tevatron

June 2, 2000

After seventeen productive and exciting years, fixed target running with the Tevatron has come to an end.

On June 2 we shall mark the end of the Tevatron fxed-target era, with a one-day symposium celebrating the physics, the technology, and the people who were a part of the program. The celebration will also look ahead to a future program with the new Main Injector.

In lieu of proceedings, we are putting together a commemorative book, including a section on each experiment that ran in the Tevatron era.

Registration form

There is no registration fee, but if you register by May 19, there will be a copy of the commemorative book for you at the Symposium.
