Charge to the Committee
At the dawn of the 21st century, elementary particle physics is poised to address some of the most basic questions in science. Obtaining the answers to these questions will require a global effort of great scale and complexity. The committee is charged to construct a plan for U.S. participation in this effort. In particular, the committee will
Identify, articulate, and prioritize the scientific questions and opportunities that define elementary particle physics.
Recommend a 15-year implementation plan with realistic, ordered priorities to realize these opportunities.
