DPF Task Force on Instrumentation in High Energy Physics

Last October , a workshop on Detector R&D was held at Fermilab sponsored by the five DOE Laboratories and the DPF. As the slides show, there is fascinating instrumentation research in our community at both the labs and the universities, but there is also reason to think that this effort would benefit from coherent, national attention. To that end, during the discussion the final day it was decided that the DPF organize a Task Force to consider how a national effort might be created. The attachment to this post is the charge to the Task Force. Also attached is a memo to the workshop attendees describing the task force plans. The membership is currently being identified.
