Dear Colleagues -



A number of us who work in the area of Neutrinos and Fundamental Symmetries=
 have been concerned about how to effectively represent our field as a majo=
r and core thrust within the US nuclear physics enterprise. A town meeting =
was held at the Fall DNP meeting, and there was significant community inter=
est in creating a group to address this issue =96 similar in function to us=
er groups at large facilities. The initial vision/mission/outcomes for this=
 group are presented below:


Neutrinos and Fundamental Symmetries Interest Group (NuFunSym)

Vision:
To promote a vibrant and sustained future for the study of Neutrinos and Fu=
ndamental Symmetries as one of the core thrusts of nuclear physics in the U=
nited States.

Mission:
Provide a voice for the large body of physicists working in Neutrinos and F=
undamental Symmetries in order to articulate the breadth and depth of the a=
ssociated science and assist in identifying and advocating for future plans=
 in this area of nuclear physics.

Expected Outcomes:

=B7      Creation of an organized interest group, development of the proces=
s to join this group, establishing a governance structure and election of a=
 steering committee.

=B7      Creation of an email distribution list for communicating news that=
 is relevant to members.

=B7      Development of "workforce data" on the subfield.

=B7      Creation and maintenance of an archive of white papers, proposals =
and LOI within the sub-field.

=B7      Articulation of the breadth, vision, and need for balance in the s=
ub-field,  providing input to strategic planning efforts such as NSAC Long =
Range Plan, etc.

=B7      Organization of regular briefings to the agencies (DOE and NSF) by=
 the steering committee in order to project the broad interest of the group=
, as distinct from the interests of large Laboratories and major facilities=
.

=B7      Facilitation of connections with other fields, such as high energy=
, astrophysics, AMO =85.

=B7      Exploration of options for organizing an APS topical group.

=B7      Organization of Interest Group meetings at APS meetings.



If you think you could be interested in this Interest Group on Neutrinos an=
d Fundamental Symmetries, please go to this web site and sign up by clickin=
g the "Join NuFunSym" button on the left panel.
