The scientific community is eager to learn about the status of LBNF and DUNE – formed very close to one year ago. The two highest-profile conferences for neutrino and particle physics – that only take place in even years—are coming up this summer. The 27th International Conference on Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics (Neutrino 2016) will be held in London from July 4-9 and the 38th International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP 2016) will take place from August 3-10 in Chicago, next door to Fermilab.

The DUNE Physics Coordinator, Jon Urheim, will present the newest developments from DUNE in a plenary talk at the Neutrino Conference. DUNE and LBNF have been invited to give a range of parallel session talks at ICHEP, covering the experiment’s physics sensitivities, automatic reconstruction and particle identification, status of the detector R&D and the LBNF beamline. Both meetings will also feature a large number of posters focusing on particular aspects of this work.

In addition, many smaller, often more topical conferences, are keen on learning more about DUNE and its physics capabilities. The DUNE Speakers Committee encourages collaborators at all levels, especially younger members, to volunteer.
