Dear Colleagues,
 Details of the President's FY2010 budget proposal have been 
released and are available at:

http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/

The Department of Energy appendix is at:

High Energy Physics.-The high energy physics (HEP) program
aims to understand how our universe works at its most fundamental
level, by discovering the most elementary constituents
of matter and energy, probing the interactions between them,
and exploring the basic nature of space and time itself. The program
encompasses both experimental and theoretical particle
physics research and related advanced accelerator and detector
technology research and development (R&D). The primary mode
of experimental research involves the study of collisions of energetic
particles using large particle accelerators or colliding beam
facilities.
In addition to contributing to breakthrough scientific discoveries,
HEP research also makes major contributions to accelerator
technology and provides the expertise necessary for the expansion
of such technology into medicine, industry, and homeland security,
as well as materials, biology, and chemistry research using
light sources. One notable recent example is the Linac Coherent
Light Source, currently under construction at the SLAC National
Accelerator Laboratory: the concept and proof-of-principle for
this state-of-the-art basic energy sciences facility grew out of
particle accelerator technology developed for the HEP program.
The HEP budget request supports a world leadership program
at Fermilab (the Tevatron Collider and Neutrinos at the Main
Injector [NuMI]) and phase-out activities at the SLAC B-factory,
which has completed its scientific mission. Funding is provided
for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) research program, including
support for software and computing, pre-operations and maintenance
of the U.S. built systems that are part of the LHC detectors;
and accelerator commissioning and accelerator physics studies
using the LHC. The first beam collisions at LHC are anticipated
in the fall of 2009, and HEP is contributing to the first phase of
planned upgrades of the accelerator.
While the future trajectory of the worldwide HEP program has
an emphasis on the energy frontier, the proposed long-range
program will provide the U.S. with a balanced and diverse array
of world-leading efforts, including new facilities to ensure continued
U.S. leadership at the intensity and cosmic frontiers of exploration,
such as intense particle beams to probe rare and subtle
particle interactions, or ground and space-based observatories
for understanding dark energy and dark matter. Accelerator
technology R&D is focused on developing infrastructure and expertise
to fabricate and test superconducting radio frequency
structures, in view of their potential applicability to many scientific
disciplines, and HEP is beginning fabrication of new advanced
accelerator R&D facilities to develop new particle acceleration
technologies for the future.
