Help Name the Panel!
The primary recommendation of the Task Force Report is the creation of a Detector R&D Coordinating Panel (DRDCP). The primary role of the panel would be to promote, coordinate and assist in generic detector R&D nationally on behalf of the community. It has been pointed out by many that DRDCP is difficult to pronounce. Some have dubbed it the “acronym panel”. To rectify the situation the Task Force is conducting a panel naming competition. Please send suggestions to email@example.com by December 3, 2011. The best suggestion, as judged by the Task Force, will receive a prize of $100.
