USQCD All-Hands Meeting





The USQCD All-Hands Meeting (AHM), hosted by Jefferson Lab, will begin on Friday May 1, and conclude at lunchtime on Saturday May 2.  Immediately following the AHM, there will be a software workshop.

Note that both the AHM, and subsequent software meeting, will take place as a virtual meeting, which we feel can fully accomplish the goals of both meetings.

Note that all participants must register for the event.
