Chaired by Michael Turner of Fermilab and the University of Chicago, the CPU was established early last year. The Phase I report to be presented at the April Meeting summarizes the science and discusses the most timely opportunities in a rapidly developing and very active area of research, according to Turner.The second phase of the committee's task is to evaluate and prioritize projects that address science at the intersection of physics and astronomy. The committee has also been asked to address the issue of inter-agency cooperation and possible barriers to it, since many of the projects in this interdisciplinary area will likely be funded by more than one agency.
