The ceremony, which will include short talks by Fred
Kavli (The Kavli Foundation), Stanford Provost John Etchemendy and SLAC
Director Jonathan Dorfan, will be followed by a reception on the ROB
patio. Drinks and appetizers will be served.
The SLAC community is invited and
encouraged to attend this important milestone in the history of the
Laboratory. The building will eventually house around 90 members of
KIPAC. It represents an important commitment on the part of SLAC to a
new generation of science—bridging the worlds of experimental and
theoretical particle astrophysics—in the hope of making new and exciting
discoveries in these crucial fields.
KIPAC Director Roger Blandford and Deputy Director Steven Kahn hope that
all SLAC staff will join them to celebrate this happy occasion.
