Fermi Summer School 2021
The 2021 Fermi Summer School will be virtual. The Fermi Mission will hold a virtual summer workshop series of interactive activities to learn about Fermi data analysis and lectures on gamma-ray astrophysics. The virtual school will consist of weekly online workshops and lecture presentations. These will be held on Mondays from June 7th to July 26th with the exception of July 5th. Lectures will be held on Mondays from 11 am to 12 pm (Eastern US, GMT-4) and analysis tutorial live sessions will be held on Mondays from 2-3:30 pm.
"The material is designed for graduate students and early postdocs starting analysis projects in gamma-ray astrophysics that involve Fermi data and science. In addition to standard analysis using the Fermitools, we will include sessions covering pulsar analysis with the Large Area Telescope and gamma-ray burst analysis with the Gamma-ray Burst Monitor. We are seeking attendees that are interested in engaging in analysis activities and interacting with instructors and the other students in group activities. There will be no registration fee, but if demand is high, we may need to limit attendance and prioritize students who are developing near-term research projects using Fermi data." - from the Organizing Committee
If you are interested in attending the virtual summer school, please fill out this form to register. Please register by May 31, 2021 to allow time to prepare for the first session. Registrants will be contacted with program details, information about setting up the analysis environment, preparation for the tutorials, and connection information for the live sessions.

Last Fermi LAT collaboration meeting, was on Zoom
The LAT collaboration meeting was held virtually on Zoom. It started on March 15 and ended on March 19, 2021. The agenda is on Confluence here.
2021 Fermi Symposium
The 9th International Fermi Symposium, in light of the development of COVID-19 around the globe and measured steps taken by governments to reopen countries only slowly, run fully virtual on April 12-17, 2021.
Registration and accommodation fees paid to the venue for the 9th International Fermi Symposium, because of contractual obligation, will be used for a future in-person meeting at the Misty Hills in Johannesburg, South Africa. Those who have already paid will receive credit toward that event. If you have registered and paid the fees for the 9th International Fermi Symposium, you do not need to take further action. New participants will be contacted about registration for the virtual Symposium. Check the timetable here for the presentations and the recordings. Visit gather.town to look at the posters.
