More than 600 particle physicists met at the end of July to discuss the future of their field at the Snowmass 2013 Conference held at the University of Minnesota. The conference included talks about upcoming directions in particle fields, a Physics Slam where scientists competed for the approval of the audience and a public lecture by Nobel Prize winning physicist Saul Perlmutter on Dark Energy.

Coverage of the Snowmass Conference can be found here and here.
