Transparencies from the report of the Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) to HEPAP on May 29, 2008 can be found here (pdf). The overall recommendation of the panel, chaired by Charles Baltay of Yale University are: "The panel recommends that the US maintain a leadership role in world-wide particle physics. The panel recommends a strong, integrated research program for US particle physics at three frontiers: the Energy Frontier, using both hadron colliders and lepton colliders to discover and illuminate the physics of the Terascale; the Intensity Frontier, comprising neutrino physics and high-sensitivity experiments on rare processes; and the Cosmic Frontier, probing the nature of dark matter and dark energy and other topics in particle astrophysics."
