 +You mean "​[[http://​abracadabra.mit.edu/​|ABRACADABRA]]"​ (A Broadband or Resonant Approach to Cosmic Axion Detection with an Amplifying B-field Ring Apparatus)? ​ Or "​[[http://​dmtpc.mit.edu/​DarkLight/​|DarkLight]]"​ (Detecting A Resonance Kinematically with Leptons Incident on a Gaseous Hydrogen Target)? ​ Or the infamous "​[[https://​arxiv.org/​abs/​1712.07124|P...B...S...]]"​ (Polynomial... Basis... for... Substructure...,​ see footnote 10), which would likely best the competition at [[https://​www.cfa.harvard.edu/​~gpetitpas/​Links/​Astroacro.html|DOOFAAS]]? ​ I write down a sentence describing the idea, take the first letters of (most) of the words, and watch my collaborators cringe.
