American Physical Society regional conference

Arizona State University will host the regional conference of the American Physical Society Oct. 16 and 17. The conference, which includes six keynote talks, parallel sessions, student presenters and a career panel, will cover a wide variety of topics that focus on current research.
 
“This includes new materials discoveries which will lead to future technology, biophysics breakthroughs that can help us understand disease, particle physics which deepens our understanding of the way the universe works, as well as discoveries about how our planet and solar system works,” said local organizing chair Anna Zaniewski, an associate instructional professional at ASU’s Department of Physics.
 
Paul Scowen, an associate research professor at ASU’s Department of Physics, will deliver the keynote address at the banquet, discussing Hubble insights on stellar birth.
 
The conference will be a mix of plenary talks aimed at an audience with a general interest in physics and 20-minute parallel sessions from faculty and graduate students on more focused topics such as particle physics, materials, cosmology, industrial and applied physics.
 
“Above all, the conference is about building connections between members of a broad scientific community,” Zaniewski said.
Registration for the conference is now open and you may learn more about speakers, conference details, and CEU opportunities for high school teachers by visiting https://aps4c2015a.events.asu.edu/.
 
Major sponsors of the event include Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories, and AirProducts. Local sponsors include the ASU College of Letters & Sciences, the LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Physics, and the Department of Physics. Those wishing to present at the conference should submit their abstracts by September 11, 2015.
