Saturday, March 12 - Sunday, March 13, 2016

Who Will Attend?
U.S. and Brazilian postdocs or early career physicists who are in permanent staff positions (physicists who have completed their Ph.D. no more than 10 years ago)

Overview
The U.S.-Brazil Young Physicists Forum is specifically dedicated to early career physicists who are working in the United States and Brazil in the scientific disciplines of the APS March Meeting, and is especially focused on helping attendees build international and interdisciplinary networks. YPF will combine scientific sessions with career development and networking opportunities to provide participants with:

  • Networking, scientific presentations, and social events with leading Brazilian and American physicists working in academia and industry
  • Career development sessions on publishing in peer reviewed journals
  • Panel discussions on university-industry cooperation
  • Scientific parallel sessions and poster sessions with international peers
  • Opportunities for building international and interdisciplinary collaborations

 

Program

Senior physicists will present plenary talks, followed by parallel sessions with American and Brazilian participants presenting to each other. In addition, a poster session/networking reception will allow participants to discuss their research with not only their international peers, but also with leading physicists working in industry and academia along with distinguished VIPs from SBF, FAPESP, and APS. Throughout YPF, participants will discuss their work and connect with potential partners, leaders, and colleagues in a smaller, more intimate setting than the larger March Meeting will allow. All participants will be expected to participate scientifically, either through presenting their research during a parallel session, or presenting a poster during the poster session/networking event.

2017 APS President Laura Greene will provide a session on ?Publishing in Peer-Reviewed Journals,? a session that she has given to international audiences of young scientists around the globe. In addition to the scientific presentations and poster session, panel discussions on professional development and university-industry cooperation will be tailored to the interests of both American and Brazilian early career scientists.
