April Meeting 2012 - Future of Physics Days
Travel Grant Awards
Saturday, March 30
Sunday, March 31
Once again, APS is teaming up with SPS at the annual meetings to plan a number of special events just for Undergraduates!
April Meeting registration is free for undergraduate members of APS (including affiliate members with SPS membership). Registration will enable students to attend the entire meeting, not just the Future of Physics Days.
The Undergraduate Epitome is a special publication which highlights sessions which may be of particular interest to undergraduates--including all FPD events. The Epitome is available in both an online and pdf format. Browse through the recommended sessions before the meeting to get a sense which ones you would like to attend.
