It's a birthday party!

In 1999, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the American Physical Society. Physicists worldwide and especially APS members are invited to Atlanta next 20-26 March to celebrate the accomplishments of physics in the 20th century and to look ahead to the challenges and accelerating change that will greet us in the next 100 years and beyond. Now is the time to begin preparing your abstract and make plans for Atlanta. You won't want to miss it, and we hope you will consider bringing your spouse, companion or children along to enjoy the broad range of activities that will make up the APS Centennial celebration. This special issue of APS News will give an overview of the Centennial events in Atlanta and cover related projects and activities that will take place throughout 1999. All the information you need right now is in this issue and in the APS Meeting Announcements.
