Tampa To Host 2005 April Meeting

The 2005 APS April Meeting will be held in Tampa, Florida, April 16-19. Approximately 1500 physicists are expected to attend. The meeting will also serve as the divisional meeting of the Division of Particles and Fields (DPF).

The scientific program, which focuses on astrophysics, particle physics, nuclear physics, and related fields, will consist of three plenary sessions, approximately 75 invited sessions, more than 100 contributed sessions, and poster sessions.

Besides DPF, APS units represented at the meeting include the Divisions of Astrophysics, Nuclear Physics, Physics of Beams, Plasma Physics, and Computational Physics; the Forums on Education, Physics and Society, International Affairs, History of Physics, and Graduate Student Affairs; and the Topical Groups on Few-Body Systems, Precision Measurement and Fundamental Constants, Gravitation, Plasma Astrophysics, and Hadronic Physics.

Nine plenary talks are scheduled on a broad range of topics including rare isotopes and thermonuclear explosions in the crust of an accreting neutron star, the collision between research and teaching, fundamental science and nanostructures, probing subatomic matter with polarized electrons, mysteries of heavy quarks, envisioning particles and fields, probing supernova remnants, black holes and dark matter with TeV gamma rays, the standard model of cosmology: successes and challenges, and the black hole information paradox.

Other special events include a high school physics teachers' day, a meet the editors of Physical Review session, and receptions for students and minorities, women, and industrial physicists. More information about the APS April Meeting.
