Mile-High City Will Host 2007 March Meeting

The 2007 APS March Meeting will be held March 5-9 in Denver, Colorado. It is the largest annual gathering of professional physicists in the country.

The scientific program will feature more than 90 invited sessions and 550 contributed sessions, at which approximately 7000 papers will be presented, covering the latest research in areas represented by the APS divisions of condensed matter physics, materials physics, polymer physics, chemical physics, biological physics, fluid dynamics, laser science, computational physics, and atomic, molecular and optical physics.

Also taking part will be the APS topical groups on instrument and measurement science, magnetism and its applications, shock compression of condensed matter, statistical and nonlinear physics, and quantum information, as well as the forums on industrial and applied physics, physics and society, history of physics, international physics, education, and graduate student affairs.

Special scheduled events include the annual prize and award presentation, a one-day workshop on professional skills development for women physicists, a panel discussion with APS journal editors, a students lunch with the experts, a physics sing along, and a high school physics teachers’ day on Tuesday, March 6.

In addition to the regular technical program, on Sunday, March 4, there will be seven half-day tutorials on magnetism at the nanoscale, teaching statistical and thermal physics with computer-based tutorials, quantum error correction, spintronics, quantum turbulence, graphene, and attosecond science.

The 4th APS Workshop on Opportunities in Biological Physics, organized by the Division of Biological Physics, will be held on Sunday, March 4.

On Saturday, March 3 and Sunday, March 4, the Division of Polymer Physics will host a special short course on Advances in the Use of Atomic Force Microscopy for Studies of the Physics of Macromolecular Materials.

APS encourages the redistribution of the materials included in this newspaper provided that attribution to the source is noted and the materials are not truncated or changed.
