Far West Section
The Far West Section of the American Physical Society provides a platform to connect physicists in one of the most vibrant academic and industrial region of the USA. We promote interactions between state and private universities, colleges, government laboratories, and industry to advance and disseminate scientific knowledge.
The Annual Meetings offer a unique opportunity for scientists, teachers, and industrial scientists to network, be informed about activities and career choices for physicists. Presentations by young scientists are punctuated by plenary sessions with diverse topics such as Physics in Africa, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Dark Energy in the Universe, Science Communication, Writing for Physics Today, Biofuels, Comet Dust, or Solar Power. The 2007 Annual Meeting featured a California Nobel Laureate Symposium. High school teachers are encouraged to participate in Annual Meetings, and industrial physicists are invited to talk about their work.
