Actualization of the Internet of Things
This topical conference, organized by the Forum on Industrial and Applied Physics, was a great success. Fellow physicists, scientists, and engineers from across the technological spectrum participated in cross disciplinary conversations to better build the Internet of Things. Check out the conference page for more details on the conference.
Industry Day at the March Meeting 2017
In 2017 FIAP again organized Industry Day at the March Meeting. The main focus was on Wednesday, March 15 with additional satellite sessions on other days. There were technical talks, a panel discussion about entrepreneurship in physics, receptions, and many opportunities for networking. This was also a good place for students and early career physicists to learn about careers in industry and hear talks from industry leaders about their technical work.
Industry Mentoring for Physicists (IMPact) is a new mentoring program intended to connect graduate students and postdocs with physicists who work in industry. Over 400 mentors and mentees are participating, and many mentees have received invaluable information that will help them chart a course to successful careers.
To find out more about this program click on the IMPact logo above. Signing up as a mentor or a mentee is easy, and you must be an APS member to participate. Mentors, make an impact in someone’s life by signing up today. Mentees, learn more about career options regardless of what path you ultimately choose. Questions? Email IMPact@aps.org
