Sorters for abstracts submitted to the 2012 APS March Meeting in Boston met at APS headquarters in College Park on December 3 and 4. The 158 sorters tackled a record 8,960 abstracts, for an astonishing A/S ratio of 56.7. In the photo, Steve Hudson of NIST, Andrey Dobrynin of the University of Connecticut and Megan Robertson of the University of Houston debate a fine point of the sorter's art.
