Sorters mtg large Photo by Michael Lucibella

In early December, 170 physicists from all over the country descended on APS headquarters in College Park, MD, to perform the onerous but very important task of sorting the 8,303 contributed abstracts that were submitted to the 2013 March Meeting. In the photo, Wolfgang Losert (University of Maryland), Pupa Gilbert (University of Wisconsin) and Eric Hudson (Penn State University) line up their sessions at the meeting's legendary big board. The March Meeting will take place in Baltimore, March 18-22.
