Reviews of Modern Physics 90th Anniversary Symposium

This year’s APS March Meeting featured a special symposium in honor of the 90th anniversary of the founding of Reviews of Modern Physics (RMP).

Please also join the editors of RMP on Tuesday, April 16, in Denver at the APS April Meeting for a special plenary session with three distinguished speakers marking the 90th anniversary of the journal. Wim Leemans (Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory) will discuss laser-based particle accelerators, Elena Aprile (Columbia University) will give an update on the search for dark matter, and Andrea Ghez (University of California Los Angeles) will talk about physics at the center of the Milky Way. For more see the 90th Anniversary of the APS Reviews of Modern Physics webpage.
