Industry Day at the March Meeting 2020, Denver, CO
Industry Day: New Ways of Seeing

Industry Day 2020 banner

If you are fascinated by industrial and applied physics, join us for Industry Day at the APS March Meeting.

This year's theme, "New Ways of Seeing," will showcase the diverse activities of physicists who have chosen non-academic careers. Come explore new methods for gathering information about the world, advances in how we organize and utilize data, frontiers in energy, and innovations that impact technologies from self-driving cars to aerospace.

Speakers from a wide range of technical fields will share their experiences, including how training in physics prepared them for the jobs they have now. Meet new colleagues and expand your view of the exciting work undertaken by physicists in many different industrial fields.
