Second annual workshop of the Group on Precision Measurements and Fundamental Constants
January 27, 2017
"Ultralight dark matter" is a one-day workshop organized by the APS Topical Group on Precision Measurements and Fundamental Constants (GPMFC). It will take place in Washington, DC on January 27, 2017 – the day before the APS April meeting begins. It will be held at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, the site of April Meeting 2017. The workshop on Friday will be complemented by a GPMFC invited session at the APS April meeting on the same subject on Saturday morning.
The goal of the workshop is to survey forefront efforts in searches for ultralight dark matter. The audience will consist of senior researchers, postdocs, and students who are using a wide variety of tools for the search for ultralight dark matter.

APS April meeting online registration deadline: January 6, 2017
(1) If you are attending APS April 2017 meeting, register for the Friday workshop when you are registering for the April meeting at http://www.aps.org/meetings/april/registration/index.cfm. Check the “GPMFC WORKSHOP: Ultralight Dark Matter” box on the registration form.
To encourage and support the student attendance of the workshop, the student registration fee is only $25 – there is a separate box for the student workshop registration.
Note that April meeting has an option to attend for one day, this will include Saturday morning session.
(2) If you are not attending April meeting, fill in the April meeting form http://www.aps.org/meetings/april/registration/upload/APSAprilMeeting2017Registration.pdf only for the workshop registration and e-mail to Don Wise at APS at email@example.com with a subject line “Registration for the GPMFC workshop” or fax to (301) 209-3652 (address the fax to Don Wise). He will register you. This cannot be done via online registration.
Posters are highly encouraged!
The workshop will include a poster session. To submit a poster, e-mail you name, affiliation, and a title of your poster to firstname.lastname@example.org. Number of posters at the poster session is limited due to the space constraints so e-mail your poster title as soon as possible. If you are giving a talk/poster at the April meeting relevant to the subject of the workshop, you may still submit poster on the same subject at the workshop.
If you have any questions about the workshop e-mail Marianna Safronova at email@example.com.
