2015 Joint Fall Meeting of the APS and AAPT New England Sections

November 6-7, 2015
Dartmouth College
Hanover, NH

Topic: Frontiers in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Exoplanetary Astronomy

Keynote Address: Prof. Frank Wilczek (MIT)

The conference will focus on open questions and challenges in high-energy particle physics, cosmology, and the search for exoplanets. With new data coming from the LHC and the many active searches for dark matter across the globe, particle physics is poised for an exciting few years, as the Standard Model gets tested as never before. At the same time, precision cosmology is going through a golden age, as more data about the early and current universe pours in at an accelerated pace, testing current ideas and placing stringent constraints on many models of early universe physics. On a different track, exoplanetary astronomy is also going through a golden age, as more planets are found at increasing rates, some with promising Earth-like features. The 2015 New England APS meeting will gather some of the leading scientists working on these various topics, to inform and inspire current and future research.
