General Information

The 54th Annual Meeting of the of the APS Division of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics will take place at the Spokane Convention Center in Spokane, Washington USA from June 5-9, 2023.  Details can be found on the DAMOP Meeting Page.

The meeting will have a hybrid format similar, but not identical, to last year. Please take time to familiarize yourself with the structure and requirements of the 2023 hybrid meeting.

Meeting Format

We are looking forward to an in-person meeting in Spokane, with all invited talks presented in person, but we are committed to providing viewing and presentation (oral and poster) options for remote attendees. Invited and focus sessions will be live-streamed with the possibility for virtual audiences to ask questions of the presenters. See below for more details of the format of each session. 

Invited and focus sessions

All talks in the Invited and Focus sessions will all be presented in person, and will be live-streamed via the virtual platform with the possibility for virtual audiences to ask questions of the presenters.  These sessions will be recorded and made available on-demand to all registered attendees.

Contributed oral sessions

Based on feedback from DAMOP 2022 meeting attendees we decided to separate in-person and virtual oral sessions in 2023. In-person contributed sessions will not be live-streamed to the virtual audience. The only way in-person contributed talks will be available to the virtual audience (and to all attendees) is by upload of pre-recorded talks to the virtual meeting platform before the meeting. 

A number of remote contributed sessions will be held live on the virtual platform, with opportunities for participants to interact with each other and ask questions after each talk. Any meeting participant can join into these sessions using the meeting’s virtual platform.  All virtual contributions will also be recorded and be available on-demand.

Contributed poster sessions 

There will be three in-person poster sessions, and one live poster session for virtual participants. All poster presenters will need to upload an electronic version of their poster for remote viewing. They will also have the option to upload a five-minute video explanation along with their poster. Posters and accompanying videos will be available to all registered participants on demand. 

Graduate Student Symposium 

The theme of this year’s Graduate Student Symposium is Outstanding Answers to Outstanding Questions. The symposium will be in-person only and take place all day on Monday, June 5. Students must register for the symposium in advance.  

Grant and Awards 

DAMOP has a limited number of caregiver grants (up to $500) and student participation awards (up to $600).
