Mid-Atlantic Section Annual Meeting

By Tomek Kott posted 10-06-2020 09:31

The Executive Committee of the APS Mid-Atlantic Section (MAS) is pleased to announce that the Section will hold its Annual Meeting, in a virtual format, on Friday December 4th to Sunday December 6th. For full details, please see this webpage on the MAS website.

Hosted by the Section and with the theme “Transforming Challenges into Opportunities,” the annual meeting is going fully virtual! All sessions will have live or taped video presentations by presenters and a chat function for attendees to ask questions. In most other respect, the Meeting will be run much like other APS meetings: with some parallel sessions and some focus sessions. We are asking for abstracts from all fields of physics; for a full list of sorting categories, please see the conference website.

We especially welcome contributions that address many of the challenges that confront the physics community today. Successful communities of physicists, such as MAS, are powered by the diverse opinions, skill sets and life experiences of their members. Prioritizing racial justice, gender parity, disability inclusion, LGBTI equality and inclusion of all forms of human diversity needs to be the “new normal” in the world of physics research and education that emerges from the COVID-19 crisis. It is clear that modern science, technology and innovative teaching can be leveraged to make significant strides toward this mission.
