American Physical Society California-Nevada Section2011 Annual Meeting
November 11-12, 2011SLAC, Menlo Park, CA
The 2011 Annual Meeting of the APS California-Nevada Section will take place at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory on Friday and Saturday, November 11th and 12th 2011.
SLAC is the home of the world’s first hard X-ray free electron laser, the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) as well as the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL). One of the plenary talks presented by Joachim Stohr (SLAC) will describe the fascinating scientific opportunities with LCLS. The other plenary talks will describe state of the art projects, where scientists from the section play an integral part. Steve Ritz (UCSC) will give recent results from the Fermi Space Telescope whose main instrument was built at SLAC. Natalie Batalha (SJSU) will describe the Kepler mission to search for planets outside the solar system, which is hosted at NASA-Ames. Alessandra Lanzara (UCB) will speak on recent developments in the area of superconductors. In addition, Nobel Laureate Burton Richter (SLAC) will speak on “Energy Policy Today” after the conference dinner.
Several items on the program agenda are of particular interest to young scientists. Given SLAC’s location in the heart of Silicon Valley, the career panel will discuss “How to Start Working for a Startup Company”. There will also be a student lunch with experts on Friday and tours of the SLAC facilities will be offered on Saturday afternoon. We welcome you to a productive and exciting meeting.
