The Fall 2014 Meeting of the New England Section of the American Physical Society

Over the past few years physics has been pushing the frontiers of extremes,  from the extreme power of the LHC, the extreme searches for dark matter and dark energy, extremely low temperature superconductors and extreme cold atoms.  Physicists from large collaborations at the most extreme facilities to the extreme growth in undergraduate research at colleges and universities of all sizes have been testing, expanding and developing the most extreme theories ever dreamed.  This APS regional meeting will address physics of the extremes and will provide a diverse range of topics featuring invited talks, contributed sessions, a poster session and a session dedicated to undergraduate research.

The Fall 2014 Meeting of the New England Section of the American Physical Society will be held at Wentworth Institute of Technology beginning on Friday November 7th 2014 with a 12:00pm registration and Meet and Greet. A 2:00pm welcome address will be followed by plenary invited talks, followed by a conference banquet at 5:30pm. Our featured speaker, will be announced soon!  The full program once established will be announced on the website above.

Saturday November 8th will include light refreshments beginning at 8:00am leading into parallel seminar sessions until 11:30am.  An optional lunch on Saturday will be provided  at 12:00pm, followed by a featured session on Undergraduate research in New England!
