The 2006 joint
spring meeting of the New England sections of the APS and AAPT will
be held Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1, 2006 at Boston University.
The theme for this year's meeting will be Physics and Cosmology:
at the Interface with an invited session of prominent scientists
discussing their research in talks aimed at a general physics audience.
This year's meeting will also feature a new teacher workshop, a graduate
teaching fellow workshop, and a physics demo show.
A showcase of physics demonstrations will be held Saturday morning. This program will be spearheaded by the demo team from Boston University, but we are seeking individuals from other institutions to show off their favorite demonstrations. Interested parties should contact Andrew Duffy (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A new workshop for graduate teaching fellows is being planned for Saturday afternoon.
The deadline for the receipt is abstracts is March 17, 2006. Those wishing to make an APS contributed talk, please submit your abstract at http://www.aps.org/meet/abstracts/index.cfm. Those wishing to make an AAPT contributed talk should send their abstracts to email@example.com.
