DPF 2009 will be held in Detroit October 30, 2007

Posted by apetrov in Particle Physics, Physics, Science.

The 2009 meeting of the Division of Particles and Fields (DPF) of American Physical Society (APS) will be held on campus of Wayne State University in Detroit. How do I know that? Well, I am a Chair of the Local Organizing Committee. And Executive Committee of DPF has just accepted our proposal to host this meeting.

So, what kind of meeting is that? Well, this is the main event for the DPF, usually attended by about 500 physicists working in, well, field of particles and fields (and also strings). We are looking forward to hosting this meeting. Here is the Local Organizing Committee:

Alexey Petrov (WSU, co-Chair), Claude Pruneau (WSU), David Cinabro (WSU), Eizabeth H. Simmons (MSU), Gordon Kane (Michigan), Paul Karchin (WSU, co-Chair), Rene Bellwied (WSU), Robert Harr (WSU), R. Sekhar Chivukula (MSU), Sean Gavin (WSU), Sergei Voloshin (WSU)

Please consider attending this conference to hear first results from the LHC, new results from Fermilab and B-factories and recent advances in theory. If you want to dispel some of your stereotypes about Detroit, this would be great time to do so.
