Jefferson Lab, Newport News, VA
The 2011 JLab Users Group Annual Meeting will take place on June 6-8, 2011 at Jefferson Lab. The program includes a variety of physics talks, presentations from the Users Group Board, laboratory management, funding agencies, talks from our new APS fellows and Prize winners among them the inaugural JSA Outstanding Nuclear Physicist Award winner.
Your participation is important, and we strongly urge everyone to register now, and make plans to attend. We particularly encourage graduate students to attend the annual meeting. The Jefferson Science Associates Initiatives Fund has again sponsored our waiving student registration fees. We will again have special lunch discussions for the graduate students where free food is available. The poster competition continues, with a first prize of $1000, a 2nd prize of $500, and a third prize of $250. The deadline for poster competition abstracts is Wednesday, May 25, 2011 - and you cannot win if you do not enter. For more information, contact Sucheta Jawalkar (firstname.lastname@example.org).
On the afternoon of Wednesday, June 8, there will be a Symposium in honor of Larry Cardman's contribution to nuclear physics. Details can be found at http://conferences.jlab.org/ugm/symposium.html.
Please come and find out more about the plans of DOE, NSF, and the laboratory in the coming years and to honor Larry's contribution to the field. The discussion will include both near- and long-term plans, and a variety of issues. The Annual Users Group Meeting plays a central role in maintaining the coherence and effectiveness of our community. Your Users Group Board is working hard to put together a good meeting, and we very much hope to see you there!
