APS EGLS Fall Meeting 2023
October 20-21, 2023
Cleveland State University, Cleveland, OH, USA
On Friday, October 20, and Saturday, October 21, 2023, the Department of Physics at Cleveland State University hosted the 2023 American Physical Society (APS) Eastern Great Lakes Section (EGLS) Fall Meeting. This event, organized by Drs. Ulrich Zurcher and Sebastian Sensale Rodriguez, attracted over 150 participants, featured over 100 posters and contributed talks from undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty, marking a level of engagement not seen since pre-COVID times.
Under the theme "Physics at the Nanoscale," the event featured invited speakers from academia (Dr. Fangwei Si from Carnegie Mellon University, Dr. Divita Mathur from Case Western Reserve University, Dr. Graham Dixon from Ohio State University, and Dr. Rose Cersonsky from University of Wisconsin – Madison) as well as industry (Dr. Lisa Felter from Newry Corp), bringing a diverse range of expertise to the Cleveland area.
We would like to acknowledge the high level of enthusiasm displayed by the undergraduate and graduate student researchers who actively participated in activities organized by both the APS EGLS and the local CSU chapter of the Society of Physics Students (SPS). In fact, the SPS chapter organized a Zone 7 SPS meeting which was run in parallel with the APS EGLS and brought 52 undergraduates from 11 different universities/colleges from Ohio and Michigan.
Please save the date for the Spring 2024 APS EGLS meeting, which will be held April 12-13 at Kettering University in Flint, MI. We look forward to seeing you there and at the upcoming APS March Meeting 2024 in Minneapolis, MN!
