Introduction and Deadline for Registration and Abstracts
The APS Ohio Section Meeting will be held Friday and Saturday, October 17-18, 2003, at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Registration and Abstract Submission have the same deadline of September 19, 2003.
About the Program and Registration
The general theme of the plenary talks is "Physicists Get Down to Business." Parallel sessions of contributed papers, however, are unrestricted in subject matter. The meeting is co-sponsored by the AAPT Ohio Section, with the co-theme of "No Physics Teacher Left Behind."
With respect to the industrial physics theme, the meeting emphasizes participation by physicists in industry as well as academia and government laboratories, especially from institutions located in the Ohio, Michigan and surrounding areas. Plenary talks on the physics and business of entrepreneurship are to be presented on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. The Friday afternoon poster session and the Saturday morning parallel sessions (which consist of ten-minute contributed papers) are open to all APS and AAPT attendants, with special encouragement extended to graduate and undergraduate student participants. At least one parallel session will include papers on industrial and clinical imaging.
With respect to the physics teacher co-theme, the meeting has Saturday education workshops, and the familiar "how I do it" session. "The Art of Changing the Brain" and "The Fantastic Physics of Comic Book Superheroes" are the respective subjects of the Friday evening after-dinner and the Saturday afternoon after-lunch speakers. Up-to-date details on the program is available at program.
For a description of registration and meal costs and a registration form (that can be downloaded and mailed in) see housing. NOTE THAT THE OS/AAPT MEMBERS SHOULD NOT REGISTER WITH THIS FORM. They will receive a separate registration package through their normal OS/AAPT sectional meeting procedures.
Contributed papers dealing with all areas of physics education and original research were solicited from both APS and AAPT members, for both oral and poster sessions. The accepted abstracts for the poster and oral contributions can now be found at http://www.aps.org/meet/OSF03/baps. The receipt deadline for all submitted abstracts was September 23, 2003 by 5:00 PM EDT.
