I learned from Chanda Prescod-Weinstein* (an occasional commenter here) that it is time to register for the joint NSBP and NSHP (National Society of Black Physicists and National Society of Hispanic Physicists) conference. It’ll be in Washington DC, February 20th-24th. (Actually, it has been time to register, for some time, but I’m late to the party, as usual.)
Chanda’s been working on some of the organization, and she says on her blog (go there for more):
This year’s conference will feature a plenary on Cosmology and Quantum Gravity, organized by Chanda Prescod-Weinstein and starring Abhay Ashtekar (Penn State), Lenny Susskind (Stanford), and Meg Urry (Yale).
I’ve been invited to speak this year, and I’ve found some funds to help me travel there, so it looks like I’ll be coming. So if you’re going, perhaps I’ll see you there.
