Last week’s issue of NewsLine announced a wrong date for the “Informal Discussion” to take place in conjunction with the French Linear Collider days. The meeting will take place on Friday, 29 November from 14:00 to 18:00 h at LAL Orsay. A special Indico page has been set up for this event.
Barry Barish | 19 April 2012Most of us belong to a professional society that serves many of our professional needs throughout our career as practicing scientists. I have belonged to the American Physical Society since I was a graduate student in Berkeley, and last year I had the privilege of serving as APS President for 2011. It has become customary for each outgoing President to summarise his or her presidential year for APS, and I repeat my summary in order to give a picture of the activities of such a professional society.
