2016 Spring Section Meeting Announcement

Dear Colleagues,


The 2016 meeting of the Idaho/Utah Section of the AAPT will be at ISU in Pocatello, Idaho, April 15 – 16.  Of all of the possible dates I proposed in emails to section members and others since October, this weekend had the fewest conflicts according to replies I received.

Please reserve this date and plan to attend, if convenient.  We will have our usual Friday evening demo show, which will be open to the public.  For Saturday we will have contributed talks, student posters, our annual section business meeting, a raffle, an optional tour of the Idaho Accelerator Center, and a leaf-blower hovercraft construction workshop.  Our meeting will be joint with a meeting of Zone 15 of the Society of Physics Students.


Additional details regarding registration, abstract submission, lodging, and a conference website will follow in the next few weeks.  If you are aware of any high school or college physics teacher who is not in recipient list for this email, or anyone else you think may have an interest in attending our meeting, please forward this to them and cc me.


Thank you for your time and consideration, and have a great semester.
