Four Corners APS Wrap Up

Crowd at the Four Corners event

The American Physical Society's 25th Anniversary annual Four Corners meeting was held Friday and Saturday, October 14 & 15, 2022 at UNM PAÍS.

According to UNM Physics and Astronomy Department Chair Richard Rand, the event was a "splendid success. By all reports it was an particularly well-run Four Corners meeting ... despite the large attendance of 272."

Several UNM faculty delivered presentations including plenary presentations by Keith Lidke, Diana Dragomir, and Andrew Landahl. Mousumi Roy, Francis-Yan Cyr-Racine, and Tara Drake also delivered invited talks on their research.
