On April 20, students and faculty from over a dozen institutions in the New York metropolitan area are bringing together the best in local condensed matter physics for the Gotham-Metro Condensed Matter Meeting. Hosted by the New York Academy of Sciences, this biannual conference is a fantastic chance for faculty, postdocs, and students to share ideas and research with fellow physicists. The conference will include keynote lectures by distinguished speakers in both hard and soft condensed matter physics, student talks highlighting current research, and a poster session presenting research projects from diverse subfields.
This meeting will also feature a special 'fireside' chat with Don Monroe and Lydia Sohn, who will present an insiders' account of the Hendrik Schon affair and will discuss the ethical obligations of the various parties involved in the generation and publication of scientific research.
