Public Release: 

Press registration open for 2016 APS March meeting in Baltimore, MD

Over 10,000 attendees will take part in the year's largest meeting of professional physicists

American Physical Society

The American Physical Society's 2016 March meeting will focus on some of the most dynamic and cutting-edge research areas in physics. Topics on tap include high-temperature superconductivity, biophysics, and advanced materials, as well as talks and sessions dedicated to social issues, medical technology, energy, and national security. The meeting takes place March 14 to 18 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland.

Registration is free for journalists. Contact James Riordon (riordon@aps.org, 301-209-3238) to register as press. Meeting details, including housing information and the complete meeting schedule, are available at: http://aps.org/meetings/march/index.cfm.

*Note: the deadline to reserve rooms at the discounted APS rate is February 13, although it's best to make reservations sooner to ensure that hotel space is available - http://www.aps.org/meetings/march/housing/index.cfm
