Day two beckons

It’s day two of the March meeting and after cutting my teeth yesterday on some lighter material it’s time to get stuck into some serious physics. The first thing on the agenda is graphene. There are at least a half a dozen sessions on graphene this year, not bad for a material that’s only been around for a few years. Also on my list are a couple talks on spintronics. For some light relief I’ll be popping into a session on nuclear weapons.

The meeting got off to a slow start yesterday and before noon I was wondering where everyone was. But by the end of the day I could easily believe that I was surrounded by 7000 physicists. There will be a total of 6500 talks at the meeting and just over 100 companies are represented at the exhibition.

For the most part, the Colorado Convention Center is easy to navigate and it takes no longer than about five minutes to get from one meeting room to another.

But I don’t think I would be very pleased if I was an exhibitor. The exhibition hall is a good distance from the meeting rooms and areas where delegates tend to congregate. I mentioned this to the folks on our booth, but so far they seem pleased with the traffic they are getting.
