Announcement of Bill Feldman Symposium, Postponed TBD

In April 2020, Bill Feldman is turning 80 years and his friends and colleagues would like to honor him with a symposium of talks covering the wide variety of scientific disciplines to which he has made significant contributions. These include: spaceflight instrument development; solar and magnetospheric physics; planetary nuclear spectroscopy; lunar, Mars, Mercury, and asteroid science; and fundamental physics (e.g., neutron lifetime).

Invited and contributed talks will include both a review of the contributions made by Bill and/or a discussion of the current state of the fields. All are invited to attend and participate in invigorating and enjoyable scientific discussions.

Los Alamos National Laboratory is hosting the symposium, which will take place in Los Alamos, NM at the Cottonwood on the Greens. A dinner/banquet will be held.

Please indicate your interest either in attending and/or giving a talk by sending a note to Sarah Balkey (slbalkey@lanl.gov), with copies to David Lawrence (David.J.Lawrence@jhuapl.edu) and Katherine Mesick (kmesick@lanl.gov).

Due to limited space, attendance will be on a first come, first served basis.
