December 2021 Janet Das Sarma Memorial Conference
We are pleased to announce the 2021 Janet Das Sarma Memorial CMTC Conference, a scientific conference in memory of Janet Das Sarma, who played a crucial behind-the scene role in making the Condensed Matter Theory Center at the University of Maryland (www.physics.umd.edu/cmtc/) a success and profoundly affected all aspects of the center. Janet was the only administrative assistant CMTC ever had, until her death on December 2, 2019 (http://umdphysics.umd.edu/about-us/news/department-news/1532-janet-dassarma-1971-2019.hml)
This one-day conference will be held at The Hotel at UMD on December 18, 2021, and will include 9 scientific talks covering frontier areas of Condensed Matter physics that have been the center of activity at CMTC delivered by scientists who knew Janet the longest. The talks will be followed by a dinner and formal remembrances of Janet by the attendees, celebrating her role in the success of CMTC. The plan is for attendees to arrive on Friday, December 17 and depart on Sunday, December 19.
Space is limited, so please contact Rebecca Cawthorne at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending. All local expenses (hotel, food, coffee breaks, etc.) will be covered by CMTC. For those who want to spend a few extra days at CMTC doing physics, the appropriate office space will be made available.
