Statistical Physics Berkeley Phy
Held annually during the second full weekend of January, this conference brings together researchers from diverse areas of chemistry, physics, biology, and beyond, with statistical mechanics as a common theme. Lecture and poster sessions are spirited and interactive, drawing over 100 participants every year.
The Physics Frontiers Centers (PFC) program supports university-based centers and institutes where the collective efforts of a larger group of individuals can enable transformational advances in the most promising research areas. The program is designed to foster major breakthroughs at the intellectual frontiers of physics by providing needed resources such as combinations of talents, skills, disciplines, and/or specialized infrastructure, not usually available to individual investigators or small groups, in an environment in which the collective efforts of the larger group can be shown to be seminal to promoting significant progress in the science and the education of students. PFCs also include creative, substantive activities aimed at enhancing education, broadening participation of traditionally underrepresented groups, and outreach to the scientific community and general public.
This University of Rochester based center brings together a diverse team, spanning disciplines from plasma physics, condensed matter, and atomic physics, to astrophysics and planetary science to study matter under extreme conditions and address critical gaps in our understanding of most of the atomic and chemical constituents of the Universe. CMAP's research, education and outreach programs aim to bring a new understanding of the universe to the public and inspire and engage a new generation of scientists of all ages and backgrounds.
CPBF, a joint effort between The Graduate Center at CUNY and Princeton University, works at the interface of physics and biology with the goal of developing a physics of biological function that connects the myriad details of life, across all scales, to fundamental and universal physical principles. CPBF focuses on new scientific opportunities and educational programs, integrating theory and experiment, research and education.
Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP) Rice UniversityCTBP will craft a theoretical physics framework for cells and groups of cells. To do this, the Center will combine statistical physics with biological information such as how living systems organize themselves. It will interact with local medical institutions, the University of Houston and surrounding communities, where it will serve as a focal point for theoretical biological physics. By hosting a visiting scholars program, running workshops, and coordinating student networks, CTBP will share its expertise with the biological physics community and help encourage greater participation in this research area.
Center for Ultracold Atoms (CUA) Massachusetts Institute of Technology CUA studies strongly interacting systems to better understand and ultimately control the quantum world. At the intersection of atomic, molecular, and optical physics and nanoscience, the PFC's research focuses on investigating many-body systems and strongly correlated states as well as exploring quantum coherent control of few-body systems. CUA offers a wide range of education and outreach activities for all levels, including a program focused on future high school teachers and an intensive summer course in atomic physics open to students and researchers worldwide.
Institute for Quantum Information and Matter (IQIM) California Institute of Technology The central goal of IQIM is to explore phenomena that can arise in highly entangled quantum systems using a multidisciplinary approach featuring quantum physics, condensed matter physics, atomic, molecular, and optical physics, and computer science. IQIM accomplishes this through both table-top experiments and theoretical investigations of quantum matter and interactin
