[en] From 20-24 July, Hamburg welcomed the Fifteenth International Conference on High Energy Accelerators (HEACC). The HEACC Conference traditionally reviews the status of all major accelerator projects whether they are already running like clockwork, still in the construction phase, or waiting impatiently for financial approval
[en] A Regional Meeting on Fundamental Physics organized at the CIF International Physics Centre in Bogota, Colombia, in April, looked at future international collaboration possibilities for physicists from the South American Andean region in general, and from Colombia in particular
[en] The 1500 physicists from Europe, the United States, the Pacific Rim, and the former Soviet Union who gathered in Minneapolis from 7 to 11 November had many messages but one medium: plasmas. As the presentations at the meeting of the American Physical Society's division of plasma physics showed, the windows that laboratory plasmas can provide into space, turbulent liquids, and matter-antimatter interactions are opening wider than ever
[en] I am pleased to speak at the Fortieth Gordon Conference on Nuclear Chemistry. I served as Chairman of the first Gordon Conference on Nuclear Chemistry held June 23--27, 1952, at New Hampton, New Hampshire. In my remarks, during which I shall quote from my journal, I shall describe some of the background leading up to the first Gordon Conference on Nuclear Chemistry and my attendance at the first seven Gordon Conferences during the period 1952 through 1958. I shall also quote my description of my appearance as the featured speaker at the Silver Anniversary of the Gordon Research Conferences on December 27, 1956 held at the Commodore Hotel in New York City. I shall begin with reference to my participation in the predecessor to the Gordon Conferences, the Gibson Island Research Conferences 45 years ago, on Thursday, June 20, 1946, as a speaker. This was 15 years after the start of these conferences in 1931. Neil Gordon played a leading role in these conferences, which were named (in 1948) in his honor -- the Gordon Research Conferences -- soon after they were moved to Colby Junior College, New London, New Hampshire in 1947. W. George Parks became Director in 1947, Alexander Cruickshank became Assistant Director in 1947 and Director in 1968
[en] Future accelerators is what ICFA (the International Committee for Future Accelerators) is all about Following an emergency ICFA meeting at CERN early in December, the following statement was drafted for a subsequent meeting of ICFA Members and Laboratory Directors at the TRIUMF Laboratory, Vancouver, on 16 January. High energy physics seeks to discover basic principles that underlie the workings of the physical universe through the exploration of the building blocks of matter and forces among them. World-wide effort over the past half-century has produced a remarkably successful theoretical picture describing all matter and energy as built of certain constituents, interacting through specific forces according to general principles of symmetry, relativity and quantum mechanics.
