The 2011 JLab User's Group Annual Meeting will take place on Monday, June 6 through Wednesday, June 8, 2011. The program includes a variety of physics talks, presentations from the User Group Board, laboratory management, funding agencies and talks from our Prize Winners.
Your participation is important, and we strongly urge everyone to register, and make plans to attend. We particularly encourage graduate students to attend the annual meeting. The Jefferson Science Associates Initiatives Fund has again sponsored our waiving student registration fees. We will again have special lunch discussions for the graduate students where free food is available. The poster competition continues, with a first prize of $1000, a 2nd prize of $500, and a third prize of $250. The deadline for poster competition abstracts is Friday, May 27, 2011 - and you cannot win if you do not enter. For more information, contact Sucheta Jawalkar (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please come and find out more about the plans of DOE, NSF, and the laboratory in the coming years. The discussion will include both near- and long-term plans, and a variety of issues. The Annual User Group Meeting plays a central role in maintaining the coherence and effectiveness of our community. Your User Group Board is working hard to put together a good meeting, and we very much hope to see you there!
