Student Luncheon


Contact: Professor James Wallace (e-mail:
Time: Monday, 21 November, 12:50 - 13:50
Location: Constellation Ballroom A, Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor Hotel

Supported by JHU

Students attending the meeting will have the opportunity to participate in a discussion with an expert on a topic of interest. Each expert will host an informal discussion over a complimentary lunch. The luncheon will begin promptly at 12:50 in Constellation Ballroom A, Hyatt Regency Inner Harbor Hotel. Interested students should sign up for the luncheon by emailing Professor James Wallace (e-mail:, and make sure to include “APS 2011 Student Luncheon” in the subject line. The event is free, but each table/topic is limited to 8 students on a first-come, first-served basis. The experts and their topics of discussion are as follows:
