david_grossFive prominent physicists from leading U.S. and European universities, including Nobel Lauerate Dr. David Gross, will explore the future of their discipline at "Frontiers in Physics," a daylong symposium presented by the Physics Department at The City College of New York (CCNY). The event, held on Friday, April 23, at The Harmonie Club in New York, will serve as the occasion for the conferral of an honorary doctorate on Sy Sternberg, ’65 EE, former chairman and chief executive officer of New York Life Insurance Co. The principal speakers, representing high-energy physics, condensed matter physics, quantum computing/quantum information, biophysics and astrophysics, will assess the state of their fields and near -term and mid-range prospects. "A seminar of this nature has never been done on the East Coast before," said Dr. V. Parameswaran Nair, professor and chair of physics at CCNY. This is a good time to take a big-picture look at where physics is headed." The five fields covered by the speakers are the focus of most current research within the discipline, he noted. CCNY’s Physics Department has ongoing research in each of these areas, and several professors have received international recognition for their work, Professor Nair added.More on this story.
