March madness in Downtown San Antonio

This year, I, along with 9000 other physicists and some of the IOP Publishing team have descended on the City of San Antonio in Texas, home of the Alamo and the San Antonio Spurs for the APS March meeting.

All of us have travelled far and wide for one reason: physics. There are a number of great sessions presenting ground-breaking research from industry, universities, and major labs, and after the painstaking task of trying to resolve all of the conflict from my APS schedule there are still some days where I want to be in three places at once.

One of the first sessions I attended celebrated 50 years of Molecular Dynamics. The session took a retrospective look at the history of Molecular Dynamics and the father of the method, Aneesar Rahman, and the influence his work has had on the current research. Speaker Priya Vashishta also looked forward highlighting where the future may lead, including self-healing ceramic materials and the challenges exascale computing will have to overcome. 

As well as attending as many sessions as possible, I will also be at the IOP Publishing exhibition booth along with a number of my colleagues where you can learn more about all of our journals and products. Please come along to booth 220 once the exhibition opens on Tuesday morning, and learn more about what we offer our authors, referees and readers.
