Industry executives, research managers, academics and science policy decision makers are invited to attend The Industrial Physics Forum on Nov. 6-8, 2005, at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) campus in Gaithersburg, Md. The forum is sponsored annually by the American Institute of Physics to keep participants current on the themes and issues affecting the physics community. This year's theme is Advancing Infrastructure for Innovation. The first day of the forum will focus on the latest research at NIST in areas such as public safety and security, nanotechnology, and biosystems and health, and will include laboratory tours. The second day will focus on policy issues and current trends affecting the physics industry, as well as a "Frontiers in Physics" session exploring hot topics such as quantum information and evolution.
