In August 2017, David Wineland announced that he had accepted a position at the University of Oregon and would be leaving NIST. One year later we will celebrate and honor his 42 years of distinguished service and accomplishments at NIST with a one-day symposium.
If you plan to attend the symposium, please register before July 29, 2018. Both current NIST employees and visitors should register. For visitors, registration is how we place you on the guest list for August 10.
Whether or not you will be able to attend the gathering, we invite you to contribute to a booklet that will be presented to Dave. It can include a thought, memory, picture, back-of-the-envelope calculation or anything else you would like to share. To help us in formatting the book please submit your contribution as an 8.5”x11” pdf document (you can include multiple pages) with margins at least 0.5” on all sides. Remember to include your name somewhere on those pages. If possible, pictures and handwritten material should be scanned to pdf before sending. Let us know if you have any questions or suggestions for this project and we are looking forward to your submissions. Send these to email@example.com. We hope to gather all the contributions by July 16th so that the book can be assembled and printed in time for the event.
Organizers: Jim Bergquist, John Bollinger, James Chou, Bob Drullinger, David Hume, Wayne Itano, Dietrich Leibfried, David Leibrandt, Daniel Slichter, Andrew Wilson, and the Time and Frequency Div.
