Chair- APS
Activities and Goals
I assumed the role of Chair of the APS commitee as of May 30, 2010 at the conclusion of the 2010 APS Convention. Deidra Schleicher was the former Chair.
I attended the 2010 APS convention in Boston, MA from May 27 until May 30. During this conference, I chaired the two symposia that I organized and also presented in the second one (listed below). The attendance at these symposia ranged from 30-65 individuals. I attended the planning meeting for the 2011 APS conference on May 30, 2010 from Noon to 5pm.

I am working on the invited program of the I/O Track for the 2011 APS convention in Washington, DC. At the moment I am considering several different themes for the I/O track and aim to decide on a theme within the next month. I will then begin to invite individuals to deliver either an address or talk or to participate in a symposium. I aim to include a balance of these three program types. 
In addition to the invited sessions for the I/O Track, I am working with Ellen Hamaker (Chair of the Methodology Track) on a Theme Program around Connectedness. The APS Program Committee discussed several ideas for separate Theme Programs (outside the specific Tracks). We have started to communicate around potential speakers for the theme program and will continue this dialogue over the next several weeks.
