FORUM ON EARLY CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Invited Speakers: Julia Gonski (Columbia Univ.), Sara Simon (Fermilab), and Midhat Farooq (APS)
"Physics Career Paths: Finding Success in Academia, Industry, and Beyond"
May 24, 1:00-2:00 PM
The forum will consist of an overview of career paths for physicists followed by time for questions from the participants.

VIRTUAL COCKTAIL HOUR, AWARDS CEREMONY, AND HISTORY OF PHENO

As is a Pheno tradition, we will have a social hour and awards ceremony after the parallel sessions on Tuesday, May 25 at 6:45 PM EDT.  Though we cannot share a drink together, we encourage you to join with your favorite beverage in hand! Award recipients will not be notified in advance, so make sure to join to learn if you won one! 

As a special treat, this year we will welcome Professor Vernon Barger from the University of Wisconsin - Madison to share with us the history and his reminiscences of the Phenomenology Symposia.

PHENO 2021 ORGANIZERS: Ayres Freitas, Joni George, Tao Han (chair), Adam Leibovich, Cédric Weiland, Benjamin Carlson, Brian Batell, Akshay Ghalsasi and Keping Xie.

PHENO 2021 PROGRAM ADVISORS: Vernon Barger, Lisa Everett, Kaoru Hagiwara, JoAnne Hewett, Tae Min Hong, Arthur Kosowsky, James Mueller, Vittorio Paolone, Tilman Plehn, Vladimir Savinov, Xerxes Tata, Andrew Zentner, and Dieter Zeppenfeld.
