The 19th Particles and Nuclei International Conference (PANIC11) will take place in Cambridge, Massachusetts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from Sunday July 24th through Friday July 29th 2011. The PANIC conference, which is held every three years, showcases the most significant developments in nuclear and particle physics to date.
PANIC11 will celebrate the centennial of Rutherford's discovery of the atomic nucleus by making this a major theme of the meeting. Additionally, 2011 is the 150th anniversary of MIT and local organizers expect this to be an exciting time to be on campus.
The location of PANIC11 allows visitors to experience the distinct character and charm of America's two most walkable cities. Cambridge, defined by its premier educational institutions, is a hip, multicultural place charged with an innovative and intellectual spirit that is easily captured in any local square or neighborhood cafe. Just across the Charles River is downtown Boston, where one can explore one of America's richest centers of history and culture by foot or sample renowned cuisine and enjoy both the urban and natural beauty of this harbor town.
