Abstract:
EVENT: Scientists who study topics ranging from new strategies for addressing our nation's energy needs to subatomic interactions in physics to mysteries of the art world will present their work in three separate symposia at the world's largest scientific gathering, the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), February 12-16, 2009, Hyatt Regency Chicago.

Sustainable Energy, 'Perfect' Liquids, and Ancient Secrets at AAAS: Presentations of science from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National

Chicago, IL | Posted on February 2nd, 2009

SYMPOSIA:

Basic Research for Global Energy Security: A Call to Action
Friday, February 13, 2009, 8:30 - 11:30 a.m., Hyatt Regency, Grand F

A discussion of innovations in producing, converting, transmitting, storing, and using energy, and how basic research - particularly in the emerging field of nanoscience - is enabling advances in catalysis, superconductivity, artificial photosynthesis, and other areas. Speakers will demonstrate how these research directions align with a strategy outlined in a new DOE Office of Science report, "New Science for a Secure and Sustainable Energy Future." [www.bnl.gov/aaas09/files/pdf/SustainableEnergyFuture.pdf]

Moderated by James Misewich, Brookhaven National Laboratory, with:

Nathan Lewis, California Institute of Technology
Paul Alivisatos, University of California and Interim Director Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Yet-Ming Chiang, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
John Sarrao, Los Alamos National Laboratory
Vallampadugai Arunachalam, Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy
George Crabtree, Argonne National Laboratory
Michelle Buchanan, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (discussant)

Quest for the Perfect Liquid: Connecting Heavy Ions, String Theory, and Cold Atoms
Sunday, February 15, 2009, 10:30 a.m. - Noon, Hyatt Regency, Regency C

Experts from Brookhaven Lab's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), string theory, and atomic physics will explore exciting connections between their seemingly unrelated fields, including the surprise finding of similar physics at opposite extremes of temperature, and the use of string theory as a tool for understanding these phenomena.

Moderated by Peter Steinberg, Brookhaven National Laboratory, with:

Barbara Jacak, Stony Brook University
John E. Thomas, Duke University
Clifford Johnson, University of Southern California
Glennda Chui, Symmetry Magazine (discussant)
William A. Zajc, Columbia University (discussant)

Casting New Light on Ancient Secrets
Monday, February 16, 2009, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m., Hyatt Regency, Grand C North

The fascinating secrets of our ancient world are being uncovered with the assistance of state of the art, non-destructive x-ray techniques. This symposium presents an insight into the capabilities of the many light source research facilities located around the world in relation to archaeology, paleontology, and anthropology.

Moderated by Murray Gibson, Argonne National Laboratory, with:

Ernest Fontes, Cornell University
Uwe Bergmann, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Francesca Casadio, The Art Institute of Chicago
Paul Tafforeau, European Synchrotron Radiation Facility
Jen Hiller, Diamond Light Source
Peter Siddons, Brookhaven National Laboratory

Details:www.bnl.gov/aaas09/newLight.asp
