Students attending the meeting will have the opportunity to participate in a discussion with an expert on a topic of interest. Each expert will host an informal discussion over a complimentary lunch. The luncheon will begin promptly at 12:50 in Seaview AB, Hyatt. Interested students should sign up for the luncheon by emailing Professor Veronica Eliasson (, and make sure to include “APS 2010 Student Luncheon” in the subject line. The event is free, but each table/topic is limited to 8 students on a first-come, first-served basis. The experts and their topics of discussion are as follows:
