Event description

Meeting Announcement

The Fall 2024 Zone Meeting for SPS Zone 7 will be held on October 18-19, 2024, on the campus of Marietta College in conjunction with the Fall 2024 Meeting of the Eastern Great Lakes Section of the American Physical Society (EGLS APS) and Appalachian Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers.  The meeting will be locally hosted by the Marietta College SPS Chapter #4091. The overall theme of the EGLS APS meeting is "Physics at the Confluence: Bridging Theory, Computation, and Experiment" but contributions will be accepted on any topic related to physics or astronomy.  


Registration details will be announced via the meeting host's web site (link to be posted). There will be no cost for students to attend the meeting. However, to register for the EGLS APS meeting, students will need to set up a free APS account if they do not have one already. Note that free APS membership  is available for students who are first-time APS members (yes, it's really free!).

Presentations & Posters

Students are encouraged but not required to present a poster or oral presentation. Students who wish to present a poster or talk will need to submit an abstract (link to be posted). Awards will be given by EGLS APS for the best poster and oral presentation by undergraduate students. Students who are not presenting at the EGLS APS meeting do not need to be an APS or SPS member to participate in the SPS zone meeting activities (except for the banquet).  But, of course, we encourage all students to join SPS to take advantage of its great benefits!  

Student Travel Scholarships

A limited number of EGLS APS student travel scholarships will be available for undergraduate students traveling to the meeting from outside of the Marietta, Ohio, area to attend the meeting.  Travel scholarships will be limited to one per institution and will cover up to $100 in travel costs. Applicants are encouraged to team up with other meeting attendees for travel and lodging purposes and must register for the meeting to be eligible for a travel scholarship. Student travel applications will be available from the meeting host's web site (link to be posted).
