Plenary Presenation

The plenary session for this year’s meeting will feature Professor Adam Holley from the Department of Physics at Tennessee Technological University. Dr. Holley received his Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics from North Carolina State University and studies very low energy “ultracold” neutrons and their potential for helping explain what we observe about the universe. His talk is titled “The Tortoise and the Hare: A Race for Answers to Big Questions About the Universe.”

Annual Meeting Overnight Accommodations

Several hotels offer a government rate of $96/night contingent on availability, including but not limited to the Fairfield Inn and Suites and the Hampton Inn.

We contacted two hotels: Fairfield Inn and Suites (1200 Sams St, Cookeville, TN 38506) and the Hampton Inn (1025 Interstate Dr, Cookeville, TN 38501). Both had ample space, took the government rate, and were not concerned about filling up that weekend.
