88th Annual Meeting of the APS Southeastern Section
November 18th - 20th, 2021
University Center Club
Florida State University

We are honored to welcome you November 18th - 20th, 2021 to Tallahassee, FL for the 88th Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Section of the American Physical Society (SESAPS). SESAPS 2021 is planned to be a full in-person meeting (barring circumstances) at the University Center Club at Florida State University, inside the Doak Campbell stadium. Established in 1937, the objective of SESAPS is the advancement and diffusion of knowledge of physics within the southeastern region of the United States, including the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia; the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico; and the US Virgin Islands. Graduate and undergraduate students are especially welcome and encouraged to attend and submit an abstract for presentation. Limited travel support is available. We will also have numerous exciting special sessions, including a session to promote discussion on diversity issues in physics.

The meeting includes plenary and parallel sessions covering a broad range of current topics in physics research, a student poster session, a graduate program fair, and the presentation of the annual SESAPS awards in teaching (Pegram), research (Beams), and service (Slack). Poster presenters will have the chance to compete for a prize. The meeting banquet will feature a keynote address aimed towards a general audience--stay tuned for the announcement of the speaker!

Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the SESAPS21 local organizing committee at sesaps21@physics.fsu.edu.

COVID measures during the conference

During the SESAPS conference we expect all participants to be masked. We plan to provide masks for whomever needs them, including additional masks so that all participants can change them out a few times during the day. We will arrange the seating such that participants can be adequately distanced from one another during the sessions. We will also have hand sanitizer stations and cleaning supplies, such as Lysol wipes, available throughout the venue during the conference. There will be an outside area next to the session rooms that can be used for coffee breaks, poster sessions, and other events for which social distancing is difficult.
