We all have an obligation to prevent further transmission of COVID-19. We are in this together, and each and every one of us plays an important role in furthering the health and safety of ourselves, our neighbors, and our loved ones.
As the meeting is held on campus, all participants must observe the following Florida State University guidelines:
- We expect everyone to wear a face covering or mask at all times when inside any FSU facility, even if you are vaccinated. This includes all of our students, faculty, staff, vendors, and visitors.
- We expect everyone to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, even if you’ve had COVID-19 in the past.
- We expect you to stay home when sick, self-quarantine, and get tested for COVID-19 no sooner than 24 hours after your symptoms begin.
- And finally, we expect you to continue to practice good hygiene habits such as washing your hands frequently.
We plan to provide masks for all participants, 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.
It is the policy of the American Physical Society (APS) that all participants, including attendees, vendors, APS staff, volunteers, and all other stakeholders at APS meetings will conduct themselves in a professional manner that is welcoming to all participants and free from any form of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. Participants will treat each other with respect and consideration to create a collegial, inclusive, and professional environment at APS Meetings. Creating a supportive environment to enable scientific discourse at APS meetings is the responsibility of all participants.
Participants will avoid any inappropriate actions or statements based on individual characteristics such as age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, nationality, political affiliation, ability status, educational background, or any other characteristic protected by law. Disruptive or harassing behavior of any kind will not be tolerated. Harassment includes but is not limited to inappropriate or intimidating behavior and language, unwelcome jokes or comments, unwanted touching or attention, offensive images, photography without permission, and stalking.
Violations of this code of conduct policy should be reported to meeting organizers, APS staff, or the APS Director of Meetings. Sanctions may range from verbal warning, to ejection from the meeting without refund, to notifying appropriate authorities. Retaliation for complaints of inappropriate conduct will not be tolerated. If a participant observes inappropriate comments or actions and personal intervention seems appropriate and safe, they should be considerate of all parties before intervening.
SESAPS 2021 will cover a wide range of Physics topics following topics including:
Applied Physics; Cosmology; Astrophysics; Gravitation; Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics; Biophysics and Medical Physics; Condensed Matter; Nanoscience; Low and Medium Energy Nuclear Physics; Particle Physics; Physics Education and Outreach; Atmospheric Sciences; Statistical and Nonlinear Physics; Instrumentation; Quantum Information and Computing; Diversity in Physics; Fundamental Symmetries
Presenting a poster allows you to communicate your research at a one-on-one level. The poster session starts on Thursday Nov. 18th at 6 pm and usually runs for about 1.5 hrs. Please visit https://www.aps.org/meetings/policies/tips-poster-pre.cfm for tips on designing a scientific poster.
The poster session area will be equipped with:
- Designated poster board (poster board size: 6 feet long and 7 feet tall). Your poster must fit within the boundaries of the poster boards. We suggest a poster size of about 33.11" x 46.81" (A0 size).
- Pushpins or similar mounting hardware
Be sure to check your poster board number. These are subject to change. Find up-to-date information in the online scientific program.

The conference venue at Doak Campbell Stadium is at the southwestern corner of the FSU campus. The campus has many nice green spaces and walking paths. There's even a statue of Dirac outside his namesake science library--the final years of his career were spent at FSU, apocryphally because his wife fell in love with the Tallahassee weather after their first visit.
