SUMMARY

The National Society of Black Physicists will be having the 2020 Conference on November 5-8, 2020, at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, NY. The theme for this year's conference is "Achieving the Vision: From First Priniciples to the Future". The NSBP conference is the largest academic meeting of minority physicists in the United States. The goal of the conference is to provide mentorship opportunities, increase participant access to recruiters, offer networking opportunities and inform the broader physics community on best practices that will be gleaned during and after the meeting. The Conference allows students to have close interactions with professional physicists and gain exposure to high-quality scientific researchers and presentations. In addition to being a meeting that promotes the persistence of underrepresented physics students in the academic workforce pipeline, the conference hosts many high-level research talks, provides opportunities for peer-to-peer interactions and allows students the opportunity for exposure to the scientific community.

The conference will consist of three days of educational sessions, exhibitions, and interactive networking opportunities, as well as, a student career fair and poster sessions on cutting edge issues related to current trends in physics and science.

This year NSBP has partnered with the Brookhaven National Laboratory, the Associated Universities Inc. (AUI) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) to help further extend the reach of our mission.

We hope you will join us as we "Achieve the Vision: From First Principles to the Future".
