"Acheiving the Vision: From First Principles to the Future"
The National Society of Black Physicists will be having the 2020 Conference virtually on November 5-8, 2020. The theme for this year's conference is "Achieving the Vision: From First Principles to the Future". The NSBP conference is the largest academic meeting of minority physicists in the United States with expected attendance of nearly 400 scholars. 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. This year's NSBP Conference will be co-hosted by Brookhaven National Laboratory and funded provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to help further extend the reach of our mission.
This year we will offer a unique sponsorship package to reflect the adaptation of a virtual platform for our annual conference. Sponsors will be assigned booths within the exhibit hall of the virtual platform. Depending on your level of sponsorship, there are some exciting benefits. Our goal is to extend marketing, exposure and engagement between our community and sponsoring entities while allowing sponsors an opportunity to develop an extended relationship with NSBP. Sponsors will still have access to minority undergraduates, graduates, postdocs, and early and mid-career minority scientists for recruitment and exclusive networking. Conference sponsorship meaningfully supports diversity in science both in higher education and the overall scientific workforce.
We hope you will join us for the 2020 NSBP Conference.
