UI Student Selected To Attend Meeting Of Nobel Laureates

Timothy Dennis of the Philippines, a student in the University of Iowa Graduate College, has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) as one of 23 outstanding researchers to attend the 54th Lindau Meeting of Nobel Laureates and Students June 27 through July 2 in Lindau, Germany.

The DOE students and 35 other students, sponsored by the national Science Foundation and Oak Ridge Associated Laboratories, will represent the United States and join more than 500 other international students at the 2004 meeting, which will focus on physics. The annual meetings alternately focus on the disciplines of chemistry, physics, and physiology/medicine.

Participants will travel to Washington, D.C. June 25 for an orientation meeting at DOE headquarters, then travel to Germany for the 54th Lindau Meeting, preceded by a June 27 tour of Lindau, a historic medieval island city rich in western European culture and located at the common border of Austria, Germany and Switzerland. The meeting itself will feature informal discussions with and lectures by Nobel Laureates on physics topics of their own choosing. Additional information on the sessions will be available at: http://www.orau.gov/lindau2004.
