Carnegie Hosts 2011 SSAA Symposium

For the fourth year in a row, the annual SSAA Program Symposium was hosted by the Carnegie Institution of Washington at its historic administration building in downtown Washington, DC. The meeting was held from February 15-17 and drew participants from around the country. Individual grant recipients and center directors from the three divisions of the program (High Energy Density Physics, Low Energy Nuclear Science and Materials Properties Under Extreme Conditions) gave updates on center or group activities and progress. CDAC students presented 20 posters during the poster session on the first night of the symposium. CDAC Director Russell Hemley provided an overview of the program in his invited talk.
