This meeting is part of the promoted activities by the Forum on Graduate Student Affairs (FGSA) of the American Physical Society (APS), and by the Sociedad Mexicana de Física (SMF) and the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP).
The CAM 2003 is a joint meeting of the Canadian, American and Mexican Physical Societies focusing on graduate students' education. The aim of this event is to provide an outstanding opportunity for students to develop professional skills, learn a broad range of physics topics, and initiate interactions across geographical borders. Furthermore, it will foster communication and exchange of ideas among students of various backgrounds and interests.
This multidisciplinary meeting will center on reviews of scientific progress, trends in last century, and the scientific challenges in the XXI century. The invited talks are addressed primarily to graduate students and young researchers (postdocs), but will open to undergraduates as well.
