Notre Dame physics graduate student Allison Reinsvold Hall was been selected to attend the annual Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, an opportunity for young researchers and Nobel laureates to inform and inspire each other.
The annual meetings are held on the island town of Lindau, on Lake Constance in southeastern Germany. They focus alternately on chemistry, physics, and physiology, and began in 1951 with a meeting of seven laureates and around 400 physicians. This year's weeklong meeting will focus on physics. Its attendees include 550 young researchers and 32 laureates from years ranging from 1973 to 2011. Laureates are invited to lecture and lead discussions on topics of their choosing, with themes ranging from the retrospective to the speculative.
