The Physics Division and the University of Chicago, in coordination with the Schiffer family, will host a Symposium in honor of John Schiffer. John Schiffer’s career at Argonne spanned some 60+ years, during which he made outstanding and internationally acclaimed contributions to nuclear physics research. Through roles on advisory committees, both at the highest level nationally and internationally, he played a significant role in charting the path of nuclear physics research over the last half-century, exploring many varied topics in nuclear physics and beyond. In John’s spirit, the symposium is to be not just a retrospective but also forward-looking, exploring the future of nuclear science within John’s broad horizons.

The Symposium will be held in the Auditorium of the Physics Division (building 203) on July 10-11, 2023. A reception will be held at the Argonne Guest House on the evening of July 9, 2023.
