Meetings

ALPhA organizes periodic conferences dedicated to advanced physics laboratory instruction. These conferences bring together laboratory instructors and commercial equipment vendors to share effective lab curricula, teaching methods, and experiments. Each conference includes speakers, small-group hands-on laboratory workshops, poster sessions, and time for discussion and networking.
