Michael Wood, PhD, chair and professor of physics, received the April Convening Award. The award is one of the many Fundamental Physics Innovation Awards that will aid him in organizing the Light Dark Matter @ Accelerators (LDMA) 2019 workshop, held this coming November in Fondazione Querini Stampalia, Venezia.
The awards, funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, stimulate ideas on innovative ways in which emerging technologies can be used to address pressing problems in fundamental physics beyond the standard model by bringing people together to collaborate on ideas and explore new cost-effective approaches.
The awards, which are bestowed multiple times per year, provide funding at three levels: Lectureship Awards ($2,000) for seminar presentations, Visitor Awards ($5,000-10,000) for longer collaborative interactions and Convening Awards ($25,000-75,000) to support small scientific meetings.
