About

In honor of Paul Julienne’s 70th birthday we are arranging a meeting at the JQI on May 29 and 30, 2014. The meeting, called "Frontiers of Cold Matter'' is intended to be a gathering of people to celebrate Paul’s accomplishments and, as Paul is hardly being slowed by his “retirement,” to discuss current science as well.

The meeting will be held at the Joint Quantum Institute in the Computer Space Science (CSS) building on the University of Maryland campus. The talks will be open to all.
