1pm Gianfranco Vidali, Syracuse University Cosmic Low Temperature Physics: Making Molecules on Stardust Over 180 different molecular species have been detected in the Interstellar Medium. Although many of the molecules form in the gas-phase, there are some that are formed on surfaces of dust grains. Among these, molecular hydrogen and water are perhaps the most important ones because of their role in astrophysics (star formation) and astrochemistry/astrobiology. In the last decade, advances in observations via space telescopes and in laboratory techniques have led to great progress in characterizing the Molecular Universe. After an introduction about molecules and dust in the Interstellar Medium, I’ll present examples of how laboratory work and theoretical simulations have enabled us to understand how molecules form on stardust and how they influence the chemical evolution of the cosmos. Furthermore, I will show how specific knowledge acquired in the laboratory is guiding observations of actual processes in space. Lunch at 12:30 pm

1pm Tim Andeen The ATLAS Experiment, from Nevis to CERN Columbia University has a large team of scientists working on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Scientists from Nevis have been involved in every aspect of the experiment. Significant components of ATLAS were developed and built at Nevis and work continues upgrading the detector. The latest searches for physics beyond the Standard Model will be discussed as we look forward to even higher energy collisions in 2015 and beyond. Lunch at 12:30 pm
