ALPhA, the Advanced Laboratory Physics Association, will hold the Third Conference on Laboratory Instruction Beyond the First Year (BFY III)  at  Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore, MD, Wednesday, July 25 - Friday, July 27, 2018.

Conference overview:

The 2.5 day conference brings together faculty, technical staff, and vendors involved with intermediate and advanced undergraduate laboratories to share effective lab curricula, teaching methods, and experiments. This is a workshop-intensive conference during which participants will rotate through twelve 40 minute small-group workshops led by commercial vendors and by laboratory instructors and developers.  This setup provide an unusual and excellent opportunity for hands-on experience with a broad selection of contemporary instructional labs. The conference also includes invited speakers and breakout and networking sessions.  Meeting participants are encouraged to present information about their own courses and/or experiments in two contributed poster sessions.  Workshop and poster presenters have the opportunity to publish a paper in the peer reviewed conference proceedings.

The conference is limited to the first 150 registrants.
