RECOGNIZING the increasing importance of the relation between physics and society in general, the American Institute of Physics Corporate Associates chose this topic as its theme for its tenth annual meeting, held in New York City from 1–2 Oct. More than 150 physicists from industry and academic institutions heard lectures and exchanged ideas on the image of physics in society, on the tensions between basic research and social goals, new trends in education and the role of AIP in serving the physics community. Also at the meeting AIP awarded its Karl Taylor Compton gold medal to Alan T. Waterman and talks were given on new developments in particle physics, neutron probing, electroluminescence and plasma dynamics.
