A PRECEDENT‐BREAKING joint annual meeting of the American Physical Society and American Association of Physics Teachers will take place Monday through Thursday, 29 Jan.–1 Feb. at the 25‐story Palmer House and the auxiliary La Salle Hotel in downtown Chicago. It will be the first joint annual meeting ever held in Chicago and the first such occasion at which the APS divisions themselves take responsibility for organizing their own symposia. It will also be the first regular meeting of the newly formed APS division of particles and fields, the culmination of the first AAPT teaching film competition, the first society gathering at which problems of physics and society are intensively treated and the first time APS members will have an opportunity to consider proposals that would broaden their constitution to include discussion of public issues.
