2016 AVS Symposium

On September 20 – 23, 2016 the annual Rocky Mountain AVS Symposium was held at the Westminster DoubleTree Hotel.  The topic for the main technical session on September 22 was Space: the Final Vacuum Frontier, and featured seven invited speakers.  We thank our five sponsors and 27 vendors for their support and a very lively exhibit hall.   Our 2017 Symposium is tentatively planned for the September 18th week – watch here for a finalized date.

Silver Sponsor 2016

The Rocky Mountain AVS symposium would like to thank our sponsors and vendors for their support.  SAES® Group is the world leader in a variety of scientific and industrial applications where stringent vacuum conditions are required. For more than 70 years, the NEG technology has provided optimal performance for ultrahigh vacuum and high vacuum systems. Because of the small size and high performance, NEG pumps are widely used in mass spectrometry requiring high performance in a lightweight low volume package. Since these pumps do not always require continuous power, it makes it ideal for portable mass spectrometers, requiring constant pumping during transportation or continued pumping during power failures.

RMCAVS Annual Activities

Each year our chapter has an active vendor show, symposium and short course program in September. We participate in educational outreach through the Colorado Association of Science Teachers (CAST) to provide monetary awards to outstanding physical science teachers at the elementary, middle and high school levels. The Chapter sponsors one teacher each year to attend the Science Educators Workshop at the International AVS Symposium.

We are always interested in expanding our membership and finding candidates who would like to be more involved. If you are interested in serving in a chapter leadership position or participating in one or more of our activities please contact us. www.avs.org/Chapters/Rocky-Mtn
