Walter Burke Institute Dedication

Where: Hameetman Auditorium, Cahill

An Invitation from the Chair…

Dear Colleagues,

President Tom Rosenbaum will dedicate the Walter Burke Institute of Theoretical Physics on February 23, 2015 at 2:30 p.m. in Hameetman Auditorium, Cahill Center. Provost Ed Stolper, Director Hirosi Ooguri and a representative of the Sherman Fairchild Foundation will also be speaking at the dedication ceremony.

There will be an inaugural symposium on February 23-24, following the dedication, where current topics in theoretical physics will be presented by eight former prize fellows, with introductions by their mentors at Caltech. For more information about the symposium, please visit the Walter Burke Institute website.

This is a major milestone for Caltech and PMA, as we strengthen our leading role in fundamental research with sustained financial support. I strongly encourage everyone to attend the dedication ceremony and show your support for the Burke Institute. There will be an open reception after the session on February 23.

Best wishes,

B. Thomas Soifer
