Main Question or Discussion Point

Today, Oct. 10 2007, marks the start of the conference at UIUC celebrating the 50th anniversary of the BCS Theory of Superconductivity. This news report has a good summary of the discovery and also the significance of the theory beyond just condensed matter physics, something that I have always tried to impress upon people. I think in all of physics, the BCS theory is one of the landmark physics theories that will go down as one of humankind greatest ideas. 50 years has passed and it is still appreciated for its importance.

Were you able to attend? The first day was really interesting. Hearing about the history and how everyone interacted and helped each other.

I think they are going to post the talks online and maybe also sell a dvd.

No, I wasn't able to attend. I don't think I had a good enough excuse to take several days off to go to Urbana.

It would be nice if they have a DVD of the whole proceedings. I would buy it.
