    1) LARGE HADRON COLLIDER

    Late last year, the LHC became the most powerful particle accelerator in history, achieving proton-proton collisions at energies of 2.34 trillion electron volts. The first session of the meeting, A1, is devoted to the latest news from Geneva, where efforts are being made to further increase the beam energy and intensity (Session A1, http://meetings.aps.org/Meeting/APR10/SessionIndex2/?SessionEventID=116204).

    Other sessions will take up various LHC issues that include the interpretation of collision results and instrumentation at LHC.

    2) PHYSICS AND SECRECY

    Secrecy surrounded the hidden physics laboratories of the wartime Manhattan Project and has continued to linger around many research topics related to military matters. At session B5 Harvard physics historian Peter Galison will look at the legacy of our post-Cold War secrecy systems, while Steven Aftergood, who runs a government secrecy program at the Federation of American Scientists (http://www.fas.org/sgp/index.html), will present the current landscape of secrecy. William Happer, a former official at the Department of Energy and now a professor at Princeton, will discuss how
