Four early career nominees will be selected to speak at the next Schroth Faces of the Future Symposium during the next APS Annual Meeting. Each year the symposium's featured discipline rotates. Selected speakers are given the opportunity to present their research and speculate on the future directions of their discipline. In addition, the speakers will have the opportunity to submit a mini-review based on their talk to be published as a fully citable APS feature. Each speaker will receive $500 to support their travel to the APS Annual Meeting. Funding for this award was generously provided by Milt and Nancy Schroth through the APS Foundation.
