Proposed Sites to Host LT27 (in 2014)

Proposals are now being sought from those who have an interest to host the 27th International Conference on Low Temperature Physics to be held in 2014.  By natural rotation, LT27 is expected to be held in North or South America; LT25 was in Amsterdam, Netherlands, in 2008 and LT26 will be held in Beijing China in 2011. 

Deadline for receipt of nominations is April 15, 2011.  The C-5 Committee anticipates that the selection will be finalized during its meeting in Beijing at the time of LT26 (early August, 2011) and announced at the end of that meeting.
