Chinese Physical Society (CPS) is Sending a Delegation to the C.S. Wu Event

Chinese Physical Society (CPS) is Sending a Delegation to the September 24th, 2022 Event to Honor Madame Chien-Shiung Wu

The event on September 24th 2022 in honor of one of the greatest female scientists of the 20th century, Madame Chien-Shiung Wu, is co-sponsored by two of the world’s most distinguished professional societies, the American Physical Society (APS) and the Chinese Physical Society (CPS). The combined membership of these two organizations is over 100,000.

Nanjing University Alumni Association United States (NUAAUS) is the organization which is assuming the logistics of the entire event.

Professor Jianglai Liu

To assume its responsibility as one of the organizers, CPS has made the decision to send a delegation to the event. The delegation is led by Professor Liu Jianglai, the special representative of the President of CPS, Academician Zhang Jie.

Besides his responsibility in the CPS, Professor Liu has had deep and extensive relations with the United States physics communities. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland and postdoctoral training from the California Institute of Technology, before assuming his professorship in Shanghai Jiao Tong University. It should be pointed that Professor Liu completed his undergraduate education in physics from Nanjing University. It is interesting

that this physics department, before 1949, is the department which existed in the National Central University. Indeed, this was also the department which Madame Wu completed her education.

Professor Liu is a distinguished professor of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, whose research works in elementary particle physics, which is the main field Madame Wu had worked for many years.

It is worth underscoring that the two presidents of the APS in 2021 and 2024 respectively, Professor Sylvester James Gates of the University of Maryland and Professor Young-Kee Kim of the University of Chicago will also personally be present and deliver their comments at the event.

The son of Madame C.S. Wu, Dr. Vincent Yuan, expressed his great pleasure in approving the NUAAUS to organize this commemorative event.

The U.S. Postal Service wrote to NUAAUS and authorized the use of Chien-shung Wu commemorative stamp to honor her as "one of the most influential nuclear physicists of the 20th century".
