2018 PNT Symposium

Our 2018 PNT Symposium was held on Wednesday and Thursday, November 7- 8, in the Kavli Auditorium at SLAC, about 3.5 miles west of the Stanford campus off Sand Hill Road. This year's symposium was dedicated to the memory of SCPNT Director, Per Enge, who passed away on April 22, 2018. Following the invited speaker presentations on Thursday, Nick Enge, son of Per Enge presented a brief family history and some anecdotes about his father. The symposium then concluded with reflections on Per Enge by a number of Per's colleagues and a presentation of an American flag to the Enge family.
