[Andrew Chamblin Memorial Symposium]


On 22nd March 2006, friends and colleagues of Andrew Chamblin gathered at the University of Louisville to celebrate his career as a theoretical physicist.

The programme included research talks by five of Andrew's colleagues and collaborators, primarily on work either done with Andrew or directly influenced by him. The talks spanned a range representative of his interests and were by themselves a perfect demonstration of the depth of his impact on the field.

The final retrospective portion of the Symposium was more informal. Friends shared stories and discussed Andrew's impact on their research and their lives. Written remembrances from friends who were not able to attend the Symposium were read aloud.

The Symposium was followed by a memorial service at which family, friends, and local colleagues from the University of Louisville spoke. Two memorial services took place on 9th June and 10th June 2006 in Oxford and Cambridge, UK, respectively.

These pages are a record of Andrew's Memorial Symposium, and like the Symposium, they are intended to honour his legacy as a physicist. We welcome additional contributions from all whose lives and careers were touched by Andrew.
