John Weisend, head of the Experimental Facilities Department (EFD), was recently elected to the Board of Technical Directors of the Cryogenic Society of America (CSA).  As a Technical Director, Weisend will focus on organizing and chairing courses for CSA, including the 2005 Short Course Symposium and others planned to expand the society’s outreach and contribution to the discipline of cryogenic engineering.

Weisend has been active in the cryogenic field for a number of years.  Prior to coming to SLAC five years ago, he was with DESY, the Centre d’Etudes Nucleaires in Grenoble, France, and the SSC Cryogenics Department.  He edited the Handbook of Cryogenic Engineering, was co-author of Cryogenic Two-Phase Flow:  Applications to Large Scale Systems, and has authored a number of technical papers. 

CSA is a non-profit technical society serving all those interested in any phase of cryogenics.  It was formed in 1964 and derived most of its initial members from the aerospace industry.  Now members from 12 countries hold a wide range of academic degrees and occupations, including engineers, physicists, sales representatives and technicians.
