The annual meeting at the European Physical Society (EPS) in Mulhouse, France is on going.
On August 15, the 28th International Conference of Physics Students ICPS 2013 opened!
This year it is hosted by Heriot-Watt University here in Edinburgh, Scotland. It’s the second ICPS to ever take place in the United Kingdom. Some 270 participants have already had a chance to explore the Scotland’s capital during it’s Fringe Festival and dance at a real Scottish Ceilidh.
Just tomorrow, on August 18, the Annual General Meeting of IAPS will take place and we will learn the new Executive Committee and the location of ICPS 2015!
Best greetings from Scotland!
We’re happy to share with you the new problem set of the International Physicists’ Tournament. You will find these really out-of-the-box, challenging, and damn interesting because seen in everyday life.
Please find at the official website here or in PDF files:
Have fun solving!
The European Physical Society invites you to attend the
European Science Education Academy Workshop
to discuss the framework for the development of the European Science Education Academy.
Four sessions are being planned to enable participants to join in different discussions:
- Theme A: Toward a Standard-Based Approach to Teaching science by Inquiry
- Theme B: Defining Best Practices in Teachers preparation programmes
- Theme C: Methods for improving teacher effectiveness in schools
- Theme D: Best Practices in implementing Inquiry Based Science Education in Schools
More information can be found in the ESAE Workshop website.
The big idea of the IAPS is to enable more and more students from far-away countries to come and enjoy physics with us! This is why we’re giving everybody another chance to participate in the ICPS Worldwide Grant competition. This is your chance to get a free trip to the ICPS conference in Edinburgh, Scotland in August 2013.

We’re looking forward to your applications, until March 29! Good luck!

Imagine spending 3 weeks of your summer in beautiful countryside scenery working with other students from all over the world on an astronomical project of your choice. The International Astronomical Youth Camp (IAYC) is a three-week long summer camp aiming to promote knowledge on astronomy and related sciences in a unique international atmosphere. Each year it takes place in a different European location, this year near the small town of Klingenthal in the region of Vogtland, situated in the East of Germany.
The IAYC is different from most astronomical camps for two reasons: the international character and the fact that you carry out your own small research project. You will not just accept facts, but you will discover them yourself or working together with other people. The IAYC is therefore not like staying in a hotel and following a summer school or an astronomy course. We are proud that award winning projects were carried out during the camp and many of the IAYC alumni chose science as their profession and work in leading astronomical centers.
