Advanced summer school for undergraduate and postgraduate students of medicine and physics
14th–25th July 2014
The city of Szeged is proud to have been chosen as the site of one of the four pillars of a massive European laser project entitled ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure). Szeged will host ELI-ALPS (Atto-second Light Pulse Source), a facility dedicated to ultra-short laser pulses. Apart from breaking new ground in the study of very fast atomic and molecular processes, it is also expected to bring about improvements in medicine and life sciences. To discuss and disseminate the implications of these developments, we hereby invite you to the summer school entitled Lasers in Medicine and Life Sciences 2014, taking place between 14 and 25 July, 2014.
The 6th International Summer University on Renewable Energies is an interdisciplinary 2-week summer university, which encompasses areas such as photovoltaics, solar architecture, solar thermal and wind energy as well as economic and political aspects.
It will take place from August 24th to September 5th in Falera/Switzerland.
Please check www.helmholtz-berlin.de/events/isu-energy/ for further information and registration.
The rules are simple! You are required to write an article in English, about 2-5 pages about a Physics related subject. The deadline for this competition is June 31, 2014 and the winner will be announced by July 10, 2014. More details area available at: http://www.iaps.info/grants/jiaps-article-contest
Are you a physics student under 26, living outside of Europe? Are you enthusiastic about physics and getting to know people with similar interests? Would you like to try yourself in a scientific conference, presenting a student lecture or a poster? Would you have a hard time covering the expenses of attending ICPS? We have some good news!
The ICPS Worldwide grant is a post-financed contribution that covers the registration fee and up to 80% of travel costs for the best two applicants. Please keep in mind that the deadline is 1st March, 2014! Check the exact requirements and more information at http://www.iaps.info/grants/icps-grant. We look forward to receiving your applications!
The International Conference of Physics Students (ICPS) 2014 will take place from 10th to 17th of August 2014 in Heidelberg, Germany. It is the main event of IAPS and is organised by physics students for physics students. It will bring together around 450 young researchers from all over the world and features invited lectures by top-class scientists, presentations and posters by students as well as exciting workshops, lab tours and a physics show at Heidelberg University. A one-day trip to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is included in the program and the participants will be able to visit many exciting experiments. Additional excursions to research facilities and world leading companies as Mercedes, Bosch or TRUMPF will give an insight into some of Germany’s state of the art research. As guest speakers we can already present Metin Tolan (Shaken, not stirred! James Bond in the Focus of Physics), Karlheinz Meier (From Ions to Electrons – Physical Models of Brain Circuits) and John Dudley, president of the European Physical Society (Surviving in Science: What they don’t tell you about careers in research!). More guest lectures will be announced soon!
