We are proud to announce the first edition of the iaps@LNGS – Particle & Astroparticle Physics Spring Programme!
This will be held in central Italy in May 2015 at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS), the largest astroparticle physics underground laboratory in the world. The event will also comprise a visit of Rome and some of its best research facilities focusing on nuclear fusion.
Students will be invited to present talks and posters during the time at the LNGS. Scholarships and prizes will be awarded for the best abstracts and presentations.
Registration opening: February 7th, 13:00 (CET zone). Registration closing: February 28th, 13:00 (CET).
More details are now available on the event page. Further information will soon be available on this website and on the IAPS Facebook group.
Please notice that dates for the iaps2CERN 2015 trip have slightly changed: the tour will take place from the 20th to the 23rd of April 2015. We will be staying at the Geneva Youth Hostel, which we visited in previous editions, and will then be able to enjoy a much greater set of activities for the same price. These changes will allow us to have visits of the Geneva city center, transport cards for the whole city (including boat transport!), shorter distance from the lake, the UN Office, museums, closer shops and more!
Registration will open on December 1st, at 13:00 (CET). At that time, a registration form will appear on the iaps2CERN 2015 page. The number of places is limited (45), so make sure you secure a place as soon as possible!
During the same days that we will be at CERN, researchers will be starting to use the LHC again, after its long upgrade. This produced some little issues related to visitors, but… we never gave up and we are now glad to be offering you the iaps2CERN 2015 we more enthusiasm than ever!
Looking forward to seeing many of you in Geneva,

We are happy to announce that the 58th International Conference for Students of Physics and Natural Sciences will be held in Vilnius, Lithuania on 24-27 March, 2015. It will focus on biophysics, medicine, environmental science, chemistry, laser physics, condensed matter physics, theoretical physics and much more. For further information, please have a look at the poster or go on webpage http://www.openreadings.eu/.
Our annual trip to CERN is coming close and we have now released information about this year’s plans!
Registrations open on December 1st and we will assign places on a first-come-first-served basis, trying to support applicants from less-represented regions of the world. More information can be found at this page, where the registration form will be published on December 1st.
Spread the voice around your departments, between your friends & colleagues! We look forward to welcoming you to Geneva!

On the eve of the celebration of Petr Feofilov’s 100th birthday, the Feofilov School for Young Scientists will pave the way for the celebration of the IYL 2015 by motivating students and young scientists. The School aims at creating a platform for sharing experience between young scientists and well-known distinguished scholars in the field of photonic materials.
We would like to congratulate Anna Fava for winning the jIAPS article contest 2014 with her article – “The quest for a unified theory: why quantum gravity still proves to be elusive to modern day physicists”
