ICPS 2014 in Heidelberg

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!

iaps2cern 2014 application has been extended!

Dear friends,
We apologize for the silence during a while, but here are some news!

Good News #1: this year, we are going to stay at the very heart of the CERN! We are glad to announce that IAPS has been allowed to stay in the CERN hostel on the site. (As you might now, before we usually had to accommodate our group in a Youth Hostel in Geneva).

Good News #2: the number of places has been increased from 28 to 46!
Thus we still welcome your applications as the deadline has been extended.

The dates remain official: from Tuesday 22 April 2014 to Friday 25 April 2014.

At the same time, we had to try hard to fit this into the project’s budget. In order to keep the trip participation cost on the same level (€ 90 for IAPS members and € 100 for non IAPS members) and to keep it affordable for undergraduates, we had to give up a few perks. Now, the participation fee includes:

  • NO meals (even breakfast)
  • NO Geneva transportation card

Still, many solutions are possible on the spot and this will not be a problem but we want to make you aware of this and that you will have a few more expenses during the trip.

The full information can be found here.

If you have already submitted your application, your application is still recorded and we will contact you directly to ask you to confirm. Please pay attention to these changes in the conditions and personally decide if this is OK for you.

An we’re very excited to do this trip together in April!

Go to CERN with IAPS! We’re waiting for your applications.

In case of any questions, please contact Anton Dudko.
