With the Covid-19 pandemic still raging in a majority of the world and the new variant being more dangerous than ever before, we as the community face new uncertainties and risks. Thus, because the health of all IAPS members is the highest priority to us, instead of fully canceling the event, we will provide you in next year’s summer with a beautiful online ICPS 2022 made in Mexico.
So stay tuned for the ICPS 2022 Social Media and website and don’t miss the registration opening soon.

As we all know, the current challenge we are all facing of the pandemic, along with the consequent socio-economic difficulties, has forced the suspension of the major IAPS physical events, particularly PLANCKS and ICPS. These are, of course, very sad circumstances for us all.
Yet, though we may not be able to meet physically, we should strive to continue connecting as a community of students. In the spirit and responsibility of contributing to that purpose, the IAPS EC, in particular the Advocacy and the Events Working Groups, have prepared a calendar of online sessions about various Physics, Advocacy or general topics of interest to Physics students.
The sessions for week 1 are:
Physics of the Cryosphere, with Dr. Richard Essery – Secretary General of the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS) on August 13th at 8.00 PM CEST
LGBTQ+ People in Physics, with Dr. Jake Noel-Storr – Member of the International Astronomical Union Executive Committee Working Group Organizing Committee on Accessibility and Inclusion on August 14th at 1.00 PM CEST
Dear members of IAPS, the next AGM is approaching and another event host that will be selected there is for PLANCKS 2022 competition. If you want to make a bid for hosting PLANCKS 2022, you can find information on how to do it from our bidding guide here: https://www.iaps.info/plancks/bids-for-plancks/
Dear members of IAPS, the next AGM is approaching and the host for ICPS 2022 will be decided there. If you want to make a bid for hosting ICPS 2022, you can find information on how to do it from our bidding guide here: https://www.iaps.info/icps/bids-for-icps/
Registrations for the International Conference of Physics Students (ICPS) 2020 in Puebla have opened a second round which is open until February 29th!
If you missed the first round in December, you have an opportunity to sign up for this awesome conference in Puebla, Mexico, where Science, Culture and social activities with hundreds of your fellow Physics students will make for a week of fun, learning and establishing contacts and friendships across the world!
The final agenda of the 2019 Annual General Meeting has been released to members by the IAPS Executive Committee, as posted below.
To be held physically at the University of Cologne, in Cologne, Germany, during day 4 of ICPS, starting at 9:00 AM CEST (Central European Summer Time, UTC+2) on August 13th, this meeting is open for online attendance, which IAPS members can request by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
Once more, we remind everyone that, per IAPS Charter, National Committees (NCs) will have 7 votes, Local Committees (LCs) will have 2 votes and Individual Members from each country have, collectively, 1 vote.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org!
