Bids for the ICPS 2021

We are waiting for your bids to host the XXXVI. International Conference of Physics Students (ICPS 2021).

You and your local or national IAPS committee can gain many experiences from the organisation of an event as big as an ICPS. Several things such as meals, accommodation, the possibilities for students to get to the chosen location, lecture halls and more have to be considered, and challenges might arise. But don’t hesitate to make a bid for the ICPS just because of that. The EC and organisers from previous ICPSs are always willing to support you in any way possible.

Are you wondering what does a bid look like? Find out what to include in your bid.

If you think that you aren’t enough people to pull off an ICPS, just remember that for the organisation it is not necessary that all organisers live in the city the ICPS is supposed to take place. You can and should look for support at other places too.

So go ahead, find fellow organisers and put your thoughts together for a bid! Please send your application to the EC e-mail address The EC replies with suggestions to bids sent well before the AGM.
All bids should take into account the Charter (article 19) and the Regulations (article 9) of IAPS. Please note that these also include the rule that the organisers must be members of IAPS.
Bidders will be asked to write an article about their bid for jIAPS.
The host will be elected at the AGM 2020, in Cologne, Germany, where bids are presented and defended. See video examples from 2012 here (winner) and here and from 2015 here (winner).
