ICPS 2019 first round registrations over

The first round of registrations for the 2019 edition of the International Conference of Physics Students (ICPS), to be held in Cologne, Germany, closed on February 28th, having lasted the whole month.
With hundreds of IAPS members having signed up, including many new Individual Members, most spots for the conference are likely to be filled. But the second round, only less than four weeks away, will be an opportunity for those who weren't able to register in February to still get a chance to attend!
Follow IAPS social media and ICPS 2019 on Facebook and Instagram to be kept up to date with ICPS info!
Cologne, here we go!

iaps2CERN Registrations are no more

The awesome IAPS excursion to the European Organization for Nuclear Research (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, CERN) has now closed registrations.
Many people signed up for this fantastic journey during the registration period in February, with most getting a spot to the trip!
Even if you aren't going this time, you can look through the program and more information at iaps2CERN website and check out how previous editions went!
This is going to be iaps2GREAT!

ICPYS Low Temperature Physics (LTP) 2019 extended registrations

The Council of Young Scientists (IAPS LC Kharkiv) of the B. Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering (ILTPE), organisers of the International Conference for Professionals and Young Scientists LTP 2019 (June 3rd to 7th), has extended the registration deadline to March 15th!
The best thing about ICPYS LTP 2019 is that IAPS members don't pay participation fee!

Here's to another great conference!

HYPE back for a second edition

This year, the HistorY and Physics Experience (HYPE) returns between the 10th and the 12th of May, to be held in Rome!
This event is the result of a collaboration that joined the International Students of History Association (ISHA) and IAPS for the first edition last year.
In building a bridge connecting the Sciences and the Humanities, HYPE gives participants a view of the mutual influence of their fields of study.

More info is to be released soon, so follow IAPS and HYPE on Facebook for new developments!

International Day of Light registrations ongoing

The worldwide UNESCO initiative to celebrate the role of light in every aspect of our everyday lives is back!
This year, the International Day of Light (IDL) flagship conference, on May 16th, is happening in Trieste, Italy at the UNESCO Category 1 Institute The Abdul Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP).
Sir Michael Berry (University of Bristol) is one of the main lecturers expected at the celebration with the theme "Illuminating Education".
Find out more about IDL 2019!

Register until May 10th following these instructions!


IAPSportunities deadlines reached

Applications for the jIAPS Article Contest and the ICPS Worldwide Grant officially closed on March 1st, having run through the month of February.
These opportunities to attend ICPS with financial support from IAPS serve to reward applicants' efforts in writing a scientific article for jIAPS or preparing a student lecture to be presented at ICPS and mitigate the effects of financial hardship in students' ability to participate in this major IAPS event.
Stay tuned to find out who won!

International Day of Light Travel Grants available

Considering the difficulty for a lot of students in being able to support the costs of attending this event, the organisation of IDL has some travel grants available for participants from the countries on this list!
To apply for a Travel Grant, go here, select "Apply Here" in the column on the left and follow further instructions. The deadline for applying for financial support is March 17th, so mark your calendar and start preparing your application!

Let there be light on Physics students!


NC Italy holds their national conference in March

Opportunity Rover officially disabled

On February 12th, the last attempt to revive NASA's Opportunity, one of the Mars Exploration Rovers (MER), failed, prompting the declaration of its end by NASA.
After some 15 years of exploring Mars, gathering data about the planet, a severe dust storm damaged the apparatus, ultimately rendering it inoperative.
The legacy of 'Oppy' will certainly live on both through its historic achievements and the continuity of the exploration of Mars by the other rovers. Learn about Oppy's mission and his buddies here!

Thank you, Oppy!
