What is the IAPS?

IAPS is an association of physics students and student societies from around the globe, working to promote peaceful collaboration amongst them. Our members are represented by national and local committees, who meet at the Delegate Day to ensure the relevance of our activities.

Since 1987, the IAPS has worked continuously to support friendly relations between physics students. We support our members in their academic and professional work, as well as discussing and acting on scientific, social and cultural issues. IAPS is a recognised non-governmental organisation run entirely by students from around the world with a spirit of mutual understanding and equality. IAPS runs the annual International Conference of Physics Students (ICPS), the PLANCKS competition, visits to global research institutions, summer schools, exchange programs and multinational meetings all over the world.

IAPS collaborates with numerous international bodies amongst others: the European Physical Society, the Institute of Physics, the German Physical Society, the American Physical Society and the Informal Forum of International Student Organisations. Furthermore, IAPS is active in the acadmic HOPE network to improve physics education.
