What is the ICPS?

The ICPS stands for the International Conference of Physics Students, which is the main event of the IAPS, organized yearly by one of its member committees. The purpose of the conference is to create an opportunity for physics students to come together, to talk about science and life, to practice presenting their research and, all in all, to have a great time. The conference is entirely organised by physics students for physics students, and its official language is English.


Since the first conference in Hungary in 1986 the conference has increased continuosly in size and number of activities offered for the participants. At the ICPS you can meet physics students from all around the world, talk about science and life and present your research results to an international audience. The conference includes lectures by invited speakers, contributed talks by students, poster sessions, scientific and cultural excursions and many other events where you can get to know people who are enthusiastic about physics and learn more about science as well as other cultures.


In 2014 the ICPS was held in Heidelberg, Germany, where Malta has been chosen as the host of the ICPS 2016, and on this site you can find the list of previously organised ICPS's. In case your national committee is interested in organising the ICPS in 2017, the IAPS EC has put together some useful information here.
