Professional events

There are 5 guest lectures planned, and we are looking for lecturers to be accomplished and sociable physicists, interested in sharing their experiences (and our events!) with interested physics students.

Lab visits at various institutions in Zagreb will be held during one of the afternoons of the conference. More information will be available at a later date.

We are planning on hosting several round tables on different topics relevant to physics students. More details are coming soon.

Student contributions

Any participant of the ICPS can apply to hold a lecture, present a poster, or inspire their colleagues with an entertaining talk. The contributions can be used to present your research or a topic of interest, and they should be prepared so that most physics students will be able to understand the basic ideas, as well as learn something interesting. When applying for a student contribution, you will be asked to give a title and a short abstract – the Organizing Committee will inform you should your contribution be accepted.

A total of 90 student lectures will be held, each lasting 18 minutes (15 minutes for the lecture and 3 minutes for the discussion). The lectures will be organized in several sessions, with 3 programmes running in parallel. After each lecture there will be 2 minutes in which you are free to move to a different lecture hall.

There will be 2 student poster sessions, with a maximum of 80 posters presented. The authors are invited to be available during their poster session, in order to give further explanations and answer questions.

If you're more interested in a less rigid mode of contribution, a TeSlam will be organized as an evening event (following last year's highly successful "Einstein Slam", held at the ICPS 2014 in Germany). At this event, you are asked to present a topic related to physics in an entertaining or funny way.

The best student poster, lecture and talk will be chosen by the participants, and rewarded by the end of the conference.
