International conference for physics students

13 June 2007

UCL will be hosting the 22nd International Conference of Physics Students (ICPS) from 10-16 August.

International Association of Physics Students

Up to 400 delegates from all over the world will come to give short lectures on their research or other topics from physics or astronomy. Guest lecturers are also invited, including Professor Andrew Fisher of the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN).This year will be the first time the conference is held in the UK. Two years ago, Nexus, the student wing of the Institute of Physics, submitted a bid to the International Association of Physics Students to host ICPS, which has been held in a different European city every year since 1986.

The event will include a number of academic excursions planned to various sites of scientific interest in the UK, as well as a number of interactive workshops or discussion sessions. It is planned that participants will also be shown around some of the research facilities at UCL and the LCN.

The busy academic schedule is balanced out by a number of social events to promote interaction between students from different countries.
