A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE 2024 EPS FORUM
The European Physical Society (EPS) joins forces with its 42 Member Societies, 18 Divisions and Groups and 40 Associate Members to organise the second edition of the EPS FORUM which will take place on-site at the Henry Ford Building of Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, between the 25th and the 27th of March 2024.
The format of the EPS Forum will include a series of conferences, round tables and workshops on the following topics:
- Atomic molecular and optical physics for quantum technologies
- Applications of nuclear and particle physics to society
- Condensed matter and applications to industry
- Physical models for energy management, pollution and climate; neuromorphic computing
The EPS Forum aims to showcase the latest developments in the above fields highlighting both their potential links with industry and current opportunities of employment for our young generation of physicists and from the most recent achievements in fundamental science.
The EPS Forum will dedicate a day to each of these goals.
The second day will host a general conference in physics on the same fields, addressed from a more fundamental point of view and sponsored by high-profile scientists. Round tables will also be dedicated to societal issues.
A third day will be devoted to internal EPS affairs with the holding of the 2024 EPS Council Meeting.
This combination provides a unique forum to obtain informative overviews and discuss recent advances in a wide spectrum of topics, to meet in person the most qualified personalities in research including Nobel and Wolf prize laureates, and to exchange directly with CEOs, representatives and stakeholders of the industrial sector connected to the above selected topics.
We wish to make the EPS Forum one of the Europe’s largest conferences in physics in the future. This desire is shared by the most prominent national physical societies in Europe, in particular the German Physical Society (DPG), the Danish Physical Society, the Swiss Physical Society, the Italian Physical Society, the Portuguese Physical Society and the Royal Spanish Physical Society, who contribute under the umbrella of the European Physical Society, in partnership with the following EPS Divisions and Groups:
- The Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics Division,
- The Condensed Matter Division,
- The High-Energy and Particle Physics Division,
- The Quantum Electronics and Optics Division,
- The Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division,
- The Technology and Innovation Group,
- The Young Minds Action Committee,
- The Nuclear Physics Division.
The programme will feature plenary lectures, invited talks, contributed talks and poster sessions, together with round tables and workshops on technological applications and societal issues related to these topics.
The second edition of the EPS Forum follows the first edition held in Paris in 2022 which was considered a great success (www.epsforum.org/v1/). We have secured the commitment of many national physical societies in Europe and several research organisations, which we consider as a guarantee of success for this second event .
We will be delighted to welcome you and enjoy a great event in Berlin.
Do not hesitate: Register and attend the 2024 EPS Forum!
