The EPS Young Minds (EPS YM)

The EPS Young Minds (EPS YM) Programme is an initiative of the European Physical Society to interconnect young researchers in Europe and to promote science to the broad public.

The Leadership Meeting (LM) is the annual gathering of the programme, which brings together delegates from the whole YM network. After the 2020 meeting was cancelled and the 2021 meeting was hosted as a virtual event, the Leadership Meeting 2022 will be first physical meeting of the YM network since the LM 2019. The LM 2022 will be integrated into the EPS Forum 2022, offering the participants even more possibilities for networking and exchange than previous LM did.

The meeting will comprise a networking event, three talks from invited speakers, as well as a poster session in which participants can share their section work with the community. Moreover, participants will have the possibility to attend plenary talks of the Nobel Laureates J. Michael Kosterlitz, Serge Haroche and Barry Barish.

The event is tailored for representatives of the EPS YM sections, but any Forum participant who is interested in learning about EPS YM or who is interested in a specific session is welcome to join.

The programme

The programme of the LM 2022 will extend over two days,  2nd and 3rd of June. While section delegates are expected to attend the sessions of the Leadership Meeting, they are free and invited to attend any other sessions of the Forum during slots where no LM session is scheduled, in particular the Nobel Laureate talks on June 3rd.
