IAPS 2022-2023

Happy 35th anniversary of IAPS

12th September 2022 is the 35th Anniversary of IAPS! Join us to continue building a larger and more inclusive community.

In 1986, four Hungarian physics students, Levai, Horváth, Budai and Van had the idea of creating an international association of physics students and in 1987, their proposal was formally accepted at the 2nd International Conference of Students of Physics (ICSP, or as it is now renamed, ICPS).
