IAPS 2022-2023

iaps2cern 2014 application has been extended!

Dear friends,
We apologize for the silence during a while, but here are some news!

Good News #1: this year, we are going to stay at the very heart of the CERN! We are glad to announce that IAPS has been allowed to stay in the CERN hostel on the site. (As you might now, before we usually had to accommodate our group in a Youth Hostel in Geneva).

Good News #2: the number of places has been increased from 28 to 46!
Thus we still welcome your applications as the deadline has been extended.

The dates remain official: from Tuesday 22 April 2014 to Friday 25 April 2014.

At the same time, we had to try hard to fit this into the project’s budget. In order to keep the trip participation cost on the same level (€ 90 for IAPS members and € 100 for non IAPS members) and to keep it affordable for undergraduates, we had to give up a few perks. Now, the participation fee includes:

  • NO meals (even breakfast)
  • NO Geneva transportation card

Still, many solutions are possible on the spot and this will not be a problem but we want to make you aware of this and that you will have a few more expenses during the trip.

The full information can be found here.

If you have already submitted your application, your application is still recorded and we will contact you directly to ask you to confirm. Please pay attention to these changes in the conditions and personally decide if this is OK for you.

An we’re very excited to do this trip together in April!

Go to CERN with IAPS! We’re waiting for your applications.

In case of any questions, please contact Anton Dudko.


ICPS 2013 is here!

On August 15, the 28th International Conference of Physics Students ICPS 2013 opened!

This year it is hosted by Heriot-Watt University here in Edinburgh, Scotland. It’s the second ICPS to ever take place in the United Kingdom. Some 270 participants have already had a chance to explore the Scotland’s capital during it’s Fringe Festival and dance at a real Scottish Ceilidh.

Just tomorrow, on August 18, the Annual General Meeting of IAPS will take place and we will learn the new Executive Committee and the location of ICPS 2015!

Best greetings from Scotland!

Deadline for ICPS Worldwide Grant EXTENDED

The big idea of the IAPS is to enable more and more students from far-away countries to come and enjoy physics with us! This is why we’re giving everybody another chance to participate in the ICPS Worldwide Grant competition. This is your chance to get a free trip to the ICPS conference in Edinburgh, Scotland in August 2013.
