Congress

The AIP runs biennial Congresses to bring the Australian Physics community together.  A new host is chosen each time, and the program committee draws heavily on input from the topical groups.

The 2020 Congress will be held in Adelaide.

Here is a complete list of previous congresses with details of where to access further details
