Last year’s 2021 AIP Summer Meeting was the most attended AIP Summer Meeting to date with 455 registrations.
The event was held 6-9 December, both in-person at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, and online.
The scientific program featured a diverse range of work at the vanguard of Australian physics, including plenary lectures delivered by Distinguished Professor Lidia Morawska FAA (QUT), Professor Michael Fuhrer (Monash) and Professor Halina Rubinsztein-Dunlop AO FAA (UQ).
Focused Sessions provided an opportunity for members of the physics community to bring together eminent speakers working on cutting-edge research topics.
The meeting included:
· 11 topic streams with over 30 keynote and invited speakers
· More than 280 talks and 45 posters
· Three workshops and two pitch sessions
· In relation to the meeting’s diversity agenda, 42% of plenary/keynote/invited speakers identified as female, 55% were male-identifying and 3% were unspecified. Almost all Australian states and territories as well as universities were represented. More info here.
