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 24th Congress was scheduled for Adelaide from 6-11 December 2020, but has been postponed due to the corona virus pandemic, to 6-10 December, 2021. Further information will be communicated via the monthly email from the AIP President.
Here is a complete list of previous congresses with details of where to access the programme and possibly the abstracts.
