In this area you will find information on current and earlier events. The main topics are, of course, the annual meetings of the SPS, but also other conferences which have strong relations or are organised in conjunction with the SPS.

Below this page also lists short announcements for conferences of other institutions forwarded to us. Please contact the SPS Secretariat if you want your announcement to be placed here.


Annual Meeting 2022

The next annual meeting will take place at the University of Fribourg, 27 - 30 June 2022. This year the Swiss Institute for Particle Physics (CHIPP), the NCCR Bio-Inspired Materials, and the Swiss Society for Neutron Science (SGN) will partake as organising partners. An interesting and rich program is thus guaranteed.

On 1 July 2022 the satellite event "Women in Physics Career Symposium" will take place.

The conference is planned to take place, as in 2021, as in persona event. Possible restrictions or changes will be announced here in time.

EPS Forum 2022

The European Physical Society organizes a first EPS Forum on the 2 - 4 June 2022 at the Sorbonne University International Conference Center in Paris. This is an international meeting of interest for all European researchers, PhD students and Post Docs who wish to be introduced to exciting research opportunities in large companies and start-ups and engage in a dialogue with representatives of the industry sector.

The EPS Forum will take place essentially on two days and include a series of conferences, roundtables and workshops on the following topics:

  • Condensed matter physics: from quantum materials to additive manufacturing
  • Energy and sustainability, transportation and technology
  • Accelerators, high-energy particle physics, nuclear physics
  • Quantum technologies and photonics
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • Biophysics, technological sequencing of proteins, pandemic, cancer treatments

Day 1 titled Physics meets Industry, will be dedicated to the employment of young physicists in Europe and favour direct exchanges with CEOs, managers and engineers of major industrial companies in these fields. Day 2 will address scientific and societal challenges facing the physics community, including latest achievements in physics presented by the most outstanding physicists, among them 3 Nobel laureates.

molQueST Conference

21 - 25 August 2022, Congressi Stefano Franscini (CSF), Monte Verità, Ascona

"Quantum Science Emerging from Atoms and Molecules at Surfaces" builds upon breakthroughs in the art of making atomic and molecular architectures. Electronic and nuclear quantum states can now be manipulated at the single atomic level in a controlled surface environment by using either local probes or global electric and magnetic fields. This conference, as a continuation of the ones of 2014 and 2017, will address the use of quantum and spin states in atoms and molecules at surfaces for sensing, information storage, and information processing (logic) devices.

Organizing Committee: Thomas Jung, PSI, Villigen; Harald Brune, EPFL; Pietro Gambardella, ETH Zürich; Jan Dreiser, PSI, Villigen; Silvio Decurtins, University of Bern
