Joint Annual Meeting 2019

The next Annual Meeting will take place at the University of Zürich, in the week of 26 - 30 August 2019. The well established tradition of organising the conference every second year jointly with the Austrian Physical Society (ÖPG) will continue. Further partners, e.g. the MaNEP association, will also contribute.

Save the date !

It is your conference, so we welcome contributions from all topical fields. The detailed announcement will be published in Spring 2019.
