The International Conference of Physics Students (ICPS) is an annual conference organised for physics students by National Committees of the International Association of Physics Students (IAPS). The first ever ICPS was held in in Budapest, Hungary in 1986. From this point on, dozens of countries have hosted the event over the decades (see the map below).

The 38th edition of ICPS will happen in August, 2024 in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Late registration

starts on June 1st.

The second round of registration is coming!

The first round of registration ended on May 27th. Since we have been receiving requests about an extension, we are considering opening the second round. Before that happens, we need to step back and count our children (i.e. ones that have already signed up). The late bird registration should start in June. Stay tuned!
