The 2015 Executive Council and Commission Chairs (C&CC) Meeting of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) was held April 24 - 26 at the International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy.
IUPAP promotes international cooperation in physics and sponsors four types of international and regional conferences. These include (1) general conferences, (2) topical conferences, (3) special conferences, and (4) workshops in developing countries. In addition, IUPAP Commissions sponsor IUPAP Young Scientist Prizes to recognize outstanding early-career physicists, and also sponsor other awards to recognize excellence in the subfields of physics represented by the Commissions.
Four APS members attended the IUPAP C&CC meeting: Kennedy Reed, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the IUPAP president-designate; Heidi Schellman, Oregon State University, vice chair of the IUPAP Commission on Particles and Fields; Aihua Xie, Oklahoma State University, chair of the IUPAP Commission on Biological Physics; and Beverly Berger, representing the Affiliated Commission on General Relativity and Gravitation.
Please visit the IUPAP website for further information on IUPAP-sponsored conferences and awards. The nomination deadlines vary from one commission to another.
