Joint March Meeting and April Meeting: APS Global Physics Summit

Mar 16–21, 2025
Anaheim, CA

We are excited to share that the 2025 Joint March Meeting and April Meeting will now be called the APS Global Physics Summit. This event is the largest physics research conference in the world, uniting 14,000 members of the scientific community across all disciplines of physics.

  • Learn from your research areas of interest
  • Explore cross-disciplinary educational sessions and collaborative events
  • Unite to advance physics and create a bright future

This joint meeting reflects the inclusivity and adjacency of many physics disciplines.

Both in-person and virtual presentation and registration options will be available.

Get to know the convenient campus

Three venues adjacent to one another — Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim Marriott, and Hilton Anaheim — make up the APS Global Physics Summit campus. Each venue will host distinct sessions represented by the traditional March Meeting and April Meeting disciplines, as well as APS units.

Cross-disciplinary sessions and networking events will take place in all three places and in the outdoor plaza that connects them. Registration will give attendees access to all venues.

  • Anaheim Marriott will host April Meeting sessions: particles and fields, astrophysics, gravitational physics, nuclear physics, beams, hadronic physics, physics education research, and more.
  • Anaheim Convention Center will host sessions on quantum information, condensed matter, materials physics, magnetism, computational physics, industrial and applied physics, and other March Meeting disciplines.
  • Hilton Anaheim will host sessions on SPLASHY matter — soft, polymeric, living, active, statistical, heterogenous, and yielding matter, and other March Meeting disciplines.

Who attends

More than 14,000 physicists from around the globe will meet to present their research and collaborate. Both March Meeting and April Meeting disciplines will be represented by:

  • More than 900 undergraduate students
  • 5,500 graduate students
  • Physicists from industry, academia, and national labs
  • Employers recruiting for all career stages
  • Scientists around the world participating via international satellite sites
