This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Polish Physical Society. It is an excellent occasion to recall and underline how crucial Polish discoveries and achievements in the field of world physics are. The scientists will talk about it all during the upcoming 46th Extraordinary Congress of Polish Physicists in Warsaw.
The event will commence on 16 October 2020 to last three days. The congress has been organized in a hybrid mode. All presentations will be held on-site with the participation of lecturers, invited speakers and technical staff. The entire event will be broadcast via the YouTube platform.
- This is a great celebration for Polish physicists. We have been setting scientific trends for 100 years. Without physicists, there would be no smartphones, computers or the Internet. It is their achievements that support cancer diagnosis and the development of photovoltaics. Polish physicists participate in almost every significant international research project and are successful in their endeavours, says Prof. Andrzej Wysmołek, chairman of the Organizing Committee of the 46th Extraordinary Congress of Polish Physicists.
The program of the congress will present Polish achievements in the field of physics in a nutshell. On the first day, the professors will talk about the beginnings of the Polish Physical Society. Moreover, there will be awards, medals and the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the establishment of the Polish Physical Society. On Saturday, 17 October, 13 half-hour popular science speeches dealing with the most current issues in physics are to be given. The last day of the event will be dedicated to teachers and cover the subject of teaching physics at school.
The open poster session "100 posters for the century" (17 October, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm) will play a special role in the program of the Congress when the scientists from the Institute of Plasma Physics and Laser Microfusion will present their works.
