The AIP runs biennial Congresses to bring the Australian Physics community together. A new host is chosen each time, and the program committee draws heavily on input from the topical groups.
The 24th Congress was scheduled for Adelaide in December 2020, but has been postponed due to the corona virus pandemic, to 11-16 December, 2022. Further information will be communicated via the monthly email from the AIP President.
Here is a complete list of previous congresses with details of where to access the programme and possibly the abstracts.
