An Annual Affair

The Summer Meeting

Accessible. Affordable. Annual. These ideas motivated the Australian Institute of Physics to add a Summer Meeting to the Australian Physics Calendar. The Summer Meeting, held in alternate years to the AIP congress,  will cover the full spectrum of Physics research, with an emphasis on students and early career researchers.
