Description
The International Union of Pure and Applied Physics will turn 100 years old in 2022.

A series of activities will be carried out to celebrate this Centenary. The Centennial Symposium will take place at ICTP, Trieste, on 11, 12 and 13 July 2022. We hope that many people will be able to participate in person, but we understand that some participants will be on Zoom and so the meeting will be fully hybrid. The Symposium will include plenary talks by keynote speakers and other activities, with an emphasis on aspects of the IUPAP history, on developing countries, collaborations among countries, physics education, and many other items consistent with the IUPAP mission.
