In this era of globalization, international issues cut across essentially all aspects of the APS and physics community.
Report, Recommendations, and Implementation
In 2017, APS launched a Task Force on Expanding International Engagement to examine how the Society could increase its international engagement and better serve its members, the physics community, and society at large. The Task Force worked to understand the interests and concerns of stakeholders to develop priorities and recommendations for APS. This resulted in a report and recommendations that were adopted by the APS Council of Representatives in November 2018.
IRTAP promotes international scientific collaborations between physicists in developing and developed countries. Grant recipients receive up to $2,000 towards travel expenses to visit their collaborator abroad for a minimum of one month. Learn more about the program and how to apply on the IRTAP website. Proposal deadline: September 20, 2019
CAM is a bi-annual conference exclusively planned by and for physics graduate students in North America. It provides students from all physics subdisciplines the opportunity to present their research, build an international network, and develop professional skills. CAM 2019 will be held in Sudbury, Canada, July 24-27.
The Beller Lectureship provides funding and support to bring distinguished physicists from abroad to present invited talks at APS meetings.
Reciprocal societies are national physical societies that have signed an agreement with APS to exchange certain membership privileges. APS members may take advantage of the following benefits from reciprocal societies:
