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.
APS and the Sociedad Brasileira de Fisica (SBF) co-sponsor an exchange program for physics Ph.D. students, postdocs, and physicists. The program supports professors and other working physicists to teach a short course or deliver a lecture series. Ph.D. students and postdocs can apply to pursue a variety of opportunities, including working in a laboratory or attending a summer institute.
Brazil-U.S. Exchange Program
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:
