International Conference of Physics Students 2021



Amalie Albrechtsen, Emil Kozuch, Jonathan Piet Fjeldvig Gammeltoft, Mikkel Schmidt, Sara Andersen

The ONLINE VERSION of ICPS 2021 is hosted by the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. Home of great physicists like H.C. Ørsted, Inge Lehmann and Niels Bohr. We are looking forward to welcoming you next year! Unfortunately online this time. 

The OC is working hard to make the program just perfect before your 'arrival'! As usual, we will make sure to have a variety of speakers and tours. The program will be made to ensure that no matter what field you are interested in, there will be something for you and wherever you're from in the world YOU can participate. Confirmed speakers include a juggler that uses math to develop new tricks and an expert in space dust with a professorship in the field of science communication.

2021 is the 100th year anniversary of the Niels Bohr Institute, and we are happy to invite physicists from all over the world to celebrate this with us. We hope to see as many of you as possible next year to help us make sure this ICPS will be just as unforgettable like the rest of them!

Even though the conference will be online the OC is working on bringing a little "hygge" to each of you - wherever you are. You will still get appetizers on the great, but small city of Copenhagen and a feel of Denmark. 

The city is a charming, small, yet vibrant, city. Copenhagen offers great museums, parks, shops and nightlife. The city is well-known for its architecture, including for example the beautiful old harbour: Nyhavn, the world’s best resource handling centre: Copenhill, which has a ski slope on the roof-top and finally Amalienborg, the home castle of our queen just to mention a few. 

Everything in the inner city can be reached by bike or by foot but to complete the experience some of our tours will take you to unique places not seen by normal visitors, such as ESS, the European Spallation Source, and a windmill park on the sea. Lab tours will show you the ice core freezer at the Niels Bohr Institute – home to ice cores from the Greenland ice sheet – a Q-lab collaborating with Microsoft to develop the quantum computer of the future, the office of Niels Bohr, which has been kept untouched since the days when he was using it. And finally, something we know you are all looking forward to – we will of course go swimming in the city canals!

We hope you will come visit us some day, and you're always welcome to contact some physicists here for a personal tour!
