On behalf of the Australian Institute of Physics and the New South Wales Branch, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 20th Australian Institute of Physics Congress to be held at the University of New South Wales from 9-13 December 2012. Additionally, the Australian Optical Society and Engineers Australia wish to highlight the co-location of the 37th Australian Conference on Optical Fibre Technology (ACOFT).
The AIP/ACOFT 2012 Congress will be the biggest and most diverse scientific meeting of the Australian physics calendar in 2012. The AIP Congress attracts many of Australia’s finest physicists plus a number of prominent overseas attendees. It provides a forum for discussions within specialist physics topic areas and opportunities for physicists from academia, government, industry and the commercial sector to keep up to date in areas outside their core interests. The Congress brings together approximately 20 special interest groups and, as was achieved in 2010, the incorporation of ACOFT will attract specialists working on diverse research applications of optical fibre technology.
The four day program includes plenary lectures, parallel sessions, catered poster sessions, an exhibition, public lecture, industry forum, welcome reception and the option of attending the Congress dinner, all of which provide a variety of settings for delegates to increase and update their knowledge, catch up with old friends and colleagues and create valuable networks.
We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney later this year and to your valued participation in the AIP/ACOFT 2012 Congress.
