NZIP & Physikos 2019 Conference

The University of Canterbury will host the 19th Conference of the New Zealand Institute of Physics, incorporating Physikos, the New Zealand Physics Teachers Conference.

The venue is the brand new Ernest Rutherford building in the Regional Science and Innovation Centre, the centrepiece of transformation of the UC campus in the post earthquake era. As part of Physikos, local and international educators will share their experiences and teaching strategies.

Physikos is the major professional development opportunity for New Zealand physics educators. At a time when the world is facing multiple challenges, the from-the-first-principles nature of physics is more relevant than ever. Come to Canterbury to be inspired, so that you may inspire the generations that will shape our future!

There will be an exciting line up of speakers on cutting edge physics pedagogy and research. The new teaching labs will be turned over to you to share demonstrations, displays, posters. Invited speakers will give talks accessible to all attendees, while providing food for thought. Climate physics, space physics, astrophysics, nanotechnology, quantum optics, medical imaging technology, it will all be covered. There will be two public lectures, a welcome reception, and a banquet included in the registration fee.

Late abstract & workshop submissions are still being accepted. We encourage you to consider submitting! The deadline is the 28th of February but if you miss it please let us know by emailing nzip2019@confer.co.nz as we are very keen to hear from educators.
