Nordic Physics Days 2021

4-6 August, Uppsala, Sweden


The conference is organized by the National Physical Societies in the Nordic countries and hosted by the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University. It will be held digitally 4-6 August 2021.

The Nordic Physics Days is an international conference that welcomes students, researchers and teachers. The program includes plenary contributions from outstanding researchers and speakers, presenting exciting research findings in a variety of physics fields. In addition, parallel sessions will be dedicated to the meetings of the different sections of the Physical Societies.

An EPS historical Site will be inaugurated at the end of the conference. This event should have been organized last year for celebrating the 100-year jubilee of the Swedish Physical Society, founded in Uppsala in 1920. The nominated site used to host the laboratory of Anders Jonas Ångström (1814 – 1874) who made significant contributions to several areas of physics, but is most known as one of the founders of optical spectroscopy. He introduced a unit for electromagnetic wavelength, equivalent to 0.1 nanometres, which later was adopted as an international standard under the name Ångström.

Due to the pandemic situation and the uncertainty it entails, we have decided that Nordic Physics Days 2021 will take place digitally. More information will come later.
