The European Physical Society (EPS) is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote physics and physicists in Europe through methods such as physics outreach. Formally established in 1968,[1] its membership includes the national physical societies of 42 countries, and some 3200 individual members. The Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, the world's largest organization of physicists, is a major member.[2] One of its main activities is organizing international conferences. Its magazine is EPL;[3] its other publications include Europhysics News[4] and the European Journal of Physics.[5]

Prizes[edit]

The EPS awards a number of prizes, including the Edison Volta Prize, the EPS Europhysics Prize and the High Energy and Particle Physics Prize.[6]

[edit]

The EPS sponsors conferences other than the Europhysics Conference, like the International Conference of Physics Students in 2011.[7]
