The 35th International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors 2020 (ICPS), is hosted by the International Unions of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) and the University of New South Wales, Sydney (UNSW).
The hosts, IUPAP and UNSW, promote the exchange of information and views among the members of the international and national scientific community in the field of physics. For more information about the ICPS 2020 hosts, view the below summaries.
International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP)
The mission of International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) is to assist in the worldwide development of physics, to foster international cooperation in physics, and to help in the application of physics toward solving problems of concern to humanity. IUPAP was established in 1922 in Brussels with 13 member countries and the first General Assembly was held in 1923 in Paris.
The aims of the Union are:
To stimulate and promote international cooperation in physics;
To sponsor suitable international meetings and to assist organising committees;
To foster the preparation and the publication of abstracts of papers and tables of physical constants;
To promote international agreements on other use of symbols, units, nomenclature and standards;
To foster free circulation of scientists; to encourage research and education.
The University of New South Wales (UNSW)
The University of New South Wales (UNSW) is one of Australia’s leading research and teaching universities. UNSW takes pride in the broad range and high quality of its teaching programs, which gain strength and currency from high-quality research activities, strong industry links and international nature. UNSW has strong regional and global engagement and is creating an academic environment where outstanding students and scholars from around the world can be inspired to excel in their programs of study and research. Partnerships with both local and global communities allow UNSW to share knowledge, debate and research outcomes.
