Position Statement on inclusivity, diversity and gender balance at the International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors (ICPS)

The 35th International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors (ICPS 2020) Organising Committee, along with our hosts; International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) and the University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney), are committed to improving equality, diversity and inclusion across our research and discipline.  Therefore, we have endeavoured to build a program that embraces different perspectives on the basis of professional experience, cultural background, disability, gender and sexual orientation or identity, to ensure our delegates have the greatest opportunity for collaboration and innovation.
