EPS Letter to President Juncker on the Reallocation of Horizon 2020 Funds

Posted By Administration, 17 February 2015
Updated: 17 February 2015
The European Physical Society (EPS) has written a letter to the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, expressing concern over the re-allocation of funds from the Horizon 2020 budget.

Research and development are key drivers of prosperity, and reducing Europe’s capacity to finance frontier research jeopardizes its ability to develop the future technology that will be important for economic growth, job creation, and addressing societal challenges.  Cutting the Horizon 2020 budget is sending the wrong message to the scientific communities who are essential for Europe's future.  

To see the letter and the attached statement, please see http://eps.site-ym.com/resource/resmgr/policy/EPS2015_LetterToJCJuncker.pdf.

IYL 2015: call for paper for the Fiat Lux conference

Posted By Administration, 17 February 2015
Updated: 17 February 2015

Dear colleague,
Within the framework of the UNESCO activities for 2015 – The International Year of Light, you are cordially invited to attend and submit memories to the:

International Scientific and Theological Conference
FIAT-LUX (LET THERE BE LIGHT), Roma (Italy), June 3-5 2015.

In the common language light means knowledge: “I had a lightning”! In nature, light has a larger dimension, regrouping together three main functionalities: light means energy, light means information, light means also time rhythm. All of them are somehow different expressions of “knowledge”: in fact, getting information and communicate means to know the surrounding, acquire energy from such knowledge and start associated actions. Physics and metaphysics have always analysed the surrounding nature from points of view which might be different but never opposite. FIAT LUX wants to be the place where scientists, philosophers and theologians will get together to discuss on the LIGHT, trying to find similar languages and common understanding.

Deadline for abstract submission is 15 March 2015. 

Visit the conference website at:   http://www.fiatluxconference.com

IYL2015 EPS Young Minds Activity Grants

Posted By Administration, 06 January 2015
Dear Members,

Young Minds is providing International Year of Light (IYL) Activity
Grants to support YM Sections in developing local community events and
activities that highlight the critical role that light plays in our
daily lives.
The International Year of Light in 2015 is a unique opportunity to
showcase optics and its impact on our daily lives to world, and students
are encouraged to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

EPS Young Minds Sections can apply up to 500€. This grant has to be
considered an Extra Grant with the respect to the 1000€ ordinary YM Grants.
The deadline for the application is January 15th.

To be eligible, each YM Section must be in good standing to apply for grants.
This means that its members are members of EPS or one of its national
societies. Sections need to have an annual election, around September,
to renew their officers.

Funding decisions were made based on the following criteria:
- potential to raise awareness of optics and its impact in daily life
- potential to reach a large audience
- clarity and structure of the project
- clear timeline and budget.

Don't loose this opportunity!

Launch Ceremony of the International Year of Light

Posted By Administration, 19 December 2014

Over a thousand participants will converge on Paris for the two day event, and speakers and attendees will include international diplomats and decision-makers, Nobel laureates, CEOs, and science and industry leaders from across the globe. After high-level opening addresses by international political leaders, a series of keynote lectures, symposia and round-tables will cover areas of basic science, innovative lighting solutions for society, light pollution, emerging trends in photonics, the Einstein Centenary, the role of light-based technologies in addressing global challenges, light in art and culture, the history of science, and science policy.

Keynote speakers from the light science community will include Nobel laureates Ahmed Zewail, Steven Chu, Zhores Alferov, William Phillips and Serge Haroche, pioneering and inspiring scientists who will speak on a diverse range of topics: light and life, energy, telecommunications, and the fundamental physics of light-matter interactions.  The programme will also include contributions by: Gianfranco Cardinal Ravasi (President of the Pontifical Council for Culture); renowned Mexican architect Gustavo Avilés; the CEO of Royal Philips Lighting Eric Rondolat; Harry Verhaar (President of the Global Off-Grid Lighting Association); Alessandro Farini (Expert on Human Vision and Art); Thanh-Nga Trinh Tran, (Vietnam Vascular Anomalies Center); Linda Wamune (SunnyMoney and SolarAid); Martin Aufmuth (from onedollarglasses.org); Illac Diaz (aliteroflight.org); Andrew Forbes representing the Photonics Initiative of South Africa; Zohra Ben Lakhdar (UNESCO L’Oreal Prize Winner); and many other leading scientists and representatives from international NGOs. The Opening Ceremony will also see leading science and cultural heritage organization 1001 Inventions launch their accompanying international campaign to promote the life and works of the pioneering scientist from the Golden Age of Muslim Civilization, Ibn al-Haytham.

The programme will also feature several cultural and musical interludes, and the outside of the UNESCO Building in Paris will be lit by Finnish light artist Kari Kola with a display entitled “Light is Here” which will reflect the powerful elements of the Northern lights.
