Divisions: Condensed Matter Division
Group Pages
The Condensed Matter Division (CMD) of the European Physical Society, aims to serve its scientific, industrial and educational communities by helping them to obtain the latest information on progress in their specialties and related fields, to gain visibility for their research, to help them interact with their peers and to develop professionally.

The Condensed Matter Division includes several sections focused on specific areas of condensed matter physics:

  • Liquids
  • Low Temperature Physics
  • Magnetism - close collaboration with EMA
  • Semiconductors and Insulators
  • Soft Condensed Matter and Biophysics
  • Structural And Dynamical Properties Of Solids
  • Surfaces And Interfaces

A major activity of CMD and its sections is the organization of quality peer-reviewedconferences and scientific meetings, including the biennial EPS CMD conference, as well as several other major European conferences.

To highlight scientific excellence, CMD also awards the prestigious EPS Europhysics Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Condensed Matter Physics. This prize (formerly the Hewlett Packard and then Agilent Technologies Europhysics Award) has been presented since 1975, and has become one of the most prestigious awards for condensed matter physics in Europe. Many Europhysics Prize winners have subsequently been awarded the Nobel Prize in recognition of their achievements, including in 2007 the Nobel Prize winners both in Physics (Albert Fert and Peter Grünberg) and in Chemistry (Gerhard Ertl).


CMD and the European Magnetism Association join forces


CMD and the European Magnetism Association (EMA) have decided to unite forces as regards structuring and speaking out for the European community of physics activities pertaining to magnetism. While remaining legally separate one from another, it has been agreed that EMA will fulfill the duties of a Magnetism section of CMD:
• EMA delegates a member of its General Council to the board of the Condensed Matter Division
EMA contributes to providing relevant input to CMD, e.g. for organizing the biennial EPS-CMD conference, for prizes or lobbying actions; all CMD events and actions pertaining to magnetism will be organized jointly with EMA;
• the CMD board will be informed of the meetings of the EMA General Council, and be invited to send a delegate, if relevant for the matters discussed;
• EPS - CMD members will benefit from reduced rates for EMA events, such as the European School of Magnetism;
Moreover, you will find links to all EMA / magnetism-related news in the CMD Newsletter.


The 2016 Nobel prize in physics is attributed to the British physicists David Thouless, Duncan Haldane and Michael Kosterlitz
