The Swiss Physical Society (SPS) would like to bring together all scientists, physicists and teachers that work in or are connected to Switzerland. Our objective is to defend the interests of the physicists community at large and to sensitize the public to the increasingly important role that physics plays in our hi-tech society.

With roughly 1200 members, the SPS is the largest member of the “Swiss Academy of Sciences” (SCNAT) and, since 2001, it belongs to the “Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences” (SATW) as well. The SPS is also national member of the “European Physical Society” (EPS), which represents more than 130’000 physicists from all over Europe.

Your advantages as a member of the SPS:

  • You regularly receive the "Europhysics News"
  • You regularly receive the "SPS Communications"
  • You receive invitations to special events of the SPS
  • You profit from reduced conference fees at events of various partner societies (i.e. DPG, APS, ...)
