We are excited to announce the IX international physics conference in honor of F.Pianca!
The original idea of this conference is to let the students and young scientists meet each other, see how they look like and learn which science problems are of current interest abroad or in Latvia. We do feel that young Latvian scientists do not meet their colleagues from other countries often enough. Sometimes we do not even know other Latvians working in the same field in another country. The conference should bring together young Latvian scientists working abroad and in Latvia and foreign scientists interested in the scientific life of Latvia.
The first such conference was held in Riga in 1997 thanks to enthusiastic students that were developing their careers in science abroad. They did not want to lose contact with their colleagues working in Latvia and different other countries and enjoyed informal discussions about science. We want to re-establish this conference.
Despite the desire to meet you all in person, this year the conference will be organized remotely from 21st till 22nd December.
The conference ("workshop" may be a more appropriate title) will be pretty informal, as was the whole life of F. Pianca.
The talks will be 20-30 minutes long. Time for questions will be not strictly limited.
Who is F. Pianca?!
Where can we meet Latvian scientists in the world?
What scientific questions young Latvian scientists are trying to answer?
Maybe there are some collaboration opportunities?
Attend the conference and find it out!
The conference is FREE of charge.
The official language of the conference will be English.
