IUPAP travel awards
IUPAP granted a total of 6000 Euros for participants from developing countries to aid travel expenses. A maximum of 350 Euros will be available for a single participant depending on the availability of the IUPAP grant and the quality of the contribution (proposal abstract) the participant makes to the conference. Therefore, the travel grants will be competitive and the IUPAP travel awards committee will decide the awardees. Approved travel reimbursements will be paid in cash during the conference and not before in any circumstances. If an awardee does not attend the conference then the first person in the waiting list will receive the travel award. Applications will start after the announcement of the accepted proposal abstracts.
Developing Countries are determined according to World Bank's most recent list of 'low income' and 'lower middle income' countries. Participants coming from these countries are eligible for the IUPAP travel awards. In order to reach the list of eligible countries please click here.
ICPE Medal goes to Prof. Redish
Professor Edward F. (Joe) Redish has been selected to receive the International Commission of Physics Education (ICPE) Medal for 2012.
This medal is awarded by the International Commission of Physics Education (IUPAP Commission C-14) "…to recognize outstanding contributions to physics teaching of a kind that transcends national boundaries. The ICPE medal recipient should have fulfilled two criteria: the contributions to physics education should have extended over a considerable number of years; and the contributions should be international in their scope and influence."
Redish will receive the medal at the World Conference on Physics Education, Istanbul, July 2012.
