APS/ICTP-SAIFR Satellite March Meeting

March 5, 2024

ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

Auditorium of IFT-UNESP


To extend the reach and diversity of its annual meetings, the American Physical Society has developed a pilot program of APS Satellite Meetings with the participation of ICTP-SAIFR in Latin America. As part of the APS March Meeting from March 3-8, 2024, ICTP-SAIFR is organizing on March 5 (Tuesday) a 2-hour Satellite Session on Complex Systems that will be broadcast live to all participants of the APS March Meeting, as well as a session on Complex Systems for student/postdoc presentations.

Graduate students and postdocs can apply until February 10, 2024 to give oral presentations or posters at the student-postdoc session on complex systems.

The activities on March 5 will be held in-person in the IFT-UNESP auditorium from 2:30 PM to 7:00 PM.  The complete schedule of sessions of the APS Virtual March Meeting can be found on the APS March Meeting 2024 webpage.

There is no registration fee for participation in the APS/ICTP-SAIFR Satellite Meeting.
