9:00 - 12:40 Tuesday, 27 August 2002
The Young Physicists' Day is a common event of EPS-12 and the International Conference of Physics Students. This will include about 12 oral presentations selected either from the best students' talks of ICPS or from the best posters of the EPS-12 Young Physicists' Poster Competition. Abstracts of ICPS contributions can be found here.Poster contributions submitted for the Young Physicists' Poster Competition will be on display during Monday. Contribution may be concerned with any area of physics (not necessarily linked to one of the symposia). The contribution must be based primarily on the young physicist's own work. Entrants may not be over 35 years of age on 30 August 2002. Intention to participate at the poster competition should be indicated upon abstract submission. Authors will be advised along with the notification on poster presentation acceptance whether or not their contribution has been accepted for inclusion in the competition. All competotors will receive a certificate of participation. On Monday, 26 August a panel of judge will select the winners who will orally present their contribution on Tuesday morning.
