In order to promote closer contact, The Institute of Physics and the Chinese Physical Society have a special agreement which allows for each society to send a delegate to a major conference or meeting organised by the partner society, and to exchange information on their programmes and events. Both societies exchange conference proceeding, reports and membership magazines.

On 7 December 2012 a workshop on nanophotonics and metamaterials was organised by the IOP and the Chinese Physical Society.

The workshop’s programme, along with the presentations given can be viewed and downloaded here.
