Groups

Be at the heart of the physics community by joining one of the Institute’s member-led Groups.

Joining a group is the means for you as a member to be part of the physics community and to take part in activities in your particular areas of interest.

The Institute has around 50 groups that cover a wide range of subjects including:

  • specialist areas of physics research and its application, such as the High Energy Particle Physics Group or Plasma Physics Group
  • professional aspects of physicists working in industry, such as the Engineering Physics Group
  • wider issues that relate to physics and society like the Higher Education Group or Physics Communicators Group
  • some groups are organised jointly with other societies with similar interests, for example the Polymer Physics Group is a joint group with the Royal Society of Chemistry

What do groups do?
Groups have individual programmes, reflecting the needs of their members. Their activities include:

  • arranging conferences, seminars and workshops for their members and others
  • producing newsletters to keep their members in touch with the latest developments in their field
  • promoting interaction between physicists working in industry and research, providing opportunities for networking and a forum for meeting and discussion
  • awarding bursaries to help research students attend conferences via the Research Student Conference Fund
  • providing information on relevant meetings organised by other bodies
  • awarding prizes in their area

Any queries regarding IOP Groups should be emailed to groups@iop.org.
