International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Commissions contacts

The IUPAP commissions promote the objectives of the Union within their areas of expertise and provide advice to IUPAP on the activities and needs of the subfields of physics they represent.

There are 18 IUPAP commissions and the UK and Ireland have physicists represented on 15 of them.

This page contains the contact information for the current UK and Irish IUPAP commission representatives. If you would like to contact the relevant commission representatives, please use the information in the table below.
