Register now for the 2022 Annual General Meeting and Special General Meeting
All IOP members are invited to join us for the 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Special General Meeting (SGM) on 1 September.
At the AGM, members will hear a presentation on the Annual Report and Accounts, vote on the auditors and future membership fees, have the opportunity to ask any questions they might have about the future direction of the IOP, and hear the results of the 2022 Council election.
Following the AGM, an SGM will be held to vote on changes to the Bylaws proposed by Council.
This year the AGM and SGM will be taking place in person, at our offices at 37 Caledonian Road, London, N1 9BU. Make sure you register in advance by the 25 August if you’d like to join us. Find out more information, including how to register, in the AGM and SGM correspondence already sent to you.
Following the AGM and SGM we will be holding an open event from 14:45 – 17:00: Sharing experience across physics silos: The Laplacian and Wave Mechanics.
In every topic branch of physics, and in every sector of society where we come across physics, we encounter mathematical models. In almost every case, we see either the Laplacian or the wave equation. What those equations represent varies from specialism to specialism, but our initial approach is fundamental and forms a significant part of the physics taught in schools.
The event will comprise talks given by specialists in different fields, giving an overview of how they would answer these questions in their context. This will be followed by a discussion session, with a view to sharing experiences and developing ideas. During the discussion session, afternoon tea will be served. Register now.
