AIP Industrial Physics Forums

The Industrial Physics Forum (IPF) brings together research managers and decision makers from industry, academia, and government, who seek to keep abreast of research and policy issues affecting the physical sciences community.

Organized by the Corporate Associates of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), the IPF features invited-speaker sessions that complement AIP Member Society meetings. Experts from across the field discuss new applications of physics, product developments, and other opportunities for science in today’s economic environment.

The IPF offers participants opportunities to learn about innovations in the field, to interface with the people driving them, and to strategize about directions for future economic and scientific progress.
