The Australian Institute of Physics is an organisation dedicated to promoting the role of Physics in research, education, industry and the community.


The AIP Summer Meeting was established in 2017 as the biennial meeting of the physics community in Australia.

The AIP Summer Meeting takes place in odd-numbered years and is an inexpensive meeting targeted at Australian-based professional scientists, academics, post-doctoral researchers and PhD students.

By comparison, the AIP Congress takes place in even-numbered years and features many keynote and plenary talks given by high-profile speakers.

Both the AIP Congress and the AIP Summer Meeting always take place in the first full week of December.
