Welcome Words

From the President of the IPS

On behalf of the Israel Physical Society (IPS), I welcome you to the 2018 Annual Conference at the Hebrew University. The organizing committee, chaired by Prof. Nadav Katz, put together an exciting program, and I thank him for his efforts.

This year the IPS will honor four members who were elected as the first fellows - Guy Deutscher (TAU), David Horn (TAU), Hagai Netzer (TAU), Joshua Zak (Technion). The ceremony will take place during the morning plenary session, please come and honor our new fellows.

As always, we will honor excellent young researchers and graduate students at the Prize and Candle Lighting ceremony in the evening, and I encourage you all to come and celebrate.   

The public lecture will be given by Prof. Amnon Shashua of Mobileye.

The General Assembly will close the program tonight.  

I wish us all an exciting and rewarding meeting.

Yosi Avron,
