The Israel Physical Society


The Israel Physical Society is a voluntary non-profit society which acts to stimulate research and education in the various disciplines of physics. The organization is open to all scientists in the field (not only from Israel), including students, and professionals/individuals who support research and education in physics. Those who accept and wish to support the aforementioned objectives of the IPS are encouraged to become members. Joining the IPS has never been easier.
