The Institute of Physics supports its members in organising a wide programme of events in all areas of physics, bringing together the community to share research, support learning and make connections. This activity is supported by our special interest groups, who are a community of IOP members with a shared interest in a particular discipline, application, or area of interest, and our Nations and Branches who organise a range of regional talks.  All IOP events are led by members and are open and inclusive.
