I’d like to share with you some important news about a major new initiative of the American Physical Society. APS is piloting a tiered pricing structure for in-person and virtual 2023 March and April APS Meeting registrations to ensure price equity for physicists worldwide. A webpage about the initiative features full details, including benefits to the global physics community and the process APS used for developing the pricing structure.
APS strives to be a welcoming professional community allowing physicists from around the world to connect with one another – a welcoming global hub. Equity in registration price underscores the Society’s appreciation and respect for the diverse international physics community.
The new pricing structure is based on GDP per capita and World Bank classifications. Physicists residing in Lower-Income countries (LICs), Lower-Middle-Income countries (LMICs), and Upper-Middle-Income countries (UMICs) may register for the 2023 APS March and April Meetings at the following scaled tiers:
– Residents in LICs and LMICs may register at an 89% discount.
– Residents in UMICs may register at a 72% discount.
The registration webpages on the APS website will automatically apply discounts based on a home country.
APS urges the physics community to help the Society share this news through its international networks, so that more physicists from across the globe can participate in APS meetings.
