FYSICA is the annual physics conference of the Netherlands' Physical Society (NNV). Each year the NNV organises FYSICA in cooperation with a Dutch university, in 2017 with University of Groningen. So every year FYSICA takes place in another city, according to a roster.

FYSICA 2017 was in De Oosterpoort in Groningen on Friday April 7, 2017. It turned out to be a very successful edition. To get an impression, go to the homepage of the website of the NNV, where several (10) news items are dedicated to FYSICA 2017.

FYSICA 2018 will be in Utrecht, most probably at April 13, 2018. Save the date!

All physicists (students, teachers, physicists working in industry, academia, public service) are warmly invited to attend the FYSICA-meeting. FYSICA 2017 was an excellent opportunity to meet each other and to network.


It takes only 10 minutes to walk from Groningen Central Station to De Oosterpoort. The plenary program of FYSICA 2017 took place in the Kleine Zaal of De Oosterpoort in Groningen. The registration desk of FYSICA 2017, were you could pick up your badge, was situated near the foyer of the Kleine Zaal (Small Hall).

After entering the main entrance of De Oosterpoort, screens and signs guided you to the registration desk. The FYSICA-market and coffee- and lunch breaks took place in the foyer of the Kleine Zaal.

The site of the Oosterpoort offers the possibility to take a look in the building.
