Due to the corona pandemic, FYSICA 2021 took place in Zoom on April 16th. We celebrated the centennial of the NNV with a great program: excellent speakers varying from young scientists to Physica Prize Laureate Daniel Bonn and two Nobel Prize Laureates Reinhard Genzel and Roger Penrose. The NNV received the title royal out of the hands of the commissioner of the King of Noord-Holland. FYSICA 2021 ended with a fantastic physics pubquiz. Recordings available.

 

FYSICA 2020

FYSICA 2020 was planned at University of Twente on April 17th. Due to the corona pandemic we had the change FYSICA into an online event very fast. It turned out to be a great success. Over 600 people attended the meeting in Zoom. We had wonderful speakers: Nobel Prize Laureate Didier Queloz and Physica Prize Laureate Martin van Hecke. The Young Speakers Contest had excellent finalists, so the audience had a hard time to vote for one of them. The recordings are available.

The main stage of FYSICA 2019 was in a purpose-built pavilion on Amsterdam Science Park. This year's edition attracted well over 500 physicists, who enjoyed two rounds of tours to 9 institutes at the park at lunchtime. Most stayed for the luscious specially-discounted Suriname-style buffet and evening show. Many excellent speakers presented their work in between the opening lecture by Physica Prize winner Kobus Kuibers and Nobel Prize laureate Gérard Mourou in the early evening.
