About the event

The theme of the event is "Spectroscopy — a window to the heart of the nature" emphasizing the importance of experiments in physics. Several spectroscopical methods provide detailed information on fundamental phenomena and structure of matter. Those are also in continuous use in control and monitoring of our everyday life.

We warmly welcome everyone to the Physics Days 2016 in Oulu!

Participating companies

The Finnish Physical Society

Since 1947, the Finnish Physical Society has advanced public awareness in physics by publishing scientific literature, arranging conferences, and inviting international scholars to Finland to give public lectures on modern Physics. The Finnish Physical Society supports research in physics, and maintains contacts with international and domestic physical associations.

Physics Days 2016 will be the 50th Annual Meeting of the Finnish Physical Society. The registration fee for the members of the Society is essentially lower than the normal prize (Note: a pending membership application at the time of registration is accepted).
