March Meeting attendees greet each other at the 2022 welcome reception

APS March Meeting is an annual scientific research conference for over 13,000 physicists and the broader scientific community to convene and share the latest physics research. The event has both in-person and virtual attendance options.

From quantum physics to soft condensed matter to superconductivity and so much more, the scope of research presented represents a wide range of topics and areas of focus. Topic categories are created by the membership community within participating APS units.

The yearly Call for Abstracts (August – October) allows undergrad and graduate students, early careerists, and established physicists to submit their research abstract and present in an oral or poster presentation.

March Meeting provides experiences to build lifelong connections at the:

  • Evening Networking Receptions
  • Future of Physics Days: Undergrad Events
  • Industry Days: Events for Industrial and Applied Physics
  • “Meet the Editors” Journals and Publishing Events
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Events
  • Career Panel Luncheons
  • LGBTQ+ Roundtable
  • Graduate School Fair
  • Poster Sessions
  • Job Fair

Join us in 2024 for an extra special week as we celebrate the 125th anniversary of APS.
