March Meeting attendees pose with the new APS logo

American Physical Society March Meeting is a scientific research conference that brings together more than 13,000 physicists from around the world to showcase their work, connect with others, and discover groundbreaking physics research. Attendees joined us in 2024 for an extra special week as we celebrated the 125th anniversary of APS.

We look forward to welcoming our attendees and presenters, as well as seeing new attendees and presenters, to March Meeting 2025 in Anaheim, California.
