Industry Day

Events about industrial and applied physics, taking place March 4 - 7, 2024.

Industry Day offers unique programming that focuses on industrial and applied physics research and careers. Enjoy discovering new methods for gathering information about the world, advances in how we organize and utilize data, frontiers in energy, and innovations that impact technologies from self-driving cars to aerospace.

Industry Day events

Hear from speakers from a wide range of technical fields, meet new collaborators, connect again with longtime colleagues, and expand your view of the exciting work undertaken by physicists in non-academic fields. As part of Industry Day, you can look forward to a variety of sessions and events:

  • Scientific sessions
    Explore scientific sessions sponsored by the Forum on Industrial and Applied Physics (FIAP).
  • Industry Day Office Hour at the APS Village
    Tuesday, March 5, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
    Hear about all the events at March Meeting that highlight exciting research in industrial and applied physics and learn how to make the most of your membership as an industrial physicist.
  • Student lunch with the experts
    Enjoy lunch and small-setting dialogue with a non-academic physicist to learn about their career and ask questions. Sign-up is required and occurs on-site in Minneapolis.

    Hear from FIAP members at the event:
