The forthcoming XXXIV Biannual Meeting of the Royal Spanish Society of Physics and 23rd Iberian Encounter for physics education will take place in Valencia from 15th to 19th of July, 2013.
The previous editions have undoubtedly set the bar high, both in the organization and the quality of presentations and general activities. In spite of the current difficult economic situation, it is our will to carry out aReunion Bienal and Encuentro Ibérico according to the expectations. Specialized working groups are invited to arrange their symposia with the usual quality shown in the previous years. We also want to reach outstanding scientific excellence in the plenary sessions and round tables, with distinguished scientists of national and international recognition.
We first count on the valuable support from the RSEF itself,alma mater of the event. Moreover, the University of Valencia has offered its institutional and logistic support as the location of most of the planned activities. A plenary session will take place at the Museum of Science, Príncipe Felipe, located at the emblematic Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias. Let us also mention that we will enjoy a delicious banquet at theBalneario de las Arenas, on the beach under the moonlight.
Our commitment is to maintain the level of quality and excellence in conferences and parallel sessions, encouraging the participation of young researchers. We neither want to forget the technological application of physics and its environmental implications, by promoting the presence in the meeting of enterprises, associations, etc.
Another important goal is to broaden the outreach of our meeting to the society in general. One should not forget that science is culture, and our duty is to show and publicize science beyond the academic and professional limits of a pure scientific and educational encounter.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee I would like to cordially invite you to register and participate in the forthcoming Biannual Meeting of the RSEF and Encuentro Ibérico.
“No te quedes a la Luna de Valencia” (An old Spanish proverb meaning that, when approaching the medieval walls of the city in the evening, one should speed up before the gates were closed, under the risk of remaining outside the walls just looking at the Valencian moonlight) and come to Valencia. We are waiting for you with open arms.
