The University of Canterbury will host the 19th Conference of the New Zealand Institute of Physics, incorporating Physikos, the New Zealand Physics Teachers Conference. The venue is the brand new Ernest Rutherford building in the Regional Science and Innovation Centre, the centrepiece of transformation of the UC campus in the post earthquake era.

As part of Physikos, local and international educators will share their experiences and teaching strategies. Physikos is the major professional development opportunity for New Zealand physics educators.

There will be an exciting lineup of speakers on cutting edge physics pedagogy and research. Invited speakers will give talks accessible to all attendees, while providing food for thought. The new teaching labs will be used to share demonstrations, displays, posters.

Climate physics, space physics, astrophysics, nanotechnology, quantum optics, medical imaging technology will all be covered. There will be two public lectures, a welcome reception, and a banquet included in the registration fee. 

Explore the Canterbury region - the Alps, Banks Peninsula, Hanmer Springs, ... pre- or post-conference.
