From the President's Desk

Prof. S. Ramakrishnan (2021- )

The IPA has been an active platform for physics community in India for past 50 years and has facilitated interactions through many different channels. The pandemic has opened up new opportunities of networking through online interactions and IPA has fully engaged with this. The IPA50 webinar series, started in Sept 2020, is an example of the same.

The IPA plans to initiate new programs to attract and engage the young researchers. The liaising with physics societies of other nations will be actively pursued to enhance interactions of Indian physicists with the global community. I look forward to your suggestions, support and engagement in this endeavour. Together we can keep IPA academically vibrant in the coming years.

I also take this opportunity to request all members and friends to donate generously to IPA jubilee fund, in order to support various IPA activities.
