The IPA has entered into 50th year of its existence. The IPA has played an important role at national level and has
provided a platform for physicists in the country. Presently it has more than 3500 members. In recent years, several
lectures by eminent scientists have been organized at various places in India. The IPA also confers awards to recognize
research and contributions of young and eminent scientists. In a very unique effort, it has also setup the Gender In Physics
Working Group (GIPWG)- with the mandate of co-ordinating national efforts towards gender parity in the Indian physics profession.
I hope the activities of IPA will flourish further with support from all members. I look forward to your suggestions.
I also request your help to spread the reach of IPA for increasing membership and building the corpus. I urge various
chapters to play more active role.
we remember one of the greatest scientists and visionaries of India - Dr. Vikram Sarabahi,
on the occasion of his birth centenary .
