The Conference

This year, the IPT will be composed of two separate events, the usual tournament you are all familiar with, and the IPT Conference. The two formats are quite independent, and students can participate in either of them or even both! The purpose of this page is to explain the rules of the virtual Conference.

The Virtual Conference

The new great addition of this year will be the IPT-Conference! It will give all students, no matter if they have qualified for the international stage or not, the chance to present their work in a typical conference-style format, gaining valuable experience in the world of scientific communication.

Each presenter will be given a 20 minute time slot, which is divided into 10 minutes for presenting, followed by 8 minutes for questions from the audience, with 2 minutes buffer time for technical difficulties. Everyone can participate as audience to view the virtual Conference presentations, and join in to ask questions and discuss the physics of the presented problem.

Both reporter and observers can join the Zoom meeting following this link:

There will be 5 different sessions of three days, covering all possible timezones. It will take place after the tournament, starting from Monday the 28th of September. Following is the final schedule:

Registration (closed)

You can register individually following this link, until the 15th of August 2020. Based on the number of registrations, we will determine the number of allotted time slots for each presenter.
