Welcome at the Austrian Physical Society!
On this website, you may find, along with general news and announcements, various scientific news and reports, announcements of the annual meeting to come, of other events, current activities, awards and jobs of interest for physicists and related scientists and engineers, information on the OePG itself and on the awards granted by the OePG or its sub-organizations. You may apply for a membership at the OePG here, or edit the data of your membership. The archive of the OePG holds expired announcements and older reports, including those copies of the OePG's periodical, <Physik|AT>, that are still available electronically. A collection of links pertinent to physics concludes our offer.
A few pages under the headings "News and Announcements" and "Archive" hold information that is restricted to active members of the Austrian Physical Society. Members must have logged in with their names or member numbers and their OePG passwords to get access to these pages.
We offer the contents of this website alternatively in English and German. However, some contents whose translation was not possible yet or is not practical altogether are presented in one language only, usually German.
