IPT 2018 : place, dates and preselection process

October 17th 2017

Dear all,

October is on us already, and you have not received any news about the location and dates of the IPT 2018. Despite this long silence from our side, we have been working on it since several months and this is actually what this message is about.

Organizing an IPT edition is no simple task, yet the previous Local Organizing Committees (LOCs) all succeeded in making the tournament a more welcoming, pleasant and famous event up to the point that it is now recognized worldwide as a leading competition for the university students. The other side of the coin is that hosting the IPT is now more demanding than ever, both in terms of manpower and financial support, up to the point that we are in shortage of candidates to host the future editions. Which brings us to now.

The 9th International Physicists’ Tournament, IPT 2017  will be held in Sweden, at Chalmers University of Technology, in the city of Gothenburg, between 8th and 13th of April 2017. To select team from Iran we invite you to participate in IRPT 2017 which is held on December 22-23, 2017 by AYIMI cooperation with IMST.  

The last announcement from IPT President, Vivien: 

Dear IOC, representative, team-leaders and participants,

The registrations for the IPT2017 are now closed, and I am happy to announce that 21 teams are registered. However, as we have only 18 seats available, according to the rules your team will have  to engage in a preselection process, organised as follow:
Each team must complete a written report outlining the solution to one problem selected from a possible two (four, only if your team won a national selection). The selected problems are:
Lego Tower (number 3)Tea with Honey (number 15) Handy Glider (number 1 - only if your team won a national selection)Light-driven Vehicle (number 10 - only if your team won a national selection)The complete description of these problems can be found on the website. The reports must be handled in a .pdf format, with the text arranged in a single or double columns and cannot exceed 5 pages (except the title page), including plots and/or pictures. The team is free to enclose its own experimental material (videos, computer programs, etc... all in total smaller than 10Mb or links to online material) and to cite it properly in the report.  The teams have until January 15th, 23h59 UTC to send their report only to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. (for anonymity reasons). Each report will be judged on the basis of three main criteria: 1) does it give a plausible physical answer to the initial question, 2) is the approach innovative, and is it supported by experiment and/or theory, 3) has the problem been explored in sufficient depth, i.e. have all the possible approaches been considered. The form of the report (layout, phrasing, presentation) is also important. It should be written in a clear and concise manner.  Each report will be anonymised before being distributed amongst the jury members. To ease the anonymisation process, if unnecessary please avoid any explicit mention of your team's university or origin, except on the title page. The qualified teams will be announced at the latest by January 22nd, 23h59 UTC. Each jury member can grade all the reports except the ones from his/her own country's teams, if any. Each report will be graded by the same number of jury members. The teams will be ranked according to their report and receive some feedback about their work. The ranking will serve as the basis for seeds in the tournament. I remind you that this preselection process is free. The registration fees will have to be paid only by the teams qualified for the international competition, and will be due to the LOC by January 31st. You can find these informations, as well as an example of preselection report on this page.  Should you have any more questions about this process, please do not hesitate to ask me. 

AYIMI asks students who are willing send their solutions directly to IPT and the selected members are asked to organize their participation in IPT 2017 by themselves.

A list of 17 problems is created every year for the IPT.  You have until the tournament in April  to prepare a presentation of these problems. You can favor a theoretical or experimental approach, but keep in mind that a good physicist handles both aspects !Then, in April, all teams gather to compare their solutions! During this week, you and your team will take part in several rounds of so-called Physics Fights. During each Physics Fight, 3 teams confront each other. Fight after fight, they play the roles of Presenter, Opponent and Reviewer.
