EPEC-1, the first
European Physics Education Conference

The European Physics Education Conference series is an EPS conference series.
The first conference will take place in Bad Honnef, just outside Bonn in Germany
4-7 July 2005.

  1. The conference is aimed at teachers of physics in schools and universities.
  2. Spread across the four days of the conference will be the following activities
    (the programme is still being arranged, so some of the details may change).
  3. The conference will also feature a social programme, including a conference dinner.
  4. Conference fees, which include the cost of proceedings, are being kept as low as
    possible to maximise the opportunity for school teachers to attend.
  5. Publicity for the conference will use all the usual channels, but additional efforts will
    be made to draw the conference to the attention of Europešs school physics teachers.
    The cooperation of professional teacher organizations and national physical societies
    is being especially sought and will be particularly valued in meeting this important
    challenge.
  6. When fully established, the EPEC series is expected to become the main European
    gathering for those interested in the teaching of physics at all levels. To this end plans
    EPEC-1 have been formulated in consultation with other interested parties, including
    GIREP and the International Association of Physics Students.
