General International Conferences of the Balkan Physical Union

The BPU Conferences are a series of triennial general physics conference organized under the auspices of the Balkan Physical Union (BPU). They have been holding since 1991. The BPU conferences which are supposed to cover the most important results and trends of physics are usually attended by about 800 scientists, educators and engineers involved in research, education and applications of physics.

The Conferences are open to all scientists from the Balkan countries working in physics and related areas. Participants from outside the Balkans are also welcome. Participation of young physicists and students is highly appreciated.

International Student Conferences of the Balkan Physical Union

The conference is open to all physics undergraduate and graduate students from all the European and Balkan countries. The aim of the conference is to create a friendly and scientific atmosphere between the students. Lectures are given, by the known physicists from Balkanian countries, from a basic level to make the recent developments more familiar to all students. The oral and poster presentations of the students are generally from known or popular physics subjects. The aim of the oral and poster presentation is to encourage the students do research and practise on giving presentations.
