IYPT 2019 – Open to the Public!!

The conference opened on June 12 with a Special Session open to the public celebrating the International Year of the Periodic Table with 3 lectures by Eric Scerri (UCLA), Lars Öhrström (Chalmers) and Dirk Rudolph (Lund).

In connection to this Special Session, a separate poster session (with poster prizes!) covering elements discovered in Sweden was presented with contributions from (most) Swedish host universities having delegates at the conference.

You can view all the posters (linked to .jpg) below including the poster prize winner Uppsala Univ. (Scandium) and runner-up Linköping Univ. (Cerium).
