Programme of the congress

We are very sorry to inform you that due to the situation related to the coronavirus epidemic, the Rector of the University of Warsaw decided to cancel open events (conferences, symposia, open lectures, artistic events and others) until April 30, 2020.

Therefore, the Organizing Committee sadly decided to postpone the XLVI Extraordinary Congress of Polish Physicists to a later date of October 16-18, 2020. We will provide additional information on how to deal with this difficult situation soon.

All lectures will be in Polish.
