The Conference

This year, the IPT will be composed of two events, the usual tournament you are all familiar with, and the IPT Conference. The two formats are quite independent, and students can participate in either of them or even both! The purpose of this page is to explain the rules of the virtual Conference.

Virtual Conference

This year will also take place the IPT-Conference! It will give all students, no matter if they have qualified for the international stage or not, the chance to present their work in a typical conference-style format, gaining valuable experience in the world of scientific communication.

Each presenter will be given a 20 minute time slot, which is divided into 10 minutes for presenting, followed by 8 minutes for questions from the audience and the jury, with 2 minutes buffer time for technical difficulties. Everyone can participate as audience to view the virtual Conference presentations, and join in to ask questions and discuss the physics of the presented problem.

It will take place after the tournament, during one 3-hour session from 13 to 16 UTC on Saturday the 3rd of July. Multiple presentations will happen in parallel in different rooms based on the number of registrations.
