As a national physical society, and member of the European Physical Society, our goal is to promote physics and support physicists. For this purpose, we organise a range of activities and membership benefits.
On these pages you will find information about membership, and about the BPS general meeting. Also archived issued of B-Phy, our electronic magazine, can be downloaded, and there is a job section for those of you seeking employment.
The EPS Achievement Award is given annually by the European Physical Society for excellent contributions to the promotion and development of: EPS Divisions or their Sections; EPS Groups; EPS Committees. This award recognises activities and achievements, which have favoured EPS internal collaboration and effectively promoted the image and the impact of the EPS within the scientific community, policy makers and other stakeholders.
Jozef Ongena, from the Plasma Physics Laboratory of the Royal Military Academy in Brussels, and also President of the Belgian Physical Society, has received this award for his outstanding contributions to the EPS in his various functions over a long period of time and for his enthusiasm in promoting the image and the impact of the EPS with the scientific community, policy makers and other stakeholders.
The General Scientific Meeting 2016 of the Belgian Physical Society will be organized on wednesday May 18th and will be hosted by the UGent. This conference brings together physicists in Belgium of different sectors and different scientific subdisciplines. A diverse program is offered including plenary talks, a young scientist oral presentation competition, and a best poster competition.

CMD26 - Condensed Matter in Groningen is an international conference, organized by the Condensed Matter Division of the European Physical Society, covering all aspects of condensed matter physics, including soft condensed matter, biophysics, materials science, quantum physics and quantum simulators, low temperature physics, quantum fluids, strongly correlated materials, semiconductor physics, magnetism, surface and interface physics, electronic, optical and structural properties of materials. The scientific programme will consist of a series of plenary and semi-plenary talks and Mini-colloquia. Within each Mini-colloquium, there will be invited lectures, oral contributions and posters.

Physics in Medicine is the first open access journal focusing on the application of theoretical and practical physics to medicine, physiology and biology! More info on topics covered and paper submission on www.journals.elsevier.com/physics-in-medicine.
In 1911 the forward-looking industrialist Ernest Solvay called together the first Solvay council at the Hotel Metropole in Brussels. From all of Europe a select group of top scientists gathered in Brussels to think about problems in quantum mechanics and physics. This ushered in the era of international meetings and played a crucial role in the development of quantum mechanics. Earlier this year, the crucial role of the Solvay councils was recognised by the EPS when, in collaboration with the BPS, the Hotel Metropole was designated as important historical physics site.
