In order to contribute to the training of young scientists working in the energy sector
or intending to do so, the European and the Italian Physical Societies
started the Joint EPS-SIF International School on Energy.
The 4th Course, "Advances in basic energy issues", was organized in 2017 in Varenna.
These proceedings will be published soon both on paper and on-line open-access in EPJ Web of Conferences.
The prestigious prize "Enrico Fermi" has been awarded starting from 2001. The prize is yearly awarded to one or more Members of the Society who particularly honoured physics with their discoveries. A commission made of experts appointed by SIF, CNR, INAF, INFN, INGV, INRIM and Centro Fermi selects the winner/s among a list of candidates and sends the proposal to the Council of SIF for final approval.
Edited by the Council of the Italian Physical Society
On the occasion of the 80th anniversary of Ettore Majorana's disappearance, SIF published a new edition of the volume "Ettore Majorana - Scientific Papers" where Majorana’s papers are reproduced in the language in which they were originally written by the author, followed by their English translation.
This book is a contribution to the "THREE DAYS" that the University of Bologna has dedicated to Science, Technology and Culture to reach a wide audience.
This year, on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of Enrico Fermi's Nobel Prize in Physics (1938), the SIF has decided to organise a new edition of the International Symposium "Passion for Physics" to be held in the beautiful Aula Fermi of Villa Monastero, in Varenna, Lake Como.
