Every year, the theoretical competition Physics Leagues Across Numerous Countries for Kick-ass Students (PLANCKS) is organised by the International association of Physics Students (IAPS). For the 2021 edition, the youth network (Réseau Jeunes) of the french physical society (SFP) is organising the French Preliliminaries to select the team that will compete and represent France at the international meeting in May.
All students in Licence and Master enrolled in a french University can participate. PLANCKS is a competition all about team work, you can form teams of 3 or 4 with your collegues and compete in the preliminaries with your fellow students. If you don't have a team, don't worry about it : we will team you up with some other students, it is such a great opportunity to meet students from all around France.
Due to the Covid-19 situation, this competition will be held online on Saturday 6th of March from 14:00 to 18:30 : the competition will last 2hours and will be completed by a presentation of the PLANCKS competition, an opening lecture and a concluding discussion between students and young researchers in Physics.
Exercices will be written in English and student answers shall also be written in English. Do not worry! It is surely accessible for students of your level. You can find some samples of subjetcs previously given by other countries right here.
First step is to register. If you already have a team, please make notice on the registration form but note that you have to register individually.
