Joint March Meeting & April Meeting

March 16–21 | Anaheim, Calif.

A teal square bounces playfully into view against a white background, accompanied by the text "APS March Meeting," before exiting to the right as the text disintegrates and falls out of view. A reddish circle falls from above, revealing the text "APS April Meeting" as it bounces. The circle bounces again, causing the text to disintegrate and fall out of view. The circle reappears, falling from above, and is joined by the teal square, which slides in rapidly from the left, colliding forcefully with the circle. As the two shapes bounce apart, another circle, light blue, appears from between the two. As the three shapes swirl around one another, a colorful mix of teal, blue, reddish, and purple gradients grows from the center of the shapes, covering the white background. The three shapes shrink and come to rest near the top of the view, with the teal square on top, rotated about 60 degrees, with blue circle below and slightly to the left, and the reddish circle below and to the right, slightly farther away from the teal square. White text appears: "APS Global Physics Summit" above "Joint March Meeting & April Meeting, March 16–21, 2025, Anaheim, Calif."

The call for abstracts, registration, and housing will open in September

Update me about

We are excited to share that the 2025 Joint March Meeting and April Meeting will now be called the APS Global Physics Summit. This event is the largest physics research conference in the world, uniting 14,000 members of the scientific community across all disciplines of physics.

  • Learn from your research areas of interest
  • Explore cross-disciplinary educational sessions and collaborative events
  • Unite to advance physics and create a bright future

This joint meeting reflects the inclusivity and adjacency of many physics disciplines.

Both in-person and virtual presentation and registration options will be available.

Get to know the convenient campus

Three venues adjacent to one another — Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim Marriott, and Hilton Anaheim — make up the APS Global Physics Summit campus. Each venue will host distinct sessions represented by the traditional March Meeting and April Meeting disciplines, as well as APS units.

Cross-disciplinary sessions and networking events will take place in all three places and in the outdoor plaza that connects them. Registration will give attendees access to all venues.

Anaheim Marriott

will host April Meeting sessions: particles and fields, astrophysics, gravitational physics, nuclear physics, beams, hadronic physics, physics education research, and more.

Anaheim Convention Center

will host sessions on quantum information, condensed matter, materials physics, magnetism, computational physics, industrial and applied physics, and other March Meeting disciplines.

Hilton Anaheim

will host sessions on SPLASHY matter — soft, polymeric, living, active, statistical, heterogenous, and yielding matter, and other March Meeting disciplines.

Who attends

More than 14,000 physicists from around the globe will meet to present their research and collaborate. Both March Meeting and April Meeting disciplines will be represented by:

More than 900 undergraduate students

5,500 graduate students

Physicists from industry, academia, and national labs

Employers recruiting for all career stages

Scientists around the world participating via international satellite sites
