  •     - Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 7th ICWIP that was planned to be held in Australia on July 13-17, 2020 has been cancelled. We expect it to be held next year at the same venue and on the same dates.

        - The final report of the project "A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical, Computing and Natural Sciences: How to Measure It, How to Reduce It?" is now available here.

        - The Waterloo Charter: A declaration of principles and a list of good practices for a more inclusive practice of physics. Final draft, to be presented to the IUPAP General Assembly in 2020.

        - The Global Survey of Scientists that was open in May-December, 2018, collected about 34000 responses, 7570 of them from physicists. The analysis of the results has been performed by members of the AIP Statistical Research Center and was presented at the Conference on Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical, Computing and Natural Sciences: How to Measure It, How to Reduce It? that took place in Trieste in November, 2019 (see below). Part of this analysis is included in the final report of the project .

        - The closing conference of the Gender Gap in Science Project took place at the ICTP in Trieste, Italy, on November 4-7, 2019. The main results of the project were presented there. For a brief description, please check the December newsletter of the IUPAP.

  • The International Science Council (formerly, ICSU) funded project, "A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical and Natural Sciences: How to Measure It, How to Reduce It?" of which the IUPAP was an active participant. Provisions are being taken to guarantee continuation of the project beyond the period of funding by the ICS.
