Past International Conferences on Physics Education

International Commission on Physics Education organizes, more or less annually, the International conferences on physics education, often in cooperation with other relevant bodies (GIREP, EPEC, MPTL and other). IUPAP (and its Commission C14) also supports and endorses further international conferences on physic education and physic education research.
