FIP Outreach & Communication Committee (OCC)

Following the need of the APS Forum on International Physics to improve and update its outreach and communication means and tools, the OCC has been established as an ad hoc committee. The OCC contributes to the FIP Newsletter, the FIP webpages and social media. It is fully engaged in the development of online initiatives in COVID times and in the launch of related promotional videos. It also follows the relations with international laboratories, institutions, and associations with the goal to find new effective ways to strengthen the engagement of the APS, especially in developing countries. The OCC members are:

  • Luisa Cifarelli, University of Bologna, Italy (Chair)
  • Elena Aprile, Columbia University, NY
  • Paola Catapano, CERN, Geneva
  • Amy Flatten, APS
  • Alan Hurd, LANL, Los Alamos, NM
  • Marilena Longobardi, University of Geneva, Switzerland
  • Joe Niemela, ICTP, Trieste, Italy

For requests and suggestions, please write to Luisa Cifarelli
