200th Volume Published in Proceedings of the International School of Physics “Enrico Fermi” Book Series

October 20, 2020
Amsterdam, NL/Varenna, IT − In 2020 The Italian Physical Society and IOS Press are proud to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their partnership for the publication of the Proceedings of the International School of Physics "Enrico Fermi".

The School was founded in 1953 and consists of 3–4 advanced courses held every summer in Varenna (Italy) and directed by eminent scientists in all topical fields of contemporary physics. These proceedings have been published since the foundation of the School, so this book series has, besides the immediate pedagogic value, also a relevant interest as historic archive.

Also, the publication of Volume 200 is a great milestone. The first publication of the Italian Physical Society with IOS Press as co-publisher was Volume 124 in 1993 – Diagnostic Tools in Atmospheric Physics (Course CXXIV, edited by G. Fiocco and G. Visconti). As the volumes are not published in a chronological order and Volumes 201–203 were already published last year, we are proud to announce the publication of Volume 200 – Gravitational Waves and Cosmology.

Head over to the book series section for more information and to view all volumes.

About the series
The International School of Physics Enrico Fermi was founded in 1953 by Societa’ Italiana di Fisica (SIF) and consists of 3 advanced physics courses held every summer in Varenna (on lake Como) by eminent scientists. Its aims are to promote and disseminate up-to-date information on current developments in various topics of contemporary physics. Over the years, it has built up a prestigious reputation as a high-quality international school. A total of 60 Nobel Prize winners have presented their lectures in Varenna, out of which 13 had been awarded soon after lecturing there. The books in this series present the proceedings of the courses which are published by SIF and distributed in partnership with IOS Press.
