L'ICCUB a Physis 2019

1st batx.


To bring this fundamental science closer to pre-university students, the Faculty of Physics of the University of Barcelona organizes its usual Summer Physics Campus " Physis" for students of 1st year of Baccalaureate. (June 17 to 21, 2019)

The Institute of Cosmos Sciences participate in this edition with two talks and a practical exercise.

  • LHC: La guerra de la matèria i antimatèria, by Dr. Eugeni Graugés
  • La vida a l'oceà còsmic, by Dr. Josep Maria Solanes
  • Explorant l'univers, by Javier G. Subils, PhD i Óscar Jiménez, master student.


Physis 2019 consists of five-morning sessions in which the participants attend plenary dissemination conferences and carry out practices with active participation in small groups within the laboratories of our centre. All scheduled activities address topical topics in the fields of meteorology and climatology, Astrophysics and Cosmology, elementary particles, relativity, quantum, new materials, superconductivity, solid-state, electronic technology, etc.

The campus program is developed exclusively for faculty from the different departments and research institutes of the Faculty of Physics of the UB, under the coordination of the decanal team.

Once the campus is completed, attendees will receive a diploma certifying their participation.



Students of first of baccalaureate (students must have completed and passed 1st of baccalaureate during the course 2018-2019)


The activity is limited to 90 students.

In case the number of registrations far exceeds this figure, students will be selected according to their academic record, paying special attention to the qualifications obtained in the subjects of a scientific and technological nature.
