POSTPONED: Conference Sign Up – May 2020

UPDATE: Considering the current world situation, we have decided to postpone the conference. We still would like to share the stories of some of the amazing women in the history of the Niels Bohr Institute, and we will make an announcement of a new conference date when it becomes possible.

The student essay competition is likewise postponed until further notice.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at mail@kvinderifysik.dk Stay safe, everyone!


On May 11th, 2020, Kvinder I Fysik (KIF) and the Niels Bohr Archive (NBA) will jointly host the one-day conference “The women of NBI – at Niels Bohr’s side or in his shadow?“ at the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI)  in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The conference will focus on the women who played important roles in the history of NBI, be it as physicists or researchers from other areas of the natural sciences, or as non-scientific staff or otherwise influential figures.

Anthea Coster (MIT Haystack Observatory) will give a keynote lecture on Lise Meitner, additional speakers will speak about other women in the history of NBI. 

In relation to the event we also have an essay competition. Read more about the essay competition here.

The conference is open to members of KIF (Kvinder i Fysik/Women in Physics) and/or DFS (Dansk Fysisk Selskab/Danish Physical Society). If you wish to become a member of KIF sign up using the menu and for DFS sign up here.
