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.
