A brief history…
The International Physicists’ Tournament was born in Ukraine in 2009 as a continuation of a long tradition of physics competitions in USSR. It brought together 16 teams from the leading universities of Ukraine and neighboring countries. The two first editions of the tournament took place at Kiev University, and the third and fourth editions occured at Moscow Institute of Technology in Russia. In 2013, the tournament moved west, to Switzerland where the fifth and sixth editions took place at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. The seventh edition, in 2015 was held at the University of Warsaw, in Poland. The eight edition, in 2016, took place in Paris, France. Most recently, the ninth edition took place in 2017 at Chalmers in Gothenburg, Sweden.
