The next annual meeting, hosted by CERN, will take place from 21 – 25 August 2017 in Geneva (CH) at two different locations. Starting at CERN on the 21st with internal meetings of some of the participating societies, the 22nd will be dedicated to plenary and invited talks and more. The meeting will continue in the Centre International de Conférences de Genève (CICG) from 23 – 25 August where further plenary talks and all topical sessions will take place. The meeting of the Swiss Physical Society (SPS) is organised as a joint meeting with the Austrian Physical Society (ÖPG) and the Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy (SSAA). The Swiss Institute of Particle Physics (CHIPP) will also participate as the meeting coincides with its normal 2 year cycle. We welcome for the first time the NCCR MARVEL (Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials). Taken together, they guarantee an exciting conference covering physics at its best, including two evening talks. Many thanks go to CERN for their generous help and support with the organisation.

The details of the annual meeting are available on or in the latest “SPG Mitteilungen” no.51, where different physics articles of general interest can also be found. The issue will be available around 20 March on
