Welcome to the virtual DPG-Frühjahrstagung (DPG Spring Meeting) of the Physics Education Division

22 - 24 March 2021


The cancellation of the DPG Spring Meeting 2020 was also an unavoidable decision from today's perspective. It was not easy for us, because hardly anything affects scientific life more sensitively than the loss of encounters and lively exchange in direct conversation.

We can see today that our life and work will be determined by the pandemic for a long time to come. Against this background, a return to the usual conference format in spring 2021 is not yet conceivable. At the same time we do not want to miss our conference for a second time. That is why we have decided to hold an online conference within the originally planned period.

We are aware that this is not a substitute for a "real" DPG Spring Meeting, but an exception. At the same time, the changeover in recent months has given us an insight into the possibilities offered by digital communication. Against this background, we dare to hold the Spring Meeting 2021 of the Association of Didactics of Physics as a virtual conference.

We look forward to lively participation and exchange under unusual conditions!

With warmest regards

Johannes Grebe-Ellis
Chair of the Physics Education Division
