Press Release (in German)

Lausanne, 22.03.17 / Am Swiss Young Physicists' Tournament an der ETH Lausanne massen sich am letzten Wochenende 63 SchülerInnen und Schüler. In hochstehenden Fights demonstrierten die Nachwuchsphysiker ihr Können. Für die besten führt der Weg nun an die Weltmeisterschaft in Singapur (mehr).

Results of Rounds 1 to 3:

A total of 63 students have registered for the SYPT 2017 at EPFL. Together with numerous jurors, guests, helpers and organizers they will take part in the 10th edition of the Swiss Young Physicists’ Tournament. The most important information can be found in our tournament brochure.

The tournament will take place in the CO building. Participants and jury members are kindly asked to come to the welcome desk in the entrance hall of the building. Already from 7.45 on we will be serving a welcome coffee. The complete program can be found here. Students are expected to stay until the end of the award ceremony.

The fight plan for the three preliminary rounds can be found here. Participants are asked to carefully read the tournament regulations. Please be aware that the jury will grade each participant according to the "scoring sheet". The best three teams will qualify for the final and the best nine on the individual ranking will receive an invitation for the team qualification during which the IYPT-team will be selected.

In addition, a guided tour through the EPFL physics department and a dinner program on Saturday will be organized.

We are looking forward to an interesting SYPT 2017!

For the first time the SYPT will take place outside the German-speaking part of Switzerland: With the EPFL in Lausanne we have found a very attractive venue for the SYPT 2017, which will take place on March 18 and 19. It seems appropriate because we have organized the SYPT already twice at the ETH Zurich (2013 and 2016) and in 2016 a team from the French-spearking part of Switzerland premiered at the SYPT. We are looking forward to a successfull and interesting tournament and thank the EPFL for their consent!

As a major part of the participants, jurors and also of the organizing committee is from the German-speaking part of Switzerland, the matter of accommodation is relevant. Naturally, the expenses will be borne by Pro IYPT-CH! The participants will be accommodated in the Guest House Lausanne and the jurors and coaches in the Swiss Tech Hotel.

New is the offer of the so called SYPT Physics Week. It allows students to prepare themselves for the SYPT during one week while being coached by experienced SYPT/IYPT coaches. Experimental equipment will be provided. At the Physics Week only the following problems can be worked on: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14.

Pre-Registration is now open until 15th January 2017: fill out this form. For questions please use the contact form.
