Why become a member of Φ·SOE?
The Physics of Socio-Economic Systems Division (in German: Fachverband Physik sozio-"okonomischer Systeme), abbreviated by Phi*SOE, is part of the German Physical Society (DPG). This comes with various benefits. For example, we can invite several international speakers each year, and junior scientists can get most of the conference fee of the yearly spring conference refunded. On the other hand, this requires DPG membership, which is not expensive at all, see here.
As a DPG member, you can become Φ·SOE member without any additional costs, you can visit some other conferences at reduced costs, and you will get a monthly copy of the Physik Journal. Furthermore, there are many partnerships with international organizations, see here.
In case you already are a member of another division or focus group of the DPG, this does not impede becoming a member of the Φ·SOE as well. It is possible to be member of up to two focus groups. This second membership is free of charge.
Becoming member of the focus group of "Physics of Socio-Economic Systems" will help you staying at the frontier of the accelerating developments in this exciting field. It will also allow the community to become more influential in terms of attracting larger funds, getting support by research programs, and providing positions for scientists.
How to become a member of Φ·SOE?
The collaboration is open to all DPG (German Physical Society) members who registered for Φ·SOE. There are no additional fees to become an Φ·SOE member, if you are already a DPG member. For the DPG fees please click here. The DPG offers many benefits to members and has special agreements with other international science associations.
DPG member please fill in this Φ·SOE Registration Form.
Non DPG members please sign up first for DPG with this DPG Registration Form.

The Φ·SOE has the objective to support the activities in the field of "Physics of Socio-Economic Systems"
Therefore, we offer Φ·SOE members the possibility to be presented on the websites of Φ·SOE with their relevant fields of activity. In perspective, this aims at a development of a web portal with:
- a summary of the existing research activities and scopes of application
- a "Who is Who" in the field of "Physics of Socio-Economic Systems"
If you are willing to support this project please contact us.
