PLANCKS is an annual international team competition in theoretical physics. In 2022, PLANCKS was hosted by the DPG as a member of IAPS and was organized by the Faculty of Physics of the LMU Munich. PLANCKS was held as a hybrid event from May 5 - 8, 2022.

A retrospect on the event can befound in our News Section!

IMPORTANT: We have decided to make PLANCKS 2022 a HYBRID event because the pandemic situation and the current restrictions was still expected to make the in person participation of some teams complicated or even impossible. Accordingly, a big part of the programme in Munich has also been accessible online. Here you can read about details of the online programme. For the actual competition, online participants have solved the tasks in their home countries under the supervision of a local contact person.

Our guest lectures can still be found on the youtube channel of the DPG

What is PLANCKS?

PLANCKS stands for "Physics League Across Numerous Countries for Kick-ass Students". In this competition, students solve 10 theoretical physics problems in teams of 3 or 4. One team from each country is allowed to compete. In many countries this team is determined by national competitions, in Germany this is DOPPLERS. In addition to the competitive exam, the focus is on international exchange between the participating students. The programme is complemented by lectures, held by renowned scientists. For more information have a look at the iaps webpage!
