Express of interest for attending the activities of the Division of PBBP of TPS

Dear TPS members,

The guidelines for creating divisions of Taiwan Physical Society were approved at the end of 2018. Through the establishment of divisions, we aim to make international collaboration and communication more efficient for each research field among Taiwanese and other physical societies around the world, and to enhance the international visibility of our community. The division can work to make the community more interactive and collaborative, to improve its research environment, and to educate young generate so people in the field can accomplish high quality research to make impact both academically and socially.
Several colleagues from the field of “Physical Biology and Biological Physics” made the efforts for proposing the organization regulations of the division of “Physical Biology and Biological Physics” (PBBP) in the past few months. The regulations were approved by the Division of Academy of TPS on March 17, 2022. Recently the Division of Academy invited its TPS chair, Ying-jer Kao (NTU), Chia-Ming Kuo (NCU), Chien-jung Lo (NCU), Chia-Lung Hsieh (Academia Sinica), Jung-hsin Lin (Academia Sinica), Keng-hui Lin (Academia Sinica) and Shi-wei Chu (NTU) to prepare for the establishment of the PBBP.

Here we invite TPS members who are interested in the activities of the PBBP to join the division.
If you would like to join, please express your interests at ... fGVCA/viewform?usp=pp url before 3/27 (Sun.).

All the best
TPS President Ying-Jer Kao
Vice President, Director of the Division of Academy Chia-Ming Kuo

 Statement by the Physical Society of Taiwan

Statement by the Physical Society of Taiwan

March 3rd, 2022The Physical Society of Taiwan (TPS) strongly condemns the continuing attack against Ukraine by the Russian Federation.While we believe that scientific research transcends national borders, the recent military action of the Russian government against Ukraine, a fellow democratic and sovereign country, has caused immeasurable human suffering and seriously undermines the fundamental principles for the advance of human civilization through scientific endeavors.Taiwan, despite obvious geopolitical differences, shares many of the ideals, experiences and struggles Ukraine has. We at TPS, would like to express our deepest solidarity with all Ukrainian citizens whose basic livelihood and freedom are gravely threatened by the current presence of a foreign military force.TPS would therefore like to call on the entire Taiwanese scientific community to protest unequivocally and take the appropriate punitive measures against the Russian federation for its ongoing violences within Ukraine.As part of the international physics community, TPS will do the utmost within its capability to support our colleagues in Ukraine whose research may have been severely impacted by the current tragic circumstance, in order to ensure the continuity of their careers.We are keenly aware that a large number of Russian scientists have signed an open letter against the invasion of Ukraine. We sincerely sympathize with them and would also like to stand in solidarity for any Russian scientists’ courageous action against an authoritarian regime.

The Taiwanese scientific community has long-established research collaborations with Russian scientists. However given the military action taken by the Russian government against Ukraine, TPS would like to call on relevant Taiwanese governmental agencies to carry out the following measures immediately:(1) Suspend all joint research programs co-sponsored by Taiwan and the Russian governments.(2) Expedite the visa application processes for Ukrainian scientists, scholars, or students to visit Taiwan.In this dark hour as Ukraine is experiencing, TPS strongly believes these measures will support our Ukrainian friends in need and lead to a brighter future.

2022年3月3日儘管我們深信科學研究超越國界,但最近俄羅斯對民主主權國家烏克蘭的侵略,已經造成無數人道危機,並嚴重踐踏我們以科學作為幫助人類邁向文明的基本價值。儘管台灣在地理位置和國情政治上與烏克蘭有所差別,但是我們擁有許多共通的價值, 經驗和困境。我們的自由與基本生活亦同樣面臨類似的武力威脅, 因此台灣物理學會在此聲明,我們將與遭受此脅迫的烏克蘭人民站在一起。台灣物理學會同時在此呼籲全體台灣科學家社群,共同採取行動抵制並強烈抗議俄羅斯政府對烏克蘭掀起的戰爭暴行。身為國際物理學界的一員,台灣物理學會將盡己力幫助目前身陷危機的烏克蘭同僚們,並設法支持他們的學業以及研究工作能夠延續。我們知悉已有許多俄羅斯科學家公開反對俄羅斯對於烏克蘭的入侵行為,我們感同身受並且對他們面對獨裁政府時的勇敢行動表示欽佩與支持。台灣與俄羅斯的科學家們有著深厚長久的研究合作關係;但在俄羅斯對烏克蘭進行武力侵略的當下,我們呼籲政府相關單位立即採取下列措施:1、暫停與俄羅斯政府的所有合作研究計畫。2、簡化簽證申請程序,以利被戰火波及的烏克蘭籍科學家、學者、與學生們停留訪問台灣。正值烏克蘭遭受襲擊的黑暗時刻,台灣物理學會相信上述措施會幫助我們的烏克蘭朋友們度過此危機, 迎向明日的曙光。 台灣物理學會

 The International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly for 2022

The International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly for 2022

Press release – 3 December 2021 We need more basic sciences to achieve Agenda 2030 and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This is the message sent to the world by the United Nations General Assembly on 2 December 2021: Member States approved by consensus the resolution 76/A/L.12 promulgating the year 2022 as the International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD2022).With this resolution, the United Nations General Assembly ‘invites all [its] Member States, organizations of the United Nations system and other global, regional and subregional organizations, as well as other relevant stakeholders, including academia, civil society, inter alia, international and national nongovernmental organizations, individuals and the private sector, to observe and raise awareness of the importance of basic sciences for sustainable development, in accordance with national priorities’.The United Nations General Assembly motivated its decision with ‘the high value for humankind of basic sciences’, and with the fact that ‘enhanced global awareness of, and increased education in, the basic sciences is vital to attain sustainable development and to improve the quality of life for people all over the world’. It also stressed that ‘basic sciences and emerging technologies respond to the needs of humankind by providing access to information and increasing the health and well-being of individuals, communities, and societies’. The successes and difficulties of the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic have been for two years a stark reminder of this importance of basic sciences, such as (but not limited to) biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and anthropology.The vote is the result of the mobilization of the international scientific community, led since 2017 by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), CERN (The European Laboratory for Particle Physics), and 26 other international scientific unions and research organizations from different parts of the world, under the auspices of UNESCO. Over 90 national and international science academies, learned societies, scientific networks, research and education centers are also supporting this initiative. They will organize events and activities all over the planet during this special year, to showcase and improve the links between basic sciences and the 17 SDGs.The resolution was proposed to the United Nations General Assembly by Honduras, and co-sponsored by 36 other countries. Its vote confirms resolution 40/C 76 adopted unanimously by UNESCO General Conference, 25 November 2019.The International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development (IYBSSD2022) will be officially inaugurated with an opening conference 30 June - 1 July 2022 at UNESCO headquarters in Paris. Events and activities will be organized around the world until 30 June 2023.Contacts:Michel Spiro, president of the Steering Committee for IYBSSD2022 – Luc Allemand, secretary general of IYBSSD2022 -
