Austrian Physical Society
The Austrian Physical Society (German: Österreichische Physikalische Gesellschaft) is the national physical society of Austria.
Until 1938 Austrian physicists were part of the German Physical Society. On 13 December 1950 it was decided to found a separate society for Austria and Fritz Kohlrausch was elected as first president in 1951.
Every year it awards a prize to a promising young physicist. Alternating every year, this is the Ludwig Boltzmann Prize for theoretical physics and the Fritz Kohlrausch Prize for experimental physics.
