Italian Physical Society
The Italian Physical Society (SIF - Società Italiana di Fisica), founded in 1897 is a non-profit association with the aim to promote, favour and protect the progress of Physics in Italy and worldwide. SIF represents the Italian scientific community, in the research, the educational and professional fields, either private or public, relative to all areas of Physics and its applications (Medicine, Biology, Informatics, Economics and Finance, Meteorology and Climate, Environment, Archeometry, Cultural Heritage and others).

It specializes in the communication and dissemination of scientific information to specialist audiences alike (general public, decision makers, teachers…). EDP Sciences produces and publishes international journals, books and internet sites with a predominantly scientific or technical content.
