PER Conference Lists

PER Conferences

After the ICUPE of 1996, in College Park, a move was made to attach a conference to the AAPT national summer meetings. In Denver and Lincoln, these Physics Education Research Conferences preceded the AAPT meeting. In San Antonio and afterward, the PERC came after the AAPT meeting.

Each meeting has an associated theme, chosen by the organizers (listed in alphabetical order below in parentheses). The PERC was organized independently until 2001, when the AAPT began to help with logistical work such as registrations.

In 2001 and 2002, proceedings of the PERC were published privately, for all conference participants. These can now be found on PER-Central. In 2003, the conference Proceedings were first published as part of the American Institute of Physics conference proceedings.
