Once every four years hundreds of physics students, faculty, and Sigma Pi Sigma alumni from all walks of life gather for the Quadrennial Physics Congress. They spend a packed weekend making new connections, interacting with scientists and distinguished speakers, debating common concerns for the discipline and society, and touring iconic scientific venues. Make plans now to attend the 2016 Congress in California's Silicon Valley!
