US Chapter of Nepal Physical Society (US Co NPS)

An idea has been playing football in my mind for long time. We have had few discussions on personal level to some colleagues. I know that it will take long time for this idea to come true, however, writing on it should be OK...

Nepal Physical Society (NPS) should be proud as her members are growing and going aboard for further education with the aim to gain Degrees in prestigious Universities around the Globe.  Some informal data show that there are more than 250 Physicists aboard pursuing higher studies in countries like USA, Norway, Japan, Korea, India etc... Among them most of the mass is concentrated on USA.

It has been long realized the necessity of co-ordination between Physicists aboard and NPS. The communication has been on personal level and few activities also happen at personal level by personal interests/volunteers.

At this point, one can envision having a US chapter of Nepal Physical Society.
I think, many respected physicists are more knowledgeable on how to run a chapter. What we need is a widespread discussion on how to do it. The right time is coming, are we able to see it?

Being a proud member of NPS, I have been writing few stuffs related to nps, which can be found here... Please be advised that these are my personal views. One has utmost right to agree or dis-agree on it!

On the google map, we have been able to list about hundred people. The list keeps on growing as we come to learn about Nepali Physicists around the Globe. Please leave a comment with your Name, University, your URL, field of study/research. We will be glad to include you!
