Proceedings of Technical Sessions

The 1st Technical Session of the Institute of Physics Sri Lanka was held on March 29, 1985 in conjunction with the 5th Annual General Meeting at the auditorium of the Sri Lanka Association for the Advancement of Science. From then onwards, the Institute has held its Technical Sessions in conjunction with the Annual General Meetings. Although the proceedings of the technical sessions were not initially published and circulated to members, the Institute maintained the abstracts of papers presented at the technical sessions in the archives.

In 1997, the Institute decided to publish the full papers of the technical sessions and disseminate the printed proceedings to its members, University libraries, and relevant research organisations free of charge. In the year 2007, the proceedings of the technical sessions were made available on the Institute website. Currently, the institute maintains electronic copies of full papers that were presented at its technical sessions from year 2000 onwards.

It should be noted that abstracts of all papers presented during the years 1985-1996 have been taken from the archives and made available online with slight modifications. However, the longer abstracts were edited to fit into one single page following the IPSL guidelines. At the time of writing this note, the abstracts related to the 1987, 1992, 1993, and 1994 technical sessions are being processed.

All references to the abstracts presented at the technical sessions during the years 1985-1996 should be cited as ‘Proceedings of the Technical Sessions of the Institute of Physics, Sri Lanka, session #, (year), paper #’.
