----------------------------------------------------------------
Dear GIREP member!

Near the close of another year, and at the beginning of the World Year of Physics, I would like to send you, on behalf of the GIREP committee, best wishes for a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year 2005.


I would like to use this opportunity to invite you to visit the homepage of the next GIREP Seminar (http://www.girep2005.fmf.uni-lj.si/), which will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia from 5 ~ 9 September 2005. Welcome!

On behalf of GIREP Committee
Gorazd Planinsic, GIREP secretary

IMPORTANT DAYS
Deadline for abstracts : 15 April 2005
Early registration closes: 1 June 2005
Seminar dates: September 5-9, 2005

GOALS OF THE SEMINAR
The Seminar aims to bring together those who are involved in building bridges between physics and public. It will focus on identifying synergies between informal and formal forms of physics education. The Seminar hopes to bring together teachers, researchers in physics education, program and exhibits developers from science centres and scientists from universities in common aim to present innovative ideas and search for new ways of how to increase public appreciation and understanding of physics and how to improve the scientific culture of citizens.

THE STRUCTURE OF THE SEMINAR
GENERAL TALKS
PANEL SESSIONS
DISCUSSION WORKSHOPS
ROUND TABLES
HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS

----------------------------------------------------------------------
GENERAL TALKS
General Talks are very important in the context of this Seminar: they offer an overview of the topics, which are then discussed in detail in the various Discussion Workshops.

PANEL SESSIONS
The Panel Sessions and the Discussion Workshops are related. The function of the Panel Sessions is to concentrate at the beginning of the Seminar the presentation of the contributions, in order to have more time available for discussion, collaboration and interaction during the workshops. The Workshop leaders and reporters will select the contributions to be discussed in the Discussion Workshops. The Panel Sessions are organized in three parallel sessions that consist of oral and poster presentations:

A. Science centres, schools and Universities
B. Learing physics from the experiments
C. Gaps and bridges in communicating physics to the public
DISCUSSION WORKSHOPS
Discussion Workshops are the core of the Seminar and they determine its outcomes. They benefit from the contributions of the general talks and from the contributions of participants. Each Workshop leader suggest relevant aspects for the discussion in the Workshop he or she lead, taking into account the contributions presented in the Panel Talks of the Seminar. The Reporters collect and report the outcomes from the Discussion Workshops. The Discussion Workshops are organized in seven parallel discussion fields that emerge from the Panel Sessions:

A. Science centres, exhibits, schools and Universities
DW A1 Science centres as physics education research fields
DW A2 Teachers' training in science centres or in non-formal environment
DW A3 Linking formal and informal contexts for physics education
B. Learing physics from the experiments
DW B1 Hands-on physics
DW B2 Demonstrations and science shows
C. Gaps and bridges in communicating physics to the public
DWC1 Scientific Literacy and Public Understanding of Physics
DWC2 Media and ICT
ROUND TABLE
Some time will be devoted to Round table discussions of the concerns of the Seminar from a different point of view (the themes will be announced latter).

HANDS-ON WORKSHOPS
Different hands-on practical activities in the form of workshops for limited number of participants will be organized in the pre-seminar period and during the meeting.
