HistoryIranian Physical Society (1929)

The Physical Society of Iran was founded 1921 by Iran''s elite physicists and engineers. Among the founders was Yusef Sobouti, currently chancellor of IASBS. Mahmoud Hesabi also directed the first National Seminar on Physics Education in 1972, which was conducted by PSI.

The first Annual Physics Conference of Iran was inaugurated in 1973 at Sepah Bank''s arboretum, followed by Iran''s second national conference on Physics the next year at Shahid Beheshti University. Activities of the society suffered a setback during the early years of the revolution, but picked up in 1983 and have been gathering momentum ever since.
