The problems of the IPT and GPT 2023 are out:

GPT 2023:

Online Round (First round of the GPT 2023 on January 14th, 2023)

The first round of the GPT 2023 will take part online and the best teams will qualify for the in person round of the GPT that probably will be in Erlangen (see below).

The problems for the IPT 2023 will be used:

Teams of three to six students are welcome to participate. Single students can also take part and will be assigned to a team by us. To participate, it is sufficient to work on and prepare ideas for one problem per team member. There is no registration fee.

The general principles of the GPT and IPT can be found here. Some additional rules for the GPT are given here. In the online competition probably only the roles of reporter and opponent will be used (i.e., there will be no reviewer).

The online competition will take place on January 14th, 2023. In case of too many teams for one day, there might also be physics fights on January 15th, 2023. Registration is open and will end on December 31st, 2022.

In person round of the GPT 2023 (probably in Erlangen on March 17th to March 19th, 2023)

The successful participants of the online round of the GPT 2023 qualify for the in person round of the GPT 2023 that probably takes place March 2023 (most likely in Erlangen on March 17th to March 19th, 2023; in case of conflicts with an too early date of the IPT 2023, we might decide to move the In-person-round to an earlier date).

The rules will be similar as for the online competition, except that all three roles (reporter, opponent and reviewer) will be used and two problems per team member have to be prepared.

And the winners of the GPT 2023 will be qualified to take part as the German team at the IPT 2023!
