To foster a culture of innovation and creativity among the young students, IAPT has instituted the annual National Student Symposium on Physics (NSSP). The yearly series started in 2013 in collaboration with the Department of Physics, Panjab University, Chandigarh. The Symposium provides a national forum to young students to present their new ideas and innovative work at an early stage of academic career. The fifth in the series, NSSP-2017, will be held during 10–12 November 2017.
