2005 - The Einstein Year

Historians refer to the year of 1905 as Einstein’s Annus Mirabilis – “the miracle year”- when he finished and published his major works on the special theory of relativity, the quantum theory, and the theory of Brownian motion.
Due to the upcoming centenary of the Annus Mirabilis in 2005, UNESCO has declared 2005 the “World Year of Physics”. Consequently, numerous  activities, exhibitions, and conferences are presently being prepared worldwide. A schedule of upcoming events taking place in 2005 will be made available on this site.
