The Department of Physics of Ateneo de Manila University participated in the 32nd SPP Physics Congress of the Samahang Pisika ng Pilipinas (Physics Society of the Philippines) last October 17-20, 2014 at the National Institute of Physics (NIP) Auditorium (Intel Center for Science Innovation), College of Science, UP Diliman.  The theme of the Congress is “Towards Enhanced Physics Research and Education”. There were a total of 120 accepted papers and 14 invited talks in pure and applied physics, and one physics education workshop. Of these, the Physics department made 6 oral and 6 poster presentations:
