- Physics Brawl Online is a non-profit three-hour-long team competition for anyone with an interest in physics.
- Teams of up to five competitors are trying to solve as many physics problems as possible in a given time limit of three hours in a fierce competition of hundreds of teams from all around the world.
- Every team starts with the same seven problems, for each problem solved they get a new, more challenging one.
- It is possible to compete in Czech and English language.
- The participation is free of charge.
- The competition take place on Wednesday, November 23, 2022, 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. CET.
- Registration is open from October 3 until November 23, 03:00 pm CET.
Physics Brawl Online is organized on behalf of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic by the FYKOS student group, consisting mostly of students of physics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University. The rooms, hosting and hardware are provided by the Institute of Theoretical Physics and the Department of Applied Mathematics.
The FYKOS group also organizes an offline version of the Physics Brawl Online called Fyziklani (which in Czech loosely translates to "Physics Brawl") which is held annually in Prague, and the FYKOS Online Physics Competition taking place throughout the school year.events organized by FYKOS
