Eötvös 100 events in early September
On September 6, an "Eötvös Loránd Cycling Expedition" starts from Székesfehérvár to Misurina Lake (Dolomites, Italy). The Eötvös Peak (Cima di Eötvös) rises here. The bicyclists, in organization of the ELTE-BEAC Polythlon Club will hand over the imaginary baton to the climbers of the Hungarian Tourist Association (MTE) on September 8. Tourists of MTE will also unveil a memorial plaque and visit the Eötvös Exhibition in Toblach.
At the Kiscell Museum in Budapest, on September 8, visitors have possibility to watch stereo slides made by Roland Eötvös.
On September 9, in the afternoon of opening ceremony of the scholar year of the Eötvös Collegium, there will be a joint event with the École Normale Supérieure and Scuola Normale Superiore. At 5 pm in the Rose Garden the garden pond here and that at the École Normale Supérieure will be symbolically connected. A monograph on the institution founded by Loránd Eötvös will also be launched.

Triannual Meeting of the Eötvös Loránd Physical Society (Sopron, 21-24 August 2019)At the triannual meeting of Eötvös Loránd Physical Society (Sopron, 21-24 August 2019) three plenary lectures were devoted directly on the life and work of Roland Eötvös (Jenő Sólyom: Loránd Eötvös the man, József Cserti: Loránd Eötvös the physicist, Viktor Wesztergom: Loránd Eötvös the geophysicist). In addition, several scientific and educational lectures were also connected to the Eötvös heritage. The story of re-measuring the famous Eötvös experiment (or after the co-authors: Eötvös, Pekár and Fekete the EPF experiment) was told by academician Lajos Völgyesi, and the first results were reported by Gyula Tóth. Researchers at MTA Wigner FK and BME have been able to reduce measurement uncertainty by an order of magnitude (from 10-9 to 10-10) thanks to the ideal location and automation of the instrument. At this meeting the physicists also commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Mendeleev periodic table. As the session chairman (András Patkós) pointed out, that time many experts could have been able to compile the periodic system of elements, but what Eötvös realized did not have any precedence. His work and results still have been admired by the world of physicists.
