Welcome to the 8th IUPAP International Conference on Women in Physics (ICWIP 2023) IUPAP has recognised a particular need to foster the participation of women in physics. The ICWIP Conferences series has a long history - not only of success and growth but also of making a difference to the physics community. The ICWIP 2023 conference will be held virtually during 10-14 July 2023. The conference is being organised jointly by the Gender in Physics Working Group (GIPWG) of Indian Physics Association (IPA) and the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR). The conference will be hosted by the Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) - a national centre of TIFR, strongly focused on promoting quality and equity in Science & Mathematics education from primary school to introductory college levels. While the community of women physicists in India has long been vocal in discussing gender issues and promoting equity, recent years have seen these efforts gain formal shape. The IPA established the GIPWG in 2017, while a Working Group on Gender Equity of the Astronomical Society of India was established in 2015. The national science academies in India have also set up panels on women in science. The Government of India has been strongly supportive of efforts to increase the participation of women in science. This commitment has been signaled by its having set up a Task Force on Women in Science and a Standing Committee on Women in Science. Most recently, it has launched GATI, an accreditation program to promote gender equity. Organizing ICWIP2023 in India is a unique opportunity to further India's commitment to the cause of promoting women in physics. In addition, many initiatives in the country to support gender equity in science will serve as illustrative examples for developing countries, dealing with women under-representation in Physics and other STEM disciplines. Participation in ICWIP2023 requires adherence to the conference Code of Conduct.
