The Advanced Laboratory Physics Association (ALPhA), founded in 2007, is an association of college and university faculty and staff dedicated to advanced experimental physics instruction. ALPhA is independent and separate from the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), the American Physical Society (APS), and the Optical Society of America (OSA), but works with these and other organizations to advance instruction.

ALPhA's main projects for 2014 include the ALPhA 2014 Laboratory Immersions Program; continuing with ALPhA’s relatively inexpensive Single Photon Detector Initiative; and organizing a follow-up conference to the 2012 Topical Conference on Laboratory Instruction Beyond the First Year of College, which in turn is a follow-up conference to the The 2009 Topical Conference on the Advanced Laboratories. A new set of Laboratory Immersions will be offered for 2015.
