News, 16 August 2018

The 12th Joint Workshop «Modern Problems in Nuclear and Elementary Particle Physics» starts on 20 August 2018. This year, the venue of the Workshop of the APCTP-BLTP cooperation is the Centum Premier Hotel in Busan which is maritime capital of Korea.

The main organizers are the Asia Pacific Centre for Theoretical Physics (APCTP), the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics JINR (BLTP). In 2018, the following Korean scientific centres participate in the organization of the Workshop: the Chungbuk National University, the Kyungpook National University and the Pusan National University; the Institute of Modern Physics, CAS, (Lanzhou, China) and the Research Center for Nuclear Physics of the Osaka University (Japan) also participate in the organization.

The main goal of the Workshop is to promote the close cooperation in the field of the nuclear and elementary particle physics between Asian countries and Russian leading scientific centers.

The Scientific Programme of the 12th APCTP-BLTP Workshop are hadron physics, nuclear physics, Standard Model and beyond (for nuclear and high energy physics), dark matter and dark energy, experimental facilities.

Asia Pacific Centre for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) is an international research institute for physical sciences. It is located in the Campus of the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), in Pohang, South Korea. The APCTP current member states: Australia, China, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Mongolia, India, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan. The Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics is a close-knit, multi-disciplinary research environment that hosts scientists working on challenging problems at the forefront of biophysics, condensed matter, quantum information, astrophysics, cosmology and particle physics. The institute also plays a key role in Korea by inviting international scholars, acting as a conduit for collaboration through focus workshops and training young scientists.

The first joint Workshop was organized by BLTP JINR and was held in Dubna on 18-23 June 2007. Further, these successful Workshops have been held annually in the countries participating in APCTP and JINR.
