5th Asian Winter School on Strings, Particles and Cosmology

Jan. 10 (Mon.) - Jan. 17 (Mon.), 2011
Suite Hotel, Jeju, Korea

<General Scope>
This School is being organized jointly by APCTP, CQUeST, KIAS and IEU. It forms part of an ongoing series of Asian Winter schools organized jointly by China, India, Japan and Korea. The previous Schools were held in Korea, Japan, China and India. The current school combines with the 5th edition of the Asian Schools on Particles, Strings and Cosmology held annually in Japan. The current school also replaces the 15th APCTP Winter School on String Theory.

The School will cover various areas in String Theory, High Energy Physics and Cosmology. The intended audience consists of senior graduate students as well as practicing researchers whose primary interest is in String Theory. The lectures will cover a selection of basic areas as well as advanced topics at the forefront of current research

The school will be held in Korea between Jan. 10 - Jan. 17, 2011 on an island called Jeju Island, which is about one hour flight from Seoul.

Since it is the southern most island, it is milder than the mainland. It also has the highest peak in South Korea.
