Background

Few-body physics spans a wide range of phenomena in various fields of physics such as particle and nuclear physics, molecular and atomic physics, chemistry, mathematics, and computational physics. In particular, recent developments in accelerator and detector technologies open now a new era for measuring numerous observables with unprecedented accuracy, which were previously not accessible. In addition, new theoretical methods and computational capabilities have been developed or expanded, so that we are able to understand these few-body phenomena at a deeper level. To bring out fruitful new results and novel ideas, it is essential that these experimental and theoretical efforts merge together for the betterment of the discipline.

The conference was initiated in the Asia Pacific area as a counterpart to the successful European Conference of Few-Body Problems in Physics, in addition to the International Few-Body Conference Series and the Few-Body Gordon Conference series in North America. Following the success of the first conference, APFB99, held in Tokyo 1999, the second in Shanghai 2002, the third in Thailand 2005, and the fourth in Indonesia 2008, we are pleased to announce that the fifth conference, APFB11, will be held in Seoul, Korea, August 22-26, 2011.

Objectives

The Fifth Asia-Pacific Conference on Few-Body Problems in Physics aims at bringing together theoretical and experimental physicists who are investigating few-body aspects of the above physics fields, and to provide an opportunity for them to present new results and techniques, and borderless discussions among participants including beginning researchers and experts, so that they are stimulated and inspired for future research in their own fields.



Topics
The Scientific program of APFB11 will span the following topics:
   - Few-hadron systems and their interactions
   - Hadron structure and QCD
   - Exotic hadrons and atoms
   - Hadrons, few-body problems and nuclear matter from holographic QCD
   - Effective Field theory in few-body physics
   - Few-body approaches to structure of light nuclei and hypernuclei
   - Few-body systems near stability and their interactions
   - Symmetries and symmetry breaking
   - Electroweak interactions in few-hadron systems
   - Atomic and molecular systems
   - Others related subjects
