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 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.
