The Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) is an international scientific organization which pursues the highest quality research in all areas of theoretical physics and promotes cooperation among scientists from its member countries or Asia Pacific regions and beyond. With these goals, APCTP invites proposals for programs every year as detailed below. Proposals and feedbacks from scientific community are crucial for determining activities of APCTP, and the selected proposals will constitute its core activities.
Any types of short-term and long-term programs are acceptable as APCTP programs. They are categorized as follows.
Category-2: Focus (intensive) research programs
Category-3: Topical research programs
Category-4: Activities in member countries and MOU-based joint programs
APCTP Category-2 programs are intensive research programs which typically last one week or longer. These programs enable researchers to collaborate and have profound discussions on focused research topics at the headquarters of APCTP, and the number of participants is limited.
APCTP Category-3 programs are topical research programs that are held throughout the year for selected research topics and discussions on recent hot topics through a series of mini-workshops and/or seminars. These programs enable local research groups and communities to develop international collaborations and to integrate into Asia-Pacific communities.
APCTP Category-4 programs are activities that will take place in member countries or jointly with the institutes under MOU. These programs aim to promote scientific activities in member countries. The application should be followed by the supporting letter issued by a general council member or partnership institutions unless it is an MOU-based program.
