2017 APCTP Scientific Activities

The Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) pursues the highest quality topical research in focused areas of theoretical physics and promotes cooperation, both among scientists from its member countries/regions and with researchers from around the world.

In 2017, to promote research activities and international cooperation, the center held and supported 133 activities, which are listed below.

- Category-1 (Conferences, workshops, and schools): 17
- Category-2 (Focus research programs): 2
- Category-3 (Topical research programs): 29 (10 topics)
- Category-4 (Activities in member countries and with MOU institutes): 23
- Other activities: 62
