Physics Symposium (PHY)

The Physics Symposium would bring together world leading scientists and young researchers in various fields of Physics from across the U.S. and Korea. Both fundamental and emergent physics will be presented and the link between the two will be discussed. This meeting will serve as a timely event just a year after the General Relativity’s Centennial. The progress of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) and the associated Rare Isotope Science Project (RISP) as part of the International Science & Business Belt (ISBB) in Korea is in close connection with the Facility of Rare Isotope Beam (FRIB) and other physics facilities in US.

Topics include but not limited to

High Energy Physics,
Nuclear Physics,
Space and Astrophysics,
Quantum Informatics,
Condensed Matter Physics.
