The Institute for Fundamental Study (IF) · The Tah Poe Academia Institute (TPTP) · Naresuan University

IF-YITP GR+HEP+Cosmo International Symposium VI

  • DATE
    3rd-5th August, 2016
    (On 6th, there is an excursion to Sukhothai)

  • SUBJECTS
    Superstring theory, Quantum theory of field and gravity, Cosmology and so on

  • VENUE
    A lecture hall, SC1-214, in the 2nd floor of the building, Faculty of Science, Naresuan Univ, Thailand (The blue line in the google map is the guide for people who come by taxi. In coming by taxi, normally one arrives at the point “117”. From there you can come to IF along the blue line.)

  • Currency to be used in the local life of Phitsanulok
    In the local life of Phitsanulok, all the payments are performed only by Thai baht. Further we are going to collect the registration fee by Thai baht at the venue directly. So it would be convenient to come by finishing exchanging the necessary amount to Thai baht. Exchanging can be performed at the airports of Bangkok, or there are many exchange shops in Bangkok. It is also possible in banks in the campus of Naresuan University or Phitsanulok. If you are concerned the rate, to finish exchanging in some exchange shop in Bangkok would be better.

  • PROCEEDINGS

  • Selected contributions from non-invited speakers can also be submitted for publication as part of the conference proceedings, which will be included in a Special Issue for Advances in High-Energy Physics (AHEP) entitled “Dark Physics of the Early Universe”. For more information, please see the call for papers.

  • The style of the articles to our special issue is two column. Here is an example of how the final articles will look in our special AHEP issue. The articles can be submitted in TeX in any form (pre-print, two-column, etc) but will be converted to two column form in the published version.

  • In regard to length there is in principle no limit but contact us if your submission will be longer than 50 pages.

    (ii) Dec. 16th, 2016 – reviews of manuscripts due
    (iii) Feb. 10th, 2017 – publication of special issue.
