The third Asia-Europe Physics Summit
July 16-19, 2013

International Conference Hall, Makuhari Messe, Chiba, JAPAN

About the third ASEPS

ASEPS3 will be held from 16-19 July, 2013 in Chiba, Japan as part of the 12th Asia Pacific Physics Conference (APPC). The Summit is organised by the Association of Asia Pacific Physical Societies (AAPPS) and the European Physical Society (EPS). EPS also has a website for ASEPS3.

ASEPS3, the third ASEPS meeting, will bring together researchers and policy makers from Asia, Europe and the US. Plenary sessions will present latest research in fields such as high energy physics, quantum optics and climate. Four Round Tables will be organised, allowing for intense exchange of ideas on topics of particular interest for Asia-Europe co-operation:

 i) International Strategic Planning for Large Research Facilities – Science and Technology Issues;
 ii) International Strategic Planning for Large Research Facilities – Policy and Cooperation;
 iii) The International Year of Light and International Collaborative Activities.
 iv) Education and Outreach – Lessons and Challenges in Large Research Facilities;

ASEPS2013 will continue the work of the following 2 previous editions to reinforce cooperation in physics research between Asia and Europe.

                 ASEPS1, 2010, Tsukuba, Japan
                 ASEPS2, 2011, Wroclaw, Poland


                About ASEPS
This Summit aims at strengthening the cooperation in physics research between European and Asian countries. A balanced partnership between Europe, Asia and America appears crucial to carry out successfully any world-wide endeavor. The Summit will deal with programs addressing either issues in fundamental physics or physics research playing a significant role in other fields (i.e. biology, chemistry, earth, space sciences …).

                 Why Asia-Euro, Why Physics
Euro-Asia cooperation remains quite weak compared to Euro-Americas or Asia-Americas levels. No world-wide project will succeed if not based on a balanced cooperation between the three main regions (Europe, Asia, Americas). Therefore reinforcing the Asia-Europe cooperation can be seen as a first step towards reaching this equilibrium

Discovery in Physics often leads to new tools contributing strongly to the development of other research fields like in Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Space sciences and more. So focusing at first on physics which make this symposium manageable is a good starting point for a future extended cooperation.

What are the goals of the Summit ?
1.To discuss the scientific priorities and the common large scale equipments that could be shared between European and Asian countries in various physics research field: particle physics, astrophysics, astronomy, mesophysics, new materials, laser, nuclear physics (fusion, transmutation), bio-medical physics, sustainable energy, space research, IT, ...

2.To setup a dedicated framework that would help boosting the level of the Euro-Asia collaborations in Physics for the next 15-20 years.

3.To involve developing countries in doing basic research so as to bridge the knowledge/digital gap.
