The Asian Science Camp 2014 (ASC 2014) will be held from 24 to 29 August 2014 at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
The ASC is an annual forum which aims to enlighten those science-talented youths through discussion and dialogue with top scholars in the world and to promote the international friendship and cooperation among the best young students of the next generation in Asia. The participating students are those selected from High Schools (11th and 12th grade) and Universities (1st and 2nd year) who show keen interest and promise in Natural Sciences (including Physics and Chemistry).
The idea of ASC was first mooted in 2005 after the Lindau Science Meeting by Professor Yuan-Tseh Lee, the 1986 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, and Professor Masatoshi Koshiba, the 2002 Nobel Laureate in Physics. Modeled after the Lindau Science Meeting which has been held in Germany for more than half a century, the Asian Science Camp will invite several Nobel Laureates and eminent scientists as key speakers on a wide range of scientific lectures.
ASC 2014 is organised by the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) at Nanyang Technological University with strong support from the Lee Foundation, Ministry of Education and National Research Foundation. It is the 8th of the series, following successful camps at Taipei (2007), Bali (2008), Tsukuba (2009), Mumbai (2010), Daejeon (2011), Jerusalem (2012) and Tsukuba (2013).
