All poster presenters are strongly encouraged to submit the latest version of a pdf file of their entire poster (but not necessarily the absolute final version), by the extended deadline of
June 17, 2014, 11:59 pm, Singapore time.
The pdf file is intended for the judging panel to get a head start on the judging process, and to review the relevant references/literature, before the oral judging process takes place at the OCPA8 conference in Singapore. This will improve the judging process, in terms of quality, uniformity, as well as efficiency. The presenters will need to be on site to put-up the posters and remove them at the end, as well as to be on hand during the judging. See you all soon in Singapore!
Welcome to the OCPA8 Conference in Singapore, to be held from the 23 to 27 June 2014!
The OCPA conferences began in 1995 and have become effective forums to highlight the latest breakthroughs and achievements by physicists and astronomers worldwide, especially among the ethnic Chinese physicists. It has also been an active forum to exchange information about the concurrent frontiers in physics, promote physics research and teaching, and to enhance international collaboration among ethnic and non-Chinese scientists from various parts of the world.
The 2014 conference is the 8th of the series, following successful conferences at Shantou (1995), Taipei (1997), Hong Kong (2000), Shanghai (2004), Taipei (2006), Lanzhou (2009) and Kaohsiung (2011).
Continuing the spirit of past conferences, the OCPA8 will focus on “Looking forward to Quantum Frontiers and Beyond”. A wide range of interdisciplinary topics will be discussed, including accelerator physics, astronomy and astrophysics, atomic molecular and optical physics, biophysics, chemical physics, condensed matter physics, computational physics, gravitation physics and cosmology, high energy and nuclear physics, plasma physics, quantum information science and mathematical physics, statistical and non-linear physics, and science education.
In addition, there will be roundtable discussions on regional science collaboration and science education with Nobel Laureates and distinguished scientists. There will also be a special session on Physics Education for all teachers and students, including high school students.
One highlight of OCPA8 is the OCPA-APS Outstanding Conference Poster Awards which are jointly sponsored by the American Physical Society and OCPA. We welcome all interested students and young researchers to register and submit oral or poster presentations. All posters will be considered for the prestigious 2014 OCPA-APS Outstanding Conference Awards.
We warmly invite you to actively take part in the OCPA8 Conference!
