XLVIII International Symposium on Multiparticle Dynamics (ISMD 2018)
3 to 7 September 2018, Singapore
The Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS/NTU) and the National University of Singapore (NUS) are glad to host the 48th ISMD 2018 in Singapore. The last major high energy particle physics event in Singapore took place when we hosted the 25th Rochester Conference (ICHEP) in 1990.
The International Symposium on Multi-particle Dynamics (ISMD) has a long and proud tradition that dates all the way back to 1970 when it was first hosted in Paris (France). Since then, this very successful series of ISMD conferences has oscillated between Europe, America and Asia. Recent symposiums were held in Tlaxcala (Mexico, 2017), Jeju Island (South Korea, 2016), Wildbad Kreuth (Germany 2015) and Bologna (Italy, 2014).
The objective of ISMD is to provide a conducive environment for presentation of the latest high energy experimental data and theoretical results. It aims to facilitate stimulating discussions amongst the particle physics experimentalists, phenomenologists and theorists on high energy, heavy ions and astro-particle physics; with a common interest in scatterings that involve a large number of particles in the final state. ISMD consists of only plenary talks that spread over five days. For this ISMD, we are expecting about 120 participants with several coming from our neighbouring ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries.
Budding graduate students are encouraged to submit posters. The Franco Rimondi Association will award a cash prize of 1000 Euros for the two best posters presented at the Symposium by students and young post-doctoral fellows.
