Symposium “Frontiers of Fundamental Physics”, Aix-Marseille, 15-18 July 2014

The 14th annual international symposium “Frontiers of Fundamental Physics” (FFP14) which will be held in Marseille 15 – 18 July 2014 , at the Faculty of Sciences of Aix Marseille University (AMU).

FFP Symposium began in India in 1997 and it became itinerant starting from 2004. Indeed, many symposium took already palces through Europe, Canada and Australia. It covers topics in fundamental physics with the objective to enable scholars working in related areas to meet and exchange ideas. In addition to highlighting the progress and breakthrough in the mean topics of the meeting, the symposium invites the leading researchers to reflect on the educational aspects of our discipline. Moreover, the scientific and conceptual foundations of sciences are also discussed through a philosophical and epistemological viewpoints. Several eminent scientists, such as the laureates of prestigious awards (Nobel, Fields Medal,…), participate constantly in these meetings.

FFP14 develops around seven main themes, which are

• Astroparticle Physics
• Cosmology
• High Energy Physics
• Quantum Gravity
• Mathematical Physics
• Physics Education
• Epistemology and Philosophy

The morning is devoted to the plenary session, with talks for large audience of physicists in its first half (9:00-10:30), and more specialized in its second half (11:00-12:30); this part will be held in two amphitheaters. The parallel session of the Symposium will take place during the afternoon with seven thematic conferences and an additional one on open topics named “Frontiers of Fundamental Physics”. These conferences will be organized around the contributions of participants, in addition of the ones of invited speakers.

The abstract submission is described on the website of the Symposium :
