19–23 February 2018 YKIS2018a Symposium General Relativity - The Next Generation

Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University

On this symposium

This is the symposium meant for the intensive symposium week on general relativity held on the 4th week of the YITP long-term workshop "Gravity and Cosmology 2018" (GC 2018). This is also meant for the Yukawa International Seminar for the fiscal year 2017 (YKIS 2018a).

29 January–9 March 2018 Gravity and Cosmology 2018

Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, Kyoto University

Overview of this workshop

Cosmology has rapidly developed based on precision observational data. At present, the parameters in the standard cosmological model are being determined with good precision. However, physics behind the values of the parameters is still hidden in a veil of mystery. For example, we do not know what dark energy and dark matter are. While the scenario of cosmic inflation is widely accepted, the detail mechanism responsible for inflation is not known. We need to continue tackling the mysteries of the universe by using every possible means such as general relativity, statistical physics, particle physics and superstring theory.

Advanced LIGO has made the first observation of gravitational waves in 2015. In Japan, KAGURA is going to start its physics run around 2018. These gravitational wave telescopes will receive 10 - 1000 events per year from compact star mergers if these facilities achieve the expected performance. At the dawn of this gravitational wave astronomy and gravitational wave physics, innovative progress in foundation of physics is anticipated with new information to be available, which includes the birth of black hole and the test of the general relativity under the strong gravitational field. Furthermore, the observations of the gravitational waves from the astrophysical objects will eventually lead to the direct observation of the primordial gravitational waves from the inflation era. The gravitational waves will play the key roles for further development of cosmology.

Under the circumstances mentioned above, we believe that it is timely to have comprehensive but intensive discussion on the rapidly expanding frontiers of physics of gravity and cosmology, and hold "Gravity and Cosmology 2018", as a successor of the three long-term workshops held under the same title in the past (2007, 2010 and 2012).

During the workshop, participants stay at YITP with desks and other facilities. They can take ample time for discussions with other participants in a relaxed atmosphere of Kyoto.

In the 4th week, we hold a symposium, Yukawa International Seminar 2018 (YKIS 2018a) titled "General Relativity - The Next Generation ".

24–26 October 2011 Quantum Information: Codes, Geometry and Random Structures

Montréal, Canada

One of the primary concerns of quantum information theory is the design of codes for achieving communication in noisy environments, often while simultaneously achieving cryptographic objectives. The probabilistic method is often used to prove the existence of good codes and may even play a role in more explicit and efficient constructions. At the same time, many basic quantum information theoretic tasks have natural geometric interpretations that link them to a range of other application areas like compressed sensing and approximation algorithms through shared underlying mathematics. This workshop will provide a forum for participants to present the latest developments in the theory of quantum communication while highlighting the range of mathematical techniques used in the area, including representation theory, asymptotic geometric analysis, random matrix theory and operator theory.

The conference, organised by the Society for Foundations of Computational Mathematics, is seventh in a sequence that commenced with the Park City, Rio de Janeiro, Oxford, Minneapolis, Santander and Hong Kong FoCM meetings.

The conference will follow a format tried and tested to a great effect in former FoCM conferences: plenary invited lectures in the mornings, theme-centred parallel workshops in the afternoons. Each workshop extends over three days and the conference will consist of three periods, comprising of different themes. Although some participants choose to attend just one or two periods, on past experience the greatest benefit follows from attending the conference for its full eleven days: the entire idea of FoCM is that we strive to break out of narrow boundaries of our specific research areas and open our minds to the broad range of exciting developments in computational mathematics.

27–29 June 2011 International Conference on Information Society (i-Society 2011)

The conference encapsulates the concept of interdisciplinary science that studies the societal and technological dimensions of knowledge evolution in digital society. The i-Society bridges the gap between academia and industry with regards to research collaboration and awareness of current development in secure information management in the digital society.

5–12 June 2011 SPT 2011 - Symmetry and Perturbation Theory

Polignano, Bari, Italy

This conference will be slightly different from more recent venues in the series in that, in an attempt to fully recover
the interdisciplinary and informal character of the first SPT conferences, there will be no parallel session, and only
a limited number of talks. We regret that in view of this - and in consideration of the very high number of  talks in
SPT2004 and SPT2007 - not all the participants will be able to present a talk, and talks will be by invitation only.

Information about previous SPT conferences is available at

29 May–3 June 2011 ARIS - 2011 — International Conference on Advances in Radioactive Isotope Science

Leuven, Belgium

The first International Conference on Advances in Radioactive Isotope Science (ARIS - 2011) will be held in Leuven, Belgium, from May 29 to June 3, 2011.
This new series of conferences results from a merger of the “International Conference on Exotic Nuclei and Atomic Masses (ENAM)’ and the ‘International Conference on Radioactive Nuclear Beams (RNB)’.
The origin of the ENAM conferences goes back to the 1950s and 1960s to the ‘Atomic Mass and Fundamental Constants (AMCO)’ and the ‘Nuclei Far From Stability (NFFS)’ series of conferences. Held jointly in 1992, the conferences officially merged in 1995 in Arles, France where the first ENAM conference was held. Since then subsequent conferences took place in Bellaire, Michigan (1998), in Hämeenlinna, Finland, (2001), in Callaway Gardens - Pine Mountain, Georgia USA (2004) and in Ryn, Poland (2008).
The first RNB conference was organized in Berkeley, U.S.A. (1989) and the series continued with events in Louvain la Neuve, Belgium (1991), East Lansing, U.S.A. (1993), Ohmiya, Japan (1996), Divonne-les-Bains, France (2000), Argonne, U.S.A. (2003), Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy (2006) and Grand Rapids, U.S.A. (2009).
