Following a 2-year interruption, we resume Bangkok High-Energy Theory workshops with this 10th edition.
The workshop is hosted by the
Bangkok Fundamental Physics Group
and will cover a broad range of issues in high-energy
theory, such as
gravity quantization (including string and matrix theories),
non-perturbative dynamics of gauge theories, fundamental theoretical
aspects of early cosmology, etc.
The talks are expected to be informal and interactive, with a
substantial pedagogical component. We strongly encourage blackboard
This workshop will be followed by the 5th BANGKOK WORKSHOP ON DISCRETE GEOMETRY, DYNAMICS AND STATISTICS
held at the same venue later in January.
PRE- AND POST-WORKSHOP RESIDENCE PROGRAM:
Participants are invited to remain in residence for informal
communication and collaboration during the weeks preceeding (January 2-6)
and succeeding (January 16-20) the workshop. Please indicate the
prospective timing of your stay during registration.
Please register by filling in the online form
or by contacting the organizers
There are no registration fees. All participants are self-funded and do not receive material support from any workshop sources.
The workshop will be held at the physics department of Chulalongkorn University
(commonly abbreviated as "Chula", pronounced choo-lah, with a stressed second syllable), Thailand's
natural science fields centrally
in the modernized Pathumwan
district of Bangkok.
Citizens of a large number
of nations (including EU, US, UK, Canada,
Korea, a number
of South-East-Asian countries and Hong Kong passport holders) enjoy visa-free
to Thailand for
up to 30 days. Some others (including India, mainland China and Taiwan
holders) can obtain a visa-on-arrival
at the airport for up to 15 days.
Participants are expected to arrange their own accommodations. Reservations should
not be difficult to make via, e.g., booking.com
or by contacting the hotels directly. Being an
of a gigantic tourist industry, Bangkok offers plentiful accommodations
at all luxury levels, priced considerably lower than the general
international standards. It should not be difficult to find housing
within 1km of the workshop location indicated on this
. A neat and clean mid-range (around 1200-1400 baht/night) hotel
within walking distance that we can recommend is Patumwan House
. Happy 3 Hotel
has been preferred by some of our participants as a somewhat more upscale alternative.
We generally advise against the luxurious corporate highrise hotels, a
few of which are located close to the university, but inquire if
