IDEOLOGY


OBJECTIVES:

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 presentations.

Previous editions: 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012

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.


REGISTRATION:

Please register by filling in the online form, or by contacting the organizers directly.

There are no registration fees. All participants are self-funded and do not receive material support from any workshop sources.


VENUE:

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 leading school in natural science fields centrally located in the modernized Pathumwan district of Bangkok.


PRACTICALITIES:

Citizens of a large number of nations (including EU, US, UK, Canada, Japan, Korea, a number of South-East-Asian countries and Hong Kong passport holders) enjoy visa-free entry to Thailand for up to 30 days. Some others (including India, mainland China and Taiwan passport 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 other similar sites, or by contacting the hotels directly. Being an epicenter 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 map. 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 interested.

Climatic conditions in Bangkok are advantageous during the season of the workshop (roughly corresponding to a pleasantly warm and sunny summer in temperate countries).
