In partnership with the Emirates Mars Mission and Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Center (MBRSC), the Department of Physics at American University of Sharjah (AUS) is proud to host the international conference Frontiers in Theoretical and Applied Physics |UAE 2017 (FTAPS 2017). The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for physicists, astronomers, and space and material scientists from around the world to present the latest developments in the various dynamic fields of physics. The conference will provide ample opportunity to exchange ideas on rising research issues in physics, astrophysics, and space and material science, and to promote regional and international collaborations.
Contributed papers will be presented in parallel focused sessions on astrophysics, planetary and space physics, AMO and laser physics, condensed matter, material science and nanophysics. The conference program also includes five keynote lectures delivered by renowned scientists, and more than 50 invited talks by leading experts in those fields. Papers contributed to the conference will appear in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS) after going through a review process by the conference scientific committee. Moreover, authors of selected contributions will be invited to submit extended articles toward a focus issue in Physica Scripta associated with FTAPS2017.
The conference is endorsed by the American Physical Society (APS), Materials Research Society (MRS), and the Institute of Physics (IOP) in the UK.
