6th Biennial African School of Fundamental Physics and Applications (ASP2020)

Date: July 5-25, 2020

Venue: Cadi Ayyad University, Marrakesh, Morocco

The African School of Physics (ASP) aims to improve knowledge, capacity development and retention of African students. To this end, the school builds synergy between theory, experiment and practical applications, for a solid education in Africa. ASP develops these aspects of scientific disciplines through a coherent program that promotes networking and Africa-led partnerships.

With ASP, we expect to achieve sustainable training in Africa by encouraging investments in research and development,  and international cooperation. Through this work, we hope that the community of scientists who are at the forefront of science is enhanced and diversified thus fulfilling the mission of international research and education.

Topics:

  • Nuclear and Particle Physics;
  • Astrophysics and Cosmology;
  • Accelerators, Radiation and Medical Physics;
  • Materials Physics;
  • High Performance Computing;
  • Physics Education;
