Call for International Molecule-type Workshops
September 2014 version
Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP), Kyoto University, calls for proposals to organize international molecule-type workshops under the Yukawa International Program for Quark-Hadron Sciences (YIPQS).
The international molecule-type workshop program is intended for intensive discussions and collaborations among participants for an extended period of time, from two weeks to a few months. Provided that a proposal satisfies the requirements given below, we are happy to accept any new type of proposal. For example, the style of a workshop, including whether it is closed or open to the public, is totally up to the organizers of the workshop. It may be a brain-storming type of workshop on some new topic, or it may be to carry out and complete a collaboration, or else. YITP hopes that through these workshops the participants will feel at home, have valuable discussions, and may be able to contribute to further progress in theoretical physics.
· The length of a workshop must be two weeks or more, where a week means five working days (which may include public holidays that do not fall on the weekends). A workshop may be divided into two separate weeks if necessary.
· The workshop participants must include two or more core participants. Core participants are discussion leaders and workshop organizers. A faculty member of YITP should be included among the organizers as a core participant or a contact person.
· At least one of the core participants has to have a principal affiliation outside of Japan and stay at YITP for two weeks or more.
· Upper limit of the budget for each workshop is 2,000,000 yen.
YITP calls for the Molecule-type workshops several times a year. Exact deadline for each call will be announced on the YIPQS homepage. Application must be submitted 3 months before the starting date of the workshop at latest.
Submit the following items via E-mail to
<yitp_apply_AT_yukawa.kyoto-u.ac.jp> (Replace _AT_ with @).
· International molecule-type workshop proposal application form.
· In case the length of a workshop exceeds a month, an explanation for a longer workshop must be given in the application form. A research plan (with a rough schedule, with the length of 80 words or more) for each participant who stays more than a month should be included.
· In case the budget request exceeds 1,000,000 yen, an explanation for a larger budget must be given in the application form.
· PDF copy of a related paper (if any).
The application form can be downloaded from the YIPQS homepage
As soon as your application has been received, an acknowledgement is sent to you from the secretary office. If you havenft received it within a week, please send an inquiry to
<yitp-mol_AT_yukawa.kyoto-u.ac.jp> (Replace _AT_ with @).
5. Screening and approval
Applications are screened by the YIPQS executive committee and the YITP program advisory committee. The result will be informed via E-mail.
6. Workshop preparation
If approved, the organizers should submit a list of participants.
· a list of participants from abroad who are to be supported, with their arrival and departure dates and other relevant schedules during their stay 6 weeks at latest prior to the workshop.
· a list of domestic participants who are to be supported, 3 weeks at latest prior to the workshop.
The organizers must submit a report within a month after the end of the workshop. A workshop report should include a list of participants, activity during the workshop, and the achievements (approximately 2 pages in A4 paper).
