Workshop organization and MOU signing between the « Société Française de Physique » (SFP) and the Institute of Physics of Singapore (IPS)
From 16th to 19th January 2012, a French-Singaporean seminar titled: « Condensed Matter and Quantum Information Physics : Shedding New Light with Atomic Systems » was held at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU). A series of presentations about general physics (quantum physics, material sciences) was given during three days with a key point the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the “Société Française de Physique” (SFP) and the Institute of Physics of Singapore (IPS).
The goal of this MOU is to reinforce the collaborations between France and Singapore in the field of basic physics. A biennial conference will be held every two years alternatively in France and in Singapore in order to maintain the relations between the two societies.
This event has gathered more than 40 specialists particularly interested by the diversity of the proposed subjects and the opportunity to exchange ideas directly with the speakers. It has been organized by the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) with the support of the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (SPMS), the Department of Physics, NUS and the French Embassy in Singapore.
