1st International Workshop on Theoretical
and Computational Physics (IWTCP-1):
Condensed Matter, Soft Matter and Materials Physics
Da Nang – Vietnam, 30 July – 2 August, 2013

The First International Workshop on Theoretical and Computational Physics (IWTCP-1) will be held on July 30 – August 2, 2013 in Da Nang, the biggest city on the South Central Coast of Vietnam. It is co-organized by the Institute of Physics – Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (IOP-VAST), University of Science – Vietnam National University, Hanoi (HUS-VNU), and Vietnam National University at Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM).

The IWTCP-1 is a new activity of the Vietnamese Theoretical Physics Society (VTPS) organized in association with the 38th National Conference on Theoretical Physics (NCTP-38), the most well-known annual scientific forum dedicated to the dissemination of the latest development in the field of theoretical physics within the country. The IWTCP-1 is also an External Activity of the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP).

The overriding goal of the IWTCP is to provide an international forum for scientists and engineers from academia to share ideas, problems and solution relating to the recent advances in theoretical physics as well as in computational physics. The main IWTCP motivation is to foster scientific exchanges between the Vietnamese theoretical and computational physics community and world-wide scientists as well as to promote high-standard level of research and education activities for young physicists in the country.

The IWTCP-1 will be focusing on Condensed Matter, Soft Matter and Material Physics. The topics of the workshop have been selected and emphasized to meet the highest interests of current research activities in Vietnam and in the same time strongly connected to advanced aspects of theoretical and computational physics at international level. The IWTCP-1 program will include interesting and fruitful key-note and invited talks presented by leading experts in the world and contributed oral and poster sessions.

This meeting will be an excellent occasion for the Vietnamese and international physicists to discuss about research and collaborative projects inside one of the most developed economic centres in Vietnam. Furthermore, Da Nang has considerable charm in its own right. The city is surrounded of several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Imperial City Hue, the Old Town of Hoi An, the My Son ruins. Therefore, it will be also a good opportunity for our guests and participants to discover around and explore beautiful beaches.

We are looking forward to welcoming you and your partners in the IWCTP-1.

Selected papers evaluated by a peer review process will be published in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series.

Instructions for full paper submission

The proceedings will appear in the Open Access Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS), which is part of IOP Conference Series. All papers published in IOP Conference Series are fully citable and upon publication will be free to download. Authors may be interested to know that IOP Conference Series now receives in excess of 2.3 million article downloads per year, and is abstracted and indexed in Scopus, Compendex and Inspec, among others. Citations are tracked online using IOP Publishing’s citing articles facility in addition to the full citation tracking facilities provided by Scopus.

Important: please read before you submit a paper

PUBLICATION LICENCE FOR OPEN ACCESS PROCEEDINGS PAPERS. IOP Conference Series operates a publishing licence, under which authors retain copyright of their papers and they no longer need to sign and submit copyright assignment forms. Any author who wishes to publish in IOP Conference Series must agree to the terms of the licence and by submitting a paper for publication it is assumed all authors of the paper agree, in full, to the terms of the licence.

The licence terms and conditions are available online.

Where to send your paper

Manuscripts, prepared according to the author guidelines, should be submitted online to IWTCP-1 website (submit your manuscript) or by email to iwtcp@iop.vast.ac.vn by 30 September 2013.

Preparing your paper

IOP Conference Series uses author-supplied PDFs for all online and print publication. Authors must prepare their papers using LaTeX, according to the journal guidelines and templates, and then convert these files to PDF. Full instructions on preparing your paper, along with templates, can be found on the IOP Conference Series website.It is important to ensure that when you submit your paper, it is in its final form ready for publication, and has been thoroughly proofread. IOP do not copyedit papers and will not send out author proofs prior to publication. Please note: post-publication changes are not usually permitted, unless there are exceptional circumstances, so please ensure your paper has been checked for errors.

What you need to provide

  • The LaTeX file of your paper and all the figures archived in a single file (zip, rar or tar and gzip): when preparing your paper ensure that you follow the author guidelines
  • Any multimedia files you wish to publish online.
