20 June 2018 - 12:28, SIPS

The 12th Asian Science Camp (ASC 2018) will be held from 3 to 9 August 2018 at Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.

The ASC is an annual forum which aims to enlighten those science-talented youths through discussion and dialogue with top scholars in the world and to promote the international friendship and cooperation among the best young students of the next generation in Asia. The participating students are those selected from High Schools (11th and 12th grade) and Universities (1st and 2nd year) who show keen interest and promise in Sciences.

The idea of ASC was first mooted in 2005 after the Lindau Science Meeting by Professor Yuan-Tseh Lee, the 1986 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, and Professor Masatoshi Koshiba, the 2002 Nobel Laureate in Physics. Modeled after the Lindau Science Meeting which has been held in Germany for more than half a century, the Asian Science Camp will invite several Nobel Laureates and eminent scientists as key speakers on a wide range of scientific lectures.
ASC 2018 is organised by Surya Intitute with strong support from the Provincial Governement of North Sulawesi and the Ministry of Education. It is the 12th of the series, following successful camps at Taipei (2007), Bali (2008), Tsukuba (2009), Mumbai (2010), Daejeon (2011), Jerusalem (2012) and Tsukuba (2013), Singapore (2014), Bangkok (2015), Bangalore (2016), Kampar (2017) .
