24th European conference on few-body problems in physics

This conference will discuss recent developments in the field of few-body systems.

University of Surrey


The next European conference on few-body problems in physics (EFB24) will be held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom, from 2 to 6 September 2019. This will be the 24th edition of this conference series which has previously taken place in Aarhus (2016), Krakow (2013), Salamanca (2010) and Pisa (2007). 

Like the previous conferences, this conference will give a possibility to present and discuss recent developments in the field of few-body systems - that is, systems which can be understood in terms of a few effective degrees of freedom. This Conference will focus on recent developments in the field of few-body systems, in areas including but not limited to particle, nuclear, atomic, molecular, and condensed-matter physics, as well as astrophysics, mathematics, and chemistry.

Further information will appear on this site during 2018.
