ASC 2018 Logo

Asian Science Camp 2018 (ASC 2018) will be held in Manado, Indonesia from the 3rd to 9th August, 2018 in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.

As you may well know, 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 and Universities (1st and 2nd year) who show keen interest and promise in science.

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 ASC provides a platform for dialogue and discussion amongst promising talented youth and invited Nobel Laureates and Eminent Scientists. It also helps to develop international friendship and cooperation among Asian young scientists of the next generation.

ASC 2018 is organized by the Surya Institute (SI) with strong support from the Provincial Government of North Sulawesi. It is the 12th of the series, following successful camps at Taipei (2007), Bali, Indonesia (2008), Tsukuba, Japan (2009), Mumbai, India (2010), Daejeon, South Korea (2011), Jerusalem, Israel (2012), Tsukuba again (2013), Singapore (2014), Bangkok, Thailand (2015), Bangalore, India (2016), and Kampar, Malaysia (2017).

At ASC 2018, the student delegates can look forward to stimulating lectures by world-renowned Nobel Laureates and Eminent Scientists, Plenary Sessions, Parallel discussion sessions, poster presentations, social activities and sightseeing tours. The working language will be English.
