The Samahang Pisika ng Visayas at Mindanao (Physics Society in Visayas and Mindanao) and the University of San Carlos – Talamban Campus (USC-Talamban), of Cebu City, Philippines cordially invite everyone to the 19th SPVM National Physics Conference, 2017 ASEAN Conference on Advanced Functional Materials and Nanotechnology (ASEAN-AFMN), and 5th International Meeting on Complex Systems (IMCS) to be held on October 19-21, 2017 at the University of San Carlos (USC), Cebu City, Philippines. This 3-fold event is officially endorsed by the Commission on Higher Education and the Department of Education. The ASEAN Conference on Advanced Functional Materials and Nanotechnology is organized in cooperation with the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD).
Tertiary and secondary physics educators and researchers, as well as physics students from different parts of the country are expected to participate in this three-day activity. This year’s conference will include several plenary and parallel sessions as well as poster paper presentations on relevant research findings in the fields of materials science, nanotechnology, medical physics, photonics, computational physics, theoretical physics, soft matter biophysics for complex systems and allied fields of practical significance including functional physics education programs and pedagogy in teaching physics. A Science Investigatory Project (SIP) Competition is also part of this year’s SPVM National Conference open for high school students. The annual SPVM gathering continues to serve as the venue for active dialogue between physics researchers/experts with physics teachers and students from all over the country and some foreign physicists.
