Welcome Letter


20 August 2013


Dear Fellow Physicist/Administrator,


On behalf of the Organizing Committee for the 15th Asian Physics Olympiad (APhO), I am pleased to invite your country’s team to join the APhO 2014 which will be held in Singapore during May 11 – 19, 2014. Singapore had the honor of hosting both APhO and the International Physics Olympiad earlier and this will be the second time for Singapore to host APhO. It will be held at the National University of Singapore (NUS). The event is organized jointly by NUS, Nanyang Technological University, National Institute of Education Singapore, the Materials Research Society of Singapore and the Institute of Physics Singapore with the support of Singapore’s Ministry of Education.


Please note that each participating country may send a team consisting of 8 students at most and two accompanying leaders. The travel costs to and from Singapore are the responsibility of each participating country. The APhO 2014 Organizing Committee will cover all the official expenses for the team, including meals, local transportation and shared accommodation during the APhO period. Observers and visitors are welcome.


Following the established practice of the APhO, each participating country is requested to contribute a voluntary fee of US$1,000. Observers and Visitors who are also to share the accommodation will be charged US$1,200 each. Should any of leaders, observers or visitors wish to have single occupancy - accommodation, a surcharge of US$1,000 will be applicable.


Please feel free to write to me should you or your Government needs formal invitation. The Organizing Committee will be more than happy to be of any assistance in facilitating your participation.


First announcement of APhO 2014 may be referred for further details.


With best regards,


Yours sincerely,



Prof. B.V.R. Chowdari
