Basic Structure of Scientific Program

Conference will from Monday (18 Sept.) to Saturday (23 Sept.). Morning sessions will be plenary session (no parallel session) in principle which may include ~30 plenaries. There will be 2017 S. Chandrasekhar Prize selection before the conference and the winner will be the first plenary speaker. Afternoon session will be dedicated for parallel sessions. Number of invited speakers is > 200 of above 7 fields. Number of orals will be decided according to the number of contributed abstracts. There will be DPP young research award.
