The purpose and scope of this Physical Sciences Symposia-2013 is to provide a forum for the discussion of the current state of the art of rapidly evolving Crystal & Graphene Science, Quantum Science and New Particle Science highly interdisciplinary fields. This will consists of three parallel theme meetings:

Crystal & Graphene Science Symposium (CGSS)-2013: This is our Second international theme conference, the first one held at this same location on September 5-6, 2012, which was inaugurated by Paul   Steinhardt of Princeton, Antonio Castro Neto of National University of Singapore and Charles Lieber of Harvard University. Study of design/synthesis of functional solid-state structures including organic molecular crystals and metallo-organic-polymers described as ‘crystal engineering’. Quasicrystals are unique form of solid; they exist universally in many metallic alloys and some polymers. Both Crystal Science and Graphene science (Graphite, Fullerenes and Carbon Nanotubes in general nanotechnology) has attracted a much attention these last years from both academic and industry laboratories, so we combined and grouped in to ‘Crystal & Graphene Science.’
Quantum Science Symposium (QSS) USA-2013: This is our Third international symposium in the physical sciences series. The first was held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA on September 26-27, 2011, which was inaugurated by MIT Physics Nobel Laureate Professor Frank Wilczek. The second meeting was held at the prestigious Peterhouse (college) of the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom on November 1-2, 2012, which was presided by Professors David Ritchie and Stephen Blundell of the University of Cambridge and Oxford respectively. The purpose and scope of this symposium is to provide a forum for the discussion of the current state of the art of rapidly evolving Quantum Science field. The branch of quantum spintronics and quantum computing has attracted a much attention in recent years from both academic and industry laboratories, so we combined and grouped into ‘Quantum Science.’
New Particle Physics Symposium (NPPS) USA-2013: New Particle Physics Symposium (NPPS)-2013, is our first international symposium in the high-energy Particle and Astro Particle Physics sciences series to be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, Waltham, western suburb of Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Particle physics is the study of the elemental building blocks that make up matter. This theme meeting will focus on the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions most importantly on the Higgs Bosons, Fermions, Leptons, quarks and other super symmetric particles. Both theoretical and experimental framework studies of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider and ATLAS studies will also be discussed. Additionally, the importance of these fundamental particles with respect to astro physics and cosmology will be emphasized. The branch of particle physics and astro physics has attracted a much attention in recent years from both academic and industry laboratories, so we combined and grouped into ‘New Particle Physics.’

In this international meeting, prominent researchers (theoretical and experimental physicists, organic, inorganic and physical chemists, materials scientists, biologists, mathematicians, electrical, electronic and computer engineers) from both academia and industry will gather and discuss the applications in form of keynote lectures, invited talks, short oral, and poster presentations.
Venue: Hilton Garden Inn is a star hotel located on the Rt. 95/128 high-tech corridor in Waltham, a western suburb of Boston/Cambridge, which is well connected by bus transportation.

All the members (except keynote speakers) who participate in this symposium have to register for the meeting by paying the appropriate registration fee
