Given the continuing globalization of advanced technological development, the American Institute of Physics (AIP) and the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) have joined together with FAPESP and ICTP-SAIRFR to host an Industrial Physics Forum (IPF) at UNICAMP (The University of Campinas, Sao Paulo State, Brazil). This IPF follows up on the successful Industrial Physics Forum held at ICTP, Trieste in April 2012.The theme of the conference is "Capacity Building for Industrial Physics in Emerging Economies" and will be focused on a set of technical and policy topics closely related to scientifically driven economic development in Brazil, and Latin America more generally. The conference will have a rich array of sessions, ranging from technical sessions to policy, and a field experience that will highlight examples of science and scientists contributing to local economic development. Technical themes will cover topics such as advanced manufacturing, energy, communications, optics, and health. As always, there will be the popular Frontiers of Physics talks, featuring renowned researchers who are making breakthrough scientific contributions.As far as the event itself it will be a keynote speech night followed by 5 days with intense activities including several high profile keynote speeches, field experience, several talks, panel discussion, poster session all during the first three days. The last two days will be a short course on entrepreneurship for scientists, targeted at undergraduate and graduate students. The audience will be industrial R&D staff & leaders, physics faculty & dept. chairs, students/young scientists: postdoc, grad, & undergrad, government leaders, leaders of start-ups. WE expect this audience will be representing Brazil, Latin America, US, and countries in Asia & Africa. (AU)
