The next Asia-Pacific conference on few-body problems in physics (APFB2020) will be held at KANAZAWA BUNKA HALL, Kanazawa, Japan, from 19 to 23 August 2020. This will be the 8th edition of this conference series which has previously taken place in Tokyo (1999), Shanghai (2002), Thailand (2005), Indonesia (2008), Seoul (2011), Adelaide (2014), and Guilin (2017).


The venue of this conference will be KANAZAWA BUNKA HALL (google map) in the center of Kanazawa city, Ishikawa prefecture.
