Gordon Research Conference.

Over the next decade our community will develop and deploy a variety of instruments designed to explore and resolve mysteries of the physics that governs nature at the short distances of colliders and the long distances of the cosmos. The physics goals and opportunities afforded by these news tools are gradually coming into focus and this meeting will explore the landscape of new fundamental physics experiments with an emphasis on those under consideration for the Asian region.
