participants Proceedings:

The Rencontres du Vietnam began with a meeting in Hanoi on Particle Physics and Astrophysics in December 1993; a second one was held in Saigon in October 1995. The third Rencontres du Vietnam, devoted to Condensed Matter Physics was held in Hanoi in January 1999. The fourth Rencontres du Vietnam, entitled Physics at Extreme Energies, was also held in Hanoi in July 2000. And finally astrophysicists and particle physicists gathered in August 2004 for the fifth Rencontres focused on New Views in Particle Physics and New Views on the Universe.

The aim of the Rencontres has been to extend the successful international collaboration of Europe, Russia, Japan and the United States in these rapidly evolving fields to the emerging Pacific rim countries.

The number of countries represented and the presence of leading scientists has emphasised the importance which the international community places on scientific links with Vietnam.

As a natural continuation of this series, two parallel conferences, one on nanophysics and the other on astroparticle physics, will be organised in 2006.
