Since 1993 the Rencontres du Vietnam , which is an official partner of UNESCO, has organised international scientific conferences and schools to foster exchanges between Vietnamese or Asia-Pacific scientists and colleagues from other parts of the world.

The construction of the International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science Education (ICISE) in the city of Quy Nhon (Central Vietnam) has the ambitious objective to focus on developing Science and Education, helping young Asian students and scientists to meet with the International Science community, bringing the opportunity to accelerate their knowledge from attending lectures and sharing ideas with overseas high-level counterparts.

International Neutrino Summer School

The INSS 2016 school is the nineth in its series and is jointly organised by Fermilab and the Rencontres du Vietnam.

The goal of this school is to train the next generation of neutrino physicists, and its curriculum covers many topics such as an introduction to the standard model, neutrino oscillation phenomenology, accelerator and reactor neutrinos, neutrino cross sections, neutrino mass models, and neutrinos in cosmology. The target audience consists of graduate students and young researchers in both theory and experiment. We aim to cover the full breadth of neutrino physics over all energy scales. The school will include formal lectures, informal tutorial sessions and opportunities for students to present their own work.

INSS2016 will be followed, one month later by the NuFact 2016 conference that will also be held in Quy Nhon, Vietnam from 21 to 27 August 2016.
