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) will have 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.

  The Rencontres du Vietnam on
NuFact 2016

is the eighteenth in a series that started in 1999 as an important yearly workshop with emphasis on future neutrino projects.
The main goals of the workshop are to review the progress on studies of future facilities able to improve on measurements of the properties of neutrinos and charged lepton flavor violation as well as new phenomena searches beyond the capabilities of presently planned experiments. Since such progress in the neutrino sector could require innovation in neutrino beams, the role of a neutrino factory within future HEP initiatives will be addressed.
The workshops are not only international but also interdisciplinary in that experimenters, theorists and accelerator physicists from the Asian, American and European regions share expertise with the common goal of designing the next generation of experiments.
The NuFact16 workshop is divided into five Working Groups covering the following topics:
  • Working Group 1: Neutrino Oscillation Physics
  • Working Group 2: Neutrino Scattering Physics
  • Working Group 3: Accelerator Physics
  • Working Group 4: Muon Physics
  • Working Group 5: Neutrinos Beyond PMNS
NuFact16 will be preceded by the International Neutrino Summer School (INSS 2016) that will also be held in Quy Nhon, Vietnam from 17 to 30 July 2016.
